Attend My Mournful Cry

Great source of boundless pow'r and grace,

Attend my mournful cry;

In the dark hour of deep distress,

To thee, to thee I fly.


Thou art my strength, my life, my stay,

Assist my feeble trust;

Drive these distressing fears away,

And raise me from the dust—up from the dust!


O let me call thy grace to mind,

And trust thy glorious name;

Good is the Lord, so wise, and kind,

Forever is the same.


Here let me rest, on thee depend, 

My God, my hope, my all;

Be thou my everlasting friend,

And I can never fall—Oh I can never fall!


Words: Anne Steele, 1717-1778.
