Representative Text

1 In Judah the Almighty's known;
Almighty, there, by wonders shown;
His name in Jacob does excel:
His sanctuary in Salem stands:
The majesty that heav'n commands
In Sion condescends to dwell.

2 He brake the bow and arrows there,
The shield, the temper'd sword, and spear;
There slain the mighty army lay:
Whence Sion's fame thro' earth is spread,
Of greater glory, greater dread,
Than hills where robbers lodge their prey.

3 Their valiant chiefs, who came for spoil,
Themselves met there a shameful foil:
Securely down to sleep they lay;
But wak'd no more: their stoutest band
Ne'er lifted on resisting hand
'Gainst his that did their legions slay.

4 When Jacob's God began to frown,
Both horse and charioteers, o'erthrown,
Together slept in endless night:
When thou, whom earth and heav'n revere,
Dost once with wrathful look appear,
What mortal pow'r can stand thy sight?

5 Pronounc'd from heav'n, earth heard its doom
Grew hush'd with fear, when thou didst come,
The meek with justice to restore:
The wrath of man shall yield thee praise:
Its last attempts but serve to raise
The triumphs of almighty pow'r.

6 Vow to the Lord; ye nations, bring
Vow'd presents to th' eternal King:
Thus to his name due rev'rence pay,
Who proudest potentates can quell,
To earthly kings more terrible,
Than to their trembling subjects they.
