Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

The Lord attend to thy request

The Lord attend to thy request

Author: John Barnard
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. The Lord attend to thy request,
And hear thee when thou art distressed;
The name of Jacob's God defend,
And be to thee a constant friend.
2. Thee help, and succor, with his grace,
From his most holy dwelling place;
Thee strengthen, and support thy throne,
From Zion, seat of his renown.

3. Thy freewill offerings bear in mind;
And to thy sacrifice be kind.
4. Crown thy heart's wishes with success;
And all thy wholesome counsels bless.

5. In thy salvation we'll rejoice;
Our banners, with triumphant voice,
In our God's name, we'll high erect;
The Lord all thy desires respect.
6. Now know I, that the God we serve,
Will his anointed safe preserve;
From heaven he'll hear, and help command,
With saving strength of his right hand.

7. Some trust in chariots, fetched from far,
And some in horses, trained for war;
But we our God will call to mind,
In whom alone we safety find.
8. They broke, dispersed, are forced to yield;
While we, in triumph, keep the field.
9. Save, Lord, and let our heavenly king
Hear, when we call, or praises sing.
