O God, who hast our troops dispersedTune: OLD HUNDREDTH
Published in 5 hymnals
1 O GOD, who hast our Troops disperst,
Forsaking those who'd left thee first;
As we thy just Displeasure mourn,
To us in Mercy, LORD, return.
2 Our Strength, that firm as Earth did stand,
Is rent by thy avenging Hand;
O heal the Breaches thou hast made;
We shake, we fall, without thy Aid.
3 Our Folly's sad Effects we feel,
For drunk, with Discord's Cup, we reel;
But now for them who thee rever'd,
Thou hast thy Truth's bright Banner rear'd.
4 Let thy right Hand thy Saints protect,
LORD, hear the Pray'rs that we direct.
The holy GOD has spoke, and I
O'erjoy'd on his firm Word rely.
5 "To thee in Portions I'll divide,
"Fair Sichem's Soil, Samaria's Pride,
"To Sichem, Succoth next I'll join,
"And measure out her Vale by Line.
6 "Manasseh, Gilead, both subscribe,
"To my Commands, with Ephraim's Tribe:
"Ephraim by Arms supports my Cause,
"And Judah by religious Laws.
7 "Moab my Slave and Drudge shall be,
"Nor Edom from my Yoke get free;
"Proud Palestine's imperious State,
"Shall humbly on our Triumph wait."
8 But who shall quell these mighty Pow'rs,
And clear my Way to Edom's Tow'rs?
Or thro' her guarded Frontiers tread,
The Path that doth to Conquest lead?
9 Ev'n thou, O GOD, who hast dispers'd
Our Troops, for we forsook thee first;
Those, whom thou didst om Wrath forsake,
Appear'd, thou wilt victorious make.
10 Do thou our fainting Cause sustain,
For human Succorus are but vain.
Fresh Strength and Courage GOD bestows;
'Tis he treads down our proudest Foes.
