St. Denio

May the LORD answer you when you cry in distress;

May Jacob's God keep you, whose name you confess. 

2 May God send assistance from his holy place, 

and grant you from Zion support by his grace. 

3 May God keep in mind every sacrifice made; 

Accept on the altar your offerings laid.

4 And may he fulfill the desire of your heart - 

Success to each one of your plans to impart. 

5 With joy we will shout when your victory's won; 

We'll lift up our banners in God's name alone. 

And so may the Lord hear your earnest request, 

And answer your prayers as seems to him best." 

6 Now truly I know that the LORD from above

Protects his anointed in covenant love; 

From heav'n in his holiness God hears his cry, 

And saves by the pow'r of his right hand on high. 

7 In horses or chariots some trust for defence, 

But the name of the LORD is our strong confidence. 

8 They're brought to their knees, while in strength we arise. 

9 O LORD, save the king! Hear and answer our cries!
