From "A book containing great variety of Anthems", second edition 1746. The book was published without subscribers but the list of booksellers given on the title page indicates Street's audience: in Barnsley, Chesterfield, Halifax, Leeds, Pontefract, Rotherham, Sheffield and Wakefield, or from the publisher in London, or from the author in Skipton (Almonbury in the first edition, 1730).

A reduction is provided for practice purposes, but should be eschewed in performance.
Lyrics: Psalm 102, vv. 1-3,11,12,15

Hear my prayer, O Lord: and let my cry come unto thee.
Hide not thy face from me in the time of my trouble:
incline thine ears unto me when I call:
O hear me, and that right soon.
For my days are consumed away like smoke.
My days are gone like a shadow: and I am withered like the grass.
But thou, O Lord, shalt endure for ever:
The heathen shall fear thy Name, O Lord:
and all the kings of the earth thy glory.
