Representative Text

1 God saved His people from distress
And led them through the wilderness;
Then mountains trembled in their place,
The heavens were bowed before His face.
With copious showers Thou didst assuage
The thirsting of Thy heritage;
Thy congregation dwelt secure;
Thou, God, art gracious to the poor.

2 The Lord sent forth His mighty word,
And shouts of victory were heard;
The women came, a mighty throng,
To join the glad triumphant song.
When God His chosen people led,
The kings and armies turned and fled;
The hosts of God victorious fought,
And home their spoils and trophies brought.

3 God's people rested, free from care,
In glorious peace and beauty fair;
Their mighty King did overthrow
The hostile kings like driven snow.
All mountains unto God belong,
But Zion's holy mountains strong
Above them all the Lord loves well,
And there He will forever dwell.

4 Great hosts to holy wars have trod,
The armies of the living God;
Among them He reveals His face,
The God of justice and of grace.
Thou hast ascended up on high
And captive led captivity;
They come with gifts who did rebel,
That with them God the Lord might dwell.

5 Blest be the Lord! for us He cares
And daily all our burden bears;
Our God is mighty, strong to save;
Jehovah frees us from the grave.
God's unrelenting enemies
No peace shall find in earth or seas;
His people shall triumphant go,
Victorious over every foe.

6 With glorious pomp our King and God
Has entered into His abode
With sacred minstrelsy and song,
While maidens with their timbrels throng.
Assemble ye before His face,
All ye that spring from Israel’s race;
Ye chosen tribes, with one accord
Come ye, and bless your God, the Lord.
