O God, thou hast rejected us

O God, thou hast rejected us

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 O God thou hast rejected us
and scattered us abroad:
Thou hast displeased been with us,
Return to us, O God.
2 The land to tremble thou hast caus'd,
Thou it asunder brake:
Do thou the breaches of it heal,
For it doth moving shake.

3 Thou hast thy people caus'd to see
Things that are hard to bear:
And thou hast caused them to drink
The wine of trembling fear.
4 But thou bestowed hast on them,
A banner who thee fear;
That it on high before the truth
Displayed may appear, Selah.

5 That those that thy beloved are
May be deliver'd free:
O do thou save with thy right hand,
And answer give to me.
6 God in his holiness hath spoke,
Therein rejoyce I still;
Shechem divide, and mete the vale
Of Sucoth out I will.

7 To me doth Gilead appertain,
Manasseh mine besides;
Ephraim the strength is of my head,
Judah my law prescribes.
8 Moab my washpot is, I will
O'er Edom cast my shoe:
O Palestine, because of me,
Be thou triumphant too.

9 O who is it that will me bring
Into the city strong?
And into Edom who is he
That will lead me along?
10 Is it not thou, O God, who did
Us cast away thee fro;
And thou, O God, who wouldest not
Forth with our armies go?

11 From trouble give unto us help,
For help of man is vain;
Through God we'll do great acts, he shall
Our foes tread with disdain.
