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.

Saints chastised, and Sinners destroyed; or Instructive Affilctions

Hymnal: Doctor Watts's imitation of the Psalms of David, to which is added a collection of hymns; the whole applied to the state of the Christian Church in general (3rd ed.) #165a (1786) Topics: Afflicted Saints happy; Afflictions instruction by them; Afflictions sanctified; Afflictions of saints and sinners different; Instructive afflictions; Afflicted Saints happy; Sanctified afflictions; Afflictions instruction by them; Afflictions sanctified; Afflictions of saints and sinners different; Instructive afflictions; Sanctified afflictions First Line: O God! to whom revenge belongs Lyrics: 1 O God! to whom revenge belongs, Proclaim thy wrath aloud; Let sovereign power redress our wrongs, Let justice smite the proud. 2 They say, "The Lord nor sees nor hears;" When will the vain be wise? Can he be deaf, who form'd their ears? Or blind, who made their eyes? 3 He knows their impious thoughts are vain, And they shall feel his power; His wrath shall pierce their souls with pain In some surprising hour. 4 But if thy saints deserve rebuke, Thou hast a gentler rod; Thy providence, thy sacred book Shall make them know their God. 5 Blest is the man thy hands chastise, And to his duty draw; Thy scourges make thy children wise When they forget thy law. 6 But God will ne’er cast off his saints, Nor his own promise break; He pardons his inheritance For their Redeemer’s sake.

My life had now in silence dwelt, My soul amongst the dead. 3 Alas! my sliding feet! I cry'd, Thy promise bore me up Thy grace stood constant by my side, And rais'd my sinking hope. 4 While multitudes of mournful thoughts Within my bosom roll, Thy boundless love forgives my faults, Thy comforts cheer my soul. 5 Powers of iniquity may rise, And frame pernicious laws; But God my refuge rules the skies, He will defend my cause. 6 Let malice vent her rage aloud, Let bold blasphemers scoff; The Lord our God shall judge the proud, And cut the sinners off.

Psalm 125

Author: Isaac Watts Hymnal: Psalms and Hymns of Isaac Watts, The #Ps.291 (1806) Meter: 6.6.8.6 Topics: Grace tried by afflictions; Trial of our graces by afflictions; Afflictions moderated; Saints afflictions moderated First Line: Firm and unmoved are they Lyrics: Firm and unmoved are they That rest their souls on God; Firm as the mount where David dwelt, Or where the ark abode. As mountains stood to guard The city's sacred ground, So God and his almighty love Embrace his saints around. What though the Father's rod Drop a chastising stroke, Yet, lest it wound their souls too deep, Its fury shall be broke. Deal gently, Lord, with those Whose faith and pious fear, Whose hope, and love, and every grace, Proclaim their hearts sincere. Nor shall the tyrant's rage Too long oppress the saint; The God of Isr'el will support His children lest they faint. But if our slavish fear Will choose the road to hell, We must expect our portion there, Where bolder sinners dwell. Scripture: Psalm 125 Languages: English

Psalm 125

Author: Isaac Watts Hymnal: Psalms and Hymns of Isaac Watts, The #Ps.290 (1806) Meter: 8.6.8.6 Topics: Grace tried by afflictions; Trial of our graces by afflictions; Afflictions moderated; Saints afflictions moderated First Line: Unshaken as the sacred hill Lyrics: Unshaken as the sacred hill, And firm as mountains be, Firm as a rock the soul shall rest That leans, O Lord, on thee. Not walls nor hills could guard so well Old Salem's happy ground, As those eternal arms of love That every saint surround. While tyrants are a smarting scourge To drive them near to God, Divine compassion does allay The fury of the rod. Deal gently, Lord, with souls sincere, And lead them safely on To the bright gates of Paradise, Where Christ their Lord is gone. But if we trace those crooked ways That the old serpent drew, The wrath that drove him first to hell Shall smite his followers too. Scripture: Psalm 125 Languages: English
