The Lord to thy request attendPublished in 5 hymnals
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 Sion give;
3 Remember all thy Off'rings there;
thy Sacrifice receive.
4 To compass thy own Heart's Desire
thy counsels still direct;
May kindly all Events conspire
to bring them to Effect.
5 To thy Salvation, Lord, for Aid,
we chearfully repair,
With Banners in thy Name display'd;
"The Lord accept thy Pray'r."
6 Our Hopes are fix'd, that now the Lord
our Sov'reign will defend;
From Heav'n resistless Aid afford,
and to his Pray'r attend.
7 Some trust in Steeds for War design'd,
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, thro' the Plain,
Disorder'd, 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.
