Representative Text

1 Regard in tenderness, O Lord,
The ills Thy children bear;
Do Thou Thy gracious help afford,
And answer this our prayer.

2 We trust not in the arms of flesh,
We lean upon Thy word;
For Thine own arm omnipotent,
Is mightier than the sword.

3 What care we for the midnight foe?
Of arrows winged with light?
Or pestilence's fatal touch,
Since Thou, Lord, art our might?

4 We need not fear the cruel hate
Of those we've done no wrong;
We look to Thee, our Advocate,
For weapons sure and strong.

5 In common Fatherhood above,
Thou reignest o'er the world;
The poor Thou liftest from the dust,
The proud are downward hurled.

LAMBETH (Schulthes)

Credited to Wilhelm Schulthes, 1871, in The Hymnal (1916). Reviews of his works in The Musical Times in 1871 include an "Ave Maria" for organ/piano and "O Salutaris" for soprano and choir. These pieces appear to be exceptionally rare and are not readily available for study. —Chris Fenner
