Jehovah Hear Thee in Thy Grief

Full Text

1 Jehovah hear thee in thy grief,
Our fathers' God defend thee still,
Send from His holy place relief,
And strengthen thee from Zion's hill.

2 Thy sacrifice may He regard,
And all thy offerings bear in mind;
Thy heart's desire to thee accord,
Fulfilling all thou hast designed.

3 In thy salvation we rejoice,
And in God's Name our banners raise;
Jehovah hearken to thy voice,
Fulfill thy prayers through all thy days.

4 Salvation will the Lord command,
And His anointed will defend;
Yea, with the strength of His right hand
From heaven He will an answer send.

5 How vain their every confidence
Who on mere human help rely;
But we remember for defense
The Name of God, the Lord Most High.

6 Now we arise and upright stand,
While they, subdued and helpless fall;
Jehovah, save us by Thy hand,
The King give answer when we call.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
