1 O God, regard my humble plea;
I cannot be so far from Thee
but Thou wilt hear my cry;
when I by trouble am distressed,
then lead me on the Rock to rest
that higher is than I.

2 In Thee my soul hath shelter found,
and Thou hast been from foes around
the tow'r to which I flee.
Within Thy house will I abide;
my refuge sure, whate'er betide,
Thy shelt'ring wings shall be.

3 For Thou, O God, my vows hast heard,
on me the heritage conferred
of those that fear Thy Name;
a blest anointing Thou dost give,
and Thou wilt make me ever live
Thy praises to proclaim.

4 Before Thy face shall I abide;
O God, Thy truth and grace provide
to guard me in the way;
so I will make Thy praises known,
and, humbly blending at Thy throne,
my vows will daily pay.
