20Psalm 20CM
THE Lord will hear when troubles come,
   When trials and griefs oppress;
Our covenant God will never fail
    His people in distress.
2  By prayer He’ll strengthen faith and love
    To bless the means of grace,
And by the Word our waiting souls
    Shall feel His strong embrace.
3  He’ll grant us all our soul’s desire
    To trust Him in that hour;
Infusing every needed aid
    Of wisdom, help and power.
4  Our grateful hearts shall not forget
    The details of His love;
How all our pleas were surely met
    By rescue from above.
5  Thus proved, our infant faith shall grow
    Into conviction sure;
And leaning less on human aid,
    We’ll trust Him all the more.
