1 Are all the foes of Zion fools,
Who thus devour her saints?
Do they not know her Saviour rules,
And pities her complaints?
2 They shall be seiz'd with sad surprise;
For God's revenging arm
Shall crush the hand that dares arise,
To do his children harm.
3 In vain the sons of Satan boast
Of armies in array;
When God has first despis'd their host,
They fall an easy prey.
4 Oh for a word from Zion's King,
Her captives to restore!
The joyful saints thy praise shall sing,
And Isr'el weep no more.
