Hymn/Song Information

My God thine ear indulgent bend Nor turn thy face




My God, thine ear indulgent bend,
Nor turn thy face away:
From heaven my earnest cries attend,
While in distress I pray.


My heart is pained; the shades of death
Their terrors round me spread;
While fearful tremblings seize my breath,
And horrors whelm my head.


Thus from within the bursting sigh
Mounts to the throne above-
O that my soul on wings could fly,
And emulate the dove!


Swift I'd escape; I'd flee afar,
Some secret place to find,
Hid from the world's wide scene of care,
And rest my troubled mind.


I'd stretch my everlasting flight,
And bid the world farewell,
From sin and strife to realms of light,
Where, peace and quiet dwell.
