IV. “O help us, Lord, each hour of need”
By Henry Hart Milman (1791–1868)
 
O HELP us, Lord, each hour of need,
  Thy heavenly succour give;
Help us in thought and word and deed,
  Each hour, on earth, we live.
 
O help us, when our spirits bleed        5
  With contrite anguish sore;
And when our hearts are cold and dead,
  O help us, Lord, the more.
 
O help us, through the prayer of faith,
  More firmly to believe;        10
For still the more Thy servant hath,
  The more shall he receive.
 
O help us, Saviour, from on high,
  We know no help but Thee;
O help us so to live and die,        15
  As Thine in heaven to be.
