1 "There is no God," so saith the fool
In his vain heart alone.
Ah, reckless seed and spurning rule!
None doeth good, not one.
2 The Lord looked down from Heaven, and saw
How man on earth abode;
And none were there who loved His law,
None sought the living God.
3 With thoughts corrupt, and conscience seared,
In hateful ways they ran;
In all the world no good appeared,
Nor any righteous man.
4 "How blinded are their hearts," He said,
"Who live in sin and shame!
My people they devour as bread;
They call not on My name."
5 In vain ye strive, O race abhorred,
In vain ye fret and rage;
For God is with His saints, the Lord
Amidst His heritage.
6 O when will our redemption spring
From Zion’s holy height?
O when to Salem will her king
Return with healing light?
7 When God shall hear His people’s voice,
And break their galling chain,
The face of Jacob will rejoice,
And Israel smile again.
