1 In Judah the Almighty's known
(Almighty, there, by Wonders shown,)
His Name is Jacob does excell,
His Sanctuary in Salem stands:
The Majesty that Heav'n commands,
In Sion condescends to dwell.

2 He brake the Bow and Arrows there,
The Shield, the temper'd Sword, and Spear;
There slain the mighty Army lay:
Whence Sion's Fame thro' Earth is spread,
Of greater Glory, greater Dread,
than Hills where Robbers lodge their Prey.

3 Their valiant Chiefs, who came for Spoil,
Themselves met there a shameful Foil:
Securely down to sleep they lay;
But wak'd no more; their stoutest Band
Ne'er lifted on resisting Hand,
Against his, who their Hosts did slay.

4 When Jacob's GOD began to frown,
Both Horse and Charioteers, o'erthrown,
Together slept in endless Night.
When thou, whom Earth and Heaven revere,
Dost once with wrathful Look appear,
What mortal Pow'r can stand thy Sight?

5 Pronounc'd from Heav'n, Earth heard its Doom;
Grew hush'd with Fear when Thou didst come,
The Meek with Justice to restore.
The Wrath of Man shall yield thee Praise;
Its last Attempts but serve to raise,
The Triumphs of Almighty Pow'r.

6 Now to the LORD, ye Nations, bring
Vow'd Presents to th'eternal King:
Thus to His Name due Rev'rence pay,
Who proudest Potentates can quell,
To earthly Kings more terrible,
Than to their trembling Subjects they.
