Hymn/Song Information

Lord hear my prayer and to my cry thy




Lord hear my pray'r, and to my cry
thy wonted audience lend;
In thy accustomed faith and truth
a gracious answer send.


Nor at thy strict tribunal bring
thy servant to be tried;
For in thy sight no living man
can e'er be justified.


The spiteful foe pursues my life,
whose comforts all are fled;
He drives me into caves as dark
as mansions of the dead.


My spirit therefore is o'erwhelmed,
and sinks within my breast;
My mournful heart grows desolate,
with heavy woes oppressed.


I call to mind the days of old,
and wonders thou hast wrought:
My former dangers and escapes
employ my musing thought.


To thee my hands in humble pray'r
I fervently stretch out;
My soul for thy refreshment thirsts,
like land oppressed with drought,


Hear me with speed; my spirit fails;
thy face no longer hide,
Lest I become forlorn, like them
that in the grave reside.


Thy kindness early let me hear,
whose trust on thee depends;
Teach me the way where I should go;
my soul to thee ascends.


Do thou, O Lord, from all my foes
preserve and set me free;
A safe retreat against their rage
my soul implores from thee.


Thou art my God, thy righteous will
instruct me to obey;
Let thy good Spirit lead and keep
my soul in thy right way.


O! for the sake of thy great name,
revive my drooping heart;
For thy truth's sake, to me, distressed,
thy promised aid impart.


In pity to my suff'rings, Lord,
reduce my foes to shame;
Slay them that persecute a soul
devoted to thy name.
