samuel_sebastian_wesley91 Kings 8:28,30 [from Solomon’s prayer]

28 Yet have thou respect unto the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O Lord my God, to hearken unto the cry and to the prayer, which thy servant prayeth before thee to day:

30 And hearken thou to the supplication of thy servant, and of thy people Israel, when they shall pray toward this place: and hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place: and when thou hearest, forgive.

Text of music:

O Lord my God, hear thou the pray’r thy servant prayeth, Have thou respect unto his prayer. Hear thou in heav’n thy dwelling place, And when thou hearest Lord, forgive.

38 So Zadok the priest, and Nathan the prophet, and Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, and the Cherethites, and the Pelethites, went down, and caused Solomon to ride upon king David’s mule, and brought him to Gihon.
