Jehovah hear thee in thy grief,
our fathers’ God defend thee still,
send from His holy place relief,
and strengthen thee from Zion’s hill.
Thy sacrifice may He regard,
and all thine off’rings bear in mind;
thy heart’s desire to thee accord,
fulfilling all thou hast designed.
In thy salvation we rejoice,
and in God’s name our banners raise;
Jehovah hearken to thy voice,
fulfill thy prayers through all thy days.
Salvation will the LORD command,
and His anointed will defend;
yea, with the strength of His right hand
from heav’n He will an answer send.
How vain their every confidence
who on mere human help rely;
but we remember for defense
the name of God, the LORD Most High.
Now we arise and upright stand,
while they, subdued and helpless fall;
Jehovah, save us by Thy hand,
the King give answer when we call.
—The Psalter, 1912
