113. Strike the Cymbal

Strike the cymbal, roll the tymbal,
Let the trump of triumph sound;
Powerful slinging! Headlong bringing
Proud Goliath to the ground.
From the river, rejection quiver,
Judah’s hero takes the stone.
Spread your banners! Shout hosannas!
Battle is the Lord’s alone.

See advances, with songs and dances,
All the band of Israel’s daughters;
Catch the sound, ye hills and waters,
Spread your banners! Shout hosannas!
Battle is the Lord’s alone.

God of thunder, Rend assunder,
All the power Philistia boasts!
What are nations? What their stations?
Israel’s God is Lord of hosts.

What are haughty monarchs now?
Lo! before Jehovah bow!
Pride of princes, strength of kings,
To the dust Jehovah brings.
Praise him! praise him, exulting nations, praise,
Praise him! praise him, exulting nations, praise.
Hosanna, Hosanna, Hosanna.
