Hymn/Song Information

The Lord to thy request attend and hear




The Lord to thy request attend,
and hear thee in distress:
The name of Jacob's God defend,
and grant thy arms success.


To aid thee from on high repair,
and strength from Zion give;
Remember all thy off'rings there,
thy sacrifice receive.


To compass thy own heart's desire,
thy counsels still direct;
Make kindly all events conspire
to bring them to effect.


To thy salvation, Lord, for aid
we cheerfully repair,
With banners in thy name displayed,
"The Lord accept thy pray'r."


Our hopes are fixed, that now the Lord
our sov'reign will defend;
From heav'n resistless aid afford,
and to his prayer attend.


Some trust in steeds for war designed,
on chariots some rely;
against them all we'll call to mind
the pow'r of God most high.


But, from their steeds and chariots thrown,
behold them through the plain,
Disordered, broke, and trampled down,
whilst firm our troops remain.


Still save us, Lord, and still proceed
our rightful cause to bless;
Hear, King of Heav'n, in times of need,
the pray'rs that we address.
