He heard my cry!

385 C. M.
Grateful acknowledgment.

I LOVE the Lord: he heard my cries,
   And pitied every groan:
   Long as I live, when troubles rise,
   I’ll hasten to his throne.

2 I love the Lord: he bow’d his ear,
   And chased my grief away:
   O let my heart no more despair,
   While I have breathe to pray.

3 The Lord beheld me sore distress’d;
   He bade my pains remove:
   Return, my soul, to God thy rest,
   For thou hast known his love.
                         Isaac Watts
