1 O God, Thou hast rejected us,
And hast afflicted sore;
Thou hast been angry, but in grace
O once again restore.
2 Lo, Thou hast turn and rent our land,
Thy judgments dread appall;
O hear her shattered strength before
She totter to her fall.
3 Through ways of trial and distress
Thy people Thou hast led.
A bitter cup Thou givest us
Of misery and dread.
4 A glorious banner Thou hast giv'n
To those who fear Thy Name,
A banner to display abroad,
And thus the truth proclaim.
5 That Thy beloved may be saved
And from their foes set free,
Help with the might of Thy right hand,
In mercy answer me.
6 God in His holiness hath said:
I will triumphant be,
All heathen lands I claim as Mine,
And they shall bow to Me.
7 Now, therefore, who will lead us on
Sin's strongholds to possess?
No longer cast us off, O God,
But give our hosts success.
8 Give Thou Thy help against the foe,
For help of man is vain;
Through God we shall do valiantly,
The victory He shall gain.
