The heathen hosts, O God!

Hymnal: The Psalms of David #79 (1789) Hymnal Title: The Psalms of David Lyrics: 1 The heathen hosts, O God! Have thy possession seiz'd; Thy sacredhHouse defil'd, Thy holy city raz'd. 2 The bodies of thy saints, Abroad unburied lay; Their flesh expos'd to beasts, Or rav'nous birds a prey. 3 Their blood, like water, was Around Jerus'lem shed; And none were left to pay The duties to the dead; 4 The foe our small remains With loud reproaches wound; And are made the sport Of all the nations round. 5 How long wilt thou be wroth? Lord, must we ever mourn? And shall thy jealous rage, Like fire for ever burn? 6 On lands that know not thee, Thy heavy vengeance show'r; Those kingdoms let it crush, That have not own'd thy pow'r. 7 Their hungry jaws have prey'd On Jacob's chosen race; And to a desert turn'd, Their fruitful dwelling place. 8 O think not on our sins, But speedily prevent The ruin of thy saints, Almost with sorrow spent. 9 Thy help, O God, impart And free our souls from blame, So shall thy wond'rous love Exalt thy glorious name. 10 Let infidels that say, "Where is the God they boast"? In vengeance, for thy saints, Perceive thee to their cost. 11 Lord, hear the pris'ner's moans! Thy saving pow'r extend; Preserve them doom'd to die, From their untimely end! 12 Those who blaspheme thy name, Do thou, O God, destroy; Against the nations round, Resistless pow'r employ. 13 As they have us opprest; So shall they be repaid, With sorrows sev'n times more Than what on us they laid. 14 Thus we thy humble flock, Shall ever praise thy name; And our unwearied thanks, From age to age proclaim.

The heathen hosts, O God

Hymnal: The Psalms of David #LXXIX (1767) Hymnal Title: The Psalms of David Lyrics: 1 The Heathen Hosts, O GOD! Have thy Possession seiz'd; Thy sacred House defil'd, Thy holy City raz'd. The Bodies of thy Saints, Abroad unburied lay; Their Flesh expos'd to Beasts, Or rav'nous Birds a Prey. 2 Their Blood, like Water, was Around Jerus'lem shed; And none were left to pay The Duties to the Dead: The Foe our small Remains With loud Reproaches wound; And are made the Sport Of all the Nations round. 3 How long wilt thou be wrathj? LORD, must we ever mourn? And shall thy jealous Rage, Like Fire for ever burn? Our Lands that know not thee, Thy heavy Vengeance show'r; Those Kingdoms let it crush, That have not own'd thy Pow'r. 4 Their hungry Jaws have prey'd On Jacob's chosen Race; And to a Desart turn'd, Their fruitful Dwelling Place. O think not on our Sins, But speedily prevent The Ruin of thy Saints, Almost with Sorrow spent. 5 Thy Help, O GOD, impart And free our Souls from Blame, So shall thy wond'rous Love Exalt thy glorious Name. Let Infidels that say, "Where is the GOD they boast"? In Vengeance, for thy Saints, Perceive thee to their Cost. 6 LORD, hear the Pris'ner's Moans! Thy saving Pow'r extend; Preserve them, doom'd to die, From their untimely End! Those who blaspheme thy Name, Do thou, O GOD, destroy; Against the Nations round, Resistless Pow'r employ. 7 For they have us opprest; Then let them be repaid, With Sorrows sev'n Times more Than what on us they laid. So we thy humble Flock, Shall ever praise thy Name; And our unwearied Thanks, From Age to Age proclaim.
