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.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Had not the Lord, (may Isr'el say) Been pleas'd to interpose

Had not the Lord, (may Isr'el say) Been pleas'd to interpose

Published in 6 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Had not the Lord (may Isr'el say)
Been pleas'd to interpose;
Had he not then espous'd our cause,
When men against us rose;

2 Their wrath had swallow'd us alive,
And rag'd without controul:
Their spite and pride's united floods
Had quite o'erwhelm'd our soul.

3 But prais'd be our eternal Lord,
Who rescu'd us that day,
Nor to their savage jaws gave up
Our threat'ned lives a prey.

4 Our soul is like a bird escap'd
From out the fowler's net;
The snare is broke, their hopes are cross'd,
And we at freedom set.

5 Secure is his almighty name,
Our confidence remains,
Who, as he made both heav'n and earth,
Of both sole monarch reigns.
