1 Help, Lord, the godly fail!
Help, Lord, the faithful flee!
And double hearts and tongues prevail
That taunt Thy saints and Thee.
2 With sophistries and lies
They cheat the simple soul,
Teach men Thy Gospel to despise,
And spurn Thy mild control.
3 But ah! there is a voice
In this dark growth of crimes,
That bids prophetic hearts rejoice
In hope of brighter times.
4 The Word these fools oppose
Can well their scoffs endure,
As silver from the furnace flows
More precious and more pure.
5 Their rage but sooner brings
The Lord to earth again;
And safe beneath almighty wings,
His Church shall rest till then.
