     1 A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet upon Shigionoth. 2 O LORD, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy.

     3 God came from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise. 4 And his brightness was as the light; he had horns coming out of his hand: and there was the hiding of his power. 5 Before him went the pestilence, and burning coals went forth at his feet. 6 He stood, and measured the earth: he beheld, and drove asunder the nations; and the everlasting mountains were scattered, the perpetual hills did bow: his ways are everlasting. 7 I saw the tents of Cushan in affliction: and the curtains of the land of Midian did tremble.(KJV)

1. Great King of nations, hear our prayer 
While at Thy feet we fall 
And humbly with united cry 
To Thee for mercy call. 
The guilt is ours, but grace is Thine; 
Oh, turn us not away, 
But hear us from Thy lofty throne 
And help us when we pray. 

2. Our fathers’ sins were manifold, 
And ours no less we own; 
Yet wondrously from age to age 
Thy goodness hath been shown. 
When dangers, like a stormy sea, 
Beset our country round, 
To Thee we looked, to Thee we cried, 
And help in Thee was found. 

3. With one consent we meekly bow 
Beneath Thy chast’ning hand 
And, pouring forth confession meet, 
Mourn with our mourning land. 
With pitying eye behold our need 
As thus we lift our prayer; 
Correct us with Thy judgments, Lord, 
Then let Thy mercy spare.
