Lord, from thy blessed throne

Representative Text

1 Lord, from thy blessed throne,
Sorrow look down upon!
God save the poor!
Teach them true liberty,
Make them from tyrants free,
Let their homes happy be!
God save the poor!

2 The arms of wicked men
Do thou with might restrain;
God save the poor!
Raise thou their lowliness,
Succor thou their distress,
Thou whom the meanest bless;
God save the poor!

3 Give them stanch honesty,
Let their pride manly be;
God save the poor!
Help them to hold the right,
Give them both truth and might,
Lord of all life and light!
God save the poor!
