Great God, Attend (Duke Street) 264t

Tune: John Hatton, 1793
Lyrics: Joel Barlow, 1785
Meter: Long Meter (8,8,8,8)
Great God! attend to my complaint,
Nor let my drooping spirit faint;
When foes in secret spread the snare,
Let my salvation be Thy care.

Shield me without and guard within,
From treachírous foes and deadly sin;
May envy, lust and pride depart,
And heavínly grace expand my heart.
