Words: Brady and Tate, A New Version of the Psalms of David
1 The Lord to thy request attend, and hear thee in distress: The name of Jacob's God defend, and grant thy arms success. 2 To aid thee from on high repair, and strength from Zion give; 3 Remember all thy off'rings there, thy sacrifice receive. 4 To compass thy own heart's desire, thy counsels still direct; Make kindly all events conspire to bring them to effect. 5 To thy salvation, Lord, for aid we cheerfully repair, With banners in thy name displayed, "The Lord accept thy pray'r." 6 Our hopes are fixed, that now the Lord our sov'reign will defend; From heav'n resistless aid afford, and to his prayer attend. 7 Some trust in steeds for war designed, on chariots some rely; against them all we'll call to mind the pow'r of God most high. 8 But, from their steeds and chariots thrown, behold them through the plain, Disordered, broke, and trampled down, whilst firm our troops remain. 9 Still save us, Lord, and still proceed our rightful cause to bless; Hear, King of Heav'n, in times of need, the pray'rs that we address.
