Hymn/Song Information

To my request and earnest cry attend O




To my request and earnest cry
attend, O gracious Lord;
Inspire my heart with heav'nly skill,
according to thy word.


Let my repeated pray'r at last
before thy throne appear;
According to thy plighted word,
for my relief draw near.


Then shall my grateful lips return
the tribute of thy praise,
When thou thy counsels hast revealed,
and taught me thy just ways.


My tongue the praises of thy word
shall thankfully resound,
Because thy promises are all
with truth and justice crowned.


Let thy almighty arm appear,
and bring me timely aid,
For I the laws thou hast ordained
my heart's free choice have made.


My soul has waited long to see
thy saving grace restored;
Nor comfort knew, but what thy laws,
thy heav'nly laws, afford.


Prolong my life, that I may sing
my great Restorer's praise;
Whose justice from the depth of woes
my fainting soul shall raise.


Like some lost sheep I've strayed, till I
despair my way to find,
Thou, therefore, Lord, thy servant seek,
who keeps thy laws in mind.
