Oh help us Lord! Each hour of need
O help us Lord! Each hour of need. Henry Hart Milman* (1791-1868).
First published in Reginald Heber*’s Hymns written and adapted to the Weekly Church Service of the Year (1827), set for the Second Sunday in Lent. It had six stanzas:
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, 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;For still, the more the servant hath, The more shall he receive.
If strangers to Thy fold we call,
Imploring at Thy feet
