Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

158. Defeat and Triumphant Hope

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.
