MANNA | Bible Passage
JOHN BACCHUS DYKES, 1823-1876
1 LORD, hear my voice, my prayer attend;
From earth's remotest bound I send
My supplicating cry.
When troubles great o'erwhelm my breast,
Then lead me on the Rock to rest
That higher is than I.
2 In thee my soul has shelter found,
And thou hast been from foes around
The tower of my defence.
My home shall thy pavilion be;
To covert of thy wings I'll flee,
And find deliverance.
3 For thou, O Lord, my vows hast heard;
On me the heritage conferred
Of those that fear thy name.
Long life thou to the king wilt give;
Through generations he shall live,
From age to age the same.
4 Before the Lord shall he abide;
O do thou truth and grace provide
To guard him in the way.
So I thy praises will make known,
And humbly bending at thy throne,
My vows will daily pay.
1 ¬∂ Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.
4 I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.
5 ¬∂ For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name.
6 Thou wilt prolong the king's life: and his years as many generations.
7 He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him.
8 So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.
