Representative Text

1 O Thou that hearest pray’r,
Now from thy throne
Bow down thine ear to us,
We are thin own;
While in thy name we plead
Grace for this hour of need,
O Saviour, intercede;
Help, Lord, thine own.

2 More of thy righteous will
Grant we may know;
More of thy precious love,
Lord, may we show;
Lift up the fainting heart,
Strength to the weak impart;
Thou our deliv’rer art;
Help, Lord, thine own.

3 Star of the rising morn,
Shine on our way;
Source of eternal truth,
Teach us to pray;
Still may our souls abide
Close to the bleeding side;
O Saviour, be our guide;
Help, Lord, thine own.
