1 Lord God of Hosts, in mercy
My supplication hear;
Almighty and all-faithful,
Our fathers' God, give ear;
Our shield and great defender,
No longer hide Thy face,
But look upon Thy servant,
Anointed by Thy grace.

2 In Thy blest courts to worship,
My God, a single day
Is better than a thousand
While far from Thee I stray;
Tho' in a lowly station,
the service of my Lord
I choose above all pleasures
That sinful ways afford.

3 A sun and shield forever
Is God, the Lord Most High;
To those who walk uprightly
No good will He deny;
His saints, His grace receiving,
Shall soon His glory see;
O Lord of Hosts, most blessed
Are they that trust in Thee.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
