Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

In Judah, God's most clearly known

In Judah, God's most clearly known

Author: John Barnard
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. In Judah's God's most clearly known;
In Israel, great is his renown.
2. His sacred tent's in Salem placed;
And Sion's with his dwelling graced.
3. Thou break'st the arrow, bow, and shield,
The sword, and battle in the Field.
4. Thy glory shines with brighter ray,
Excelling far the mounts of prey.

5. The stout of heart are wholly spoiled;
Death, in their sleep, has them beguiled;
And none of all their braved bands,
Could find the vigor of their hands.
6. When Jacob's God, in anger, frowned,
Chariot, and horse, in geap were drowned.
7. Thou, thou alone, demand'st our fear;
Who can thine angry presence bear?

8. Thou mad'st, from heaven, thy judgments heard;
The earth stood still, and greatly feared.
9. When God, to save the meek arose,
And scattered judgments on his foes.
10. Man's wrath shall praises to thee gain;
The residue thou shalt restrain.
11. Vow then, and pay, to God, your King;
Let all fear him, and presents bring.

12. From princes he cuts off their breath,
By an avenging stroke of death;
He, to the mighty kings on Earth,
Dispenseth terrors, in his wrath.
