Psalter 43


Return to the Psalter Page

1. Jehovah hear thee in thy grief,
Our father’s God defend thee still,
Send from His holy place relief;
And strengthen thee from Zion’s hill.

2. Thy sacrifice may He regard,
And all thy off’rings bear in mind;
Thy heart’s desire to thee accord,
Fulfilling all thou hast designed.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. How vain their ev’ry confidence
Who on mere human help rely;
But we remember for defense
The Name of God, the Lord Most High.

6. 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.
