Lord – Help Thine Own

“Lord, help thine own, we humbly cry,

For evil doth abound,

And sin and vanity and pride

On every side are found.


Look down upon the sore distressed,

Who faint upon their way;

Comfort the needy and oppressed,

By evil men held prey.


Speak thou a word of hope and cheer

From thine own loving heart,

And by thy presence ever near

New strength to them impart.”

Avis B. Christiansen

The Psalms in Verse – Psalm 12
