Hymn/Song Information

Preserve me Lord in time of need




Preserve me, Lord, in time of need,
For succor to thy throne I flee,
But have no merits there to plead:
My goodness cannot reach to thee.


Oft have my heart
and tongue confessed
How empty and how poor I am;
My praise can never
make thee blessed,
Nor add new glories to thy name.


Yet, Lord, thy saints on earth may reap
Some profit by the good we do;
These are the company I keep,
These are the choicest friends I know.


Let others choose the sons of mirth
To give a relish to their wine;
I love the men of heav'nly birth,
Whose thoughts
and language are divine.

Yet, Lord, thy saints on earth may reap
Some profit by the good I do;
These are the company I keep,
These are the choicest friends I know.


Let others choose the sons of mirth
To give their hours to noise and wine;
I love the men of heavenly birth,
Whose thoughts and language are divine.
