O Lord, give ear when with my voice
I cry aloud to Thee;
Have mercy also, I entreat,
Give answer unto me.

When Thou didst say, Seek ye My face,
My answering heart replied,
Thy face, Jehovah, will I seek
Above all else beside.

Hide not Thy face, nor in Thy wrath
Thy servant put away;
Thou hast a helper been to me
In every troublous day.

O God, my Savior, leave me not;
Though parents should forsake,
The Lord, within His arms of love,
His child will surely take.
