Hymn/Song Information

Defend me Lord from shame for still I

Defend me, Lord, from shame,
for still I trust in thee;
As just and righteous is thy Name,
from danger set me free.

Bow down thy gracious ear,
and speedy succor send;
Do thou my steadfast rock appear,
to shelter and defend.

Since thou, when foes oppress,
my rock and fortress art,
To guide me forth from this distress
thy wonted help impart.

Release me from the snare
which they have closely laid,
Since I, O God my strength, repair
to thee alone for aid.

To thee, the God of truth,
my life, and all that's mine,
(For thou preserv'dst me from my youth,)
I willingly, resign.

All vain designs I hate,
of those that trust in lies;
And still my soul in every state
to God for succor flies.

How great thy mercies are
To such as fear thy name!
Which thou, for those that trust thy care
Dost to the world proclaim

Ye that on God rely,
Courageously proceed;
For he will yet your hearts supply
With strength in time of need.
