1. O God, the help of all Thy saints
Our hope in time of ill
We trust Thee, though Thy face be-hid
And seek Thy presence still.
2. Why should the men of pride and sin
Thy truth and pow‘r defy
And boast, as if their evil way
Were hidden from Thine eye?
3. Lord, Thou hast seen, arise and save
To Thee our cause we bring
Reign Thou in righteousness and pow’r
For Thou alone art King.
4. All our desires to Thee are known
Thine help is ever near
O first prepare our hearts to pray
And then accept our pray’r. Amen
