Representative Text

1 In vain opposing nations rage,
If God with us abide:
One word of his dissolves their strength,
And humbles all their pride.

2 His wisdom sees correction meet;
He gives the dread command,
And war its desolation spreads
Through ev'ry trembling land.

3 His purpose wrought, again he speaks,
And desolations cease;
War's loud alarms are heard no more,
And all the world is peace.

4 Mortals, adore his sovereign pow'r,
Nor dare provoke his rod:
Through all your various tribes be still,
And know that he is God.

John Patrick, a brother of Bishop Simon Patrick, was Prebendary of Peterborough, 1685; Precentor of Chichester, 1690; and preacher at the Charter-House, in the Chapel of which he was buried on his death, in 1695. His "Psalms of David, in Metre," were much used by Presbyterians and Independents until superseded by the compositions of Watts. ----Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872. Go to person page >
