Hymn/Song Information

Thou madest my teeming mother's womb




Thou mad'st my teeming mother's womb
a living offspring bear;
When but a suckling at the breast
I was thy early care.


Thou, guardian-like, didst shield from wrongs
my helpless infant days;
And since hast been my God and guide
through life's bewildered ways.


Withdraw not then so far from me,
when trouble is so nigh;
O send me help! thy help, on which
I only can rely.


High pampered bulls, a frowning herd,
from Basan's forest met,
With strength proportioned to their rage,
have me around beset.


They gape on me, and ev'ry mouth
a yawning grave appears;
The desert lion's savage roar
less dreadful is than theirs.
