1 Maker, and sov’reign Lord
Of heav’n, and earth, and seas!
Thy providence confirms thy Word,
And answers thy decrees.
2 Why did the Gentiles rage,
And Jews, with one accord,
Bend all their counsels to destroy
Th’ anointed of the Lord?
3 Rulers and kings agree
To form a vain design;
Against the Lord their pow'rs unite,
Against his Christ they join.
4 The Lord derides their rage,
And will support his throne;
He, that hath rais'd him from the dead
Hath own'd him for his Son.
5 He asks, and God bestows
A large inheritance.
Far as the earth's remotest ends
His kingdom shall advance.
