E. Osler 

O God, the help of all thy saints,
Our hope in time of ill:

Psalm x.

 

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.

Why should the men of pride and sin
Thy truth and power defy;
And boast, as if their evil way
Were hidden from thine eye?

Lord, thou hast seen; arise and save;
To thee our cause we bring;
Reign thou in righteousness and power,
For thou alone art King.

All our desires to thee are known;
Thy help is ever near;
O first prepare our hearts to pray,
And then accept our prayer!
