Psalm 20 T.S.
Words: Sternhold and Hopkins, The Whole Book of Psalms Collected into English Metre
1 In trouble and adversity the Lord God hear thee still; The Majesty of Jacob's God defend thee from all ill;
2 And send thee from his holy place his help at ev'ry need; And so in Zion e'stablish thee, and make thee strong indeed.
3 Rememb'ring well the sacrifice that now in him is done; And so receive most graciously thy offerings each one.
4 According to thy heart's desire, the Lord grant unto thee, And all thy counsel and thy mind full well perform may he.
5 We will rejoice when thou us sav'st, and banners shall display Unto the Lord, who thy requests fulfillèd hath always.
6 The Lord will his Anointed save, I know well by his grace, And send him help by his right hand out of his holy place.
7 In chariots some put confidence, and some in horses trust: But we remember God our Lord, who keepeth promise just.
8 They all fall down, but we do rise and stand up steadfastly: O save and help us, Lord and King, when we to thee do cry.
