We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Remember, Lord, what's come on us

Remember, Lord, what's come on us

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Remember Lord, what's come on us,
Mark our reproach and see.
2 Our lots to stranger's houses ours
To aliens turmed be.
3 We orphans are and fatherless,
Oar mothers widows are,
4 Oar water we for money drink,
Oar wood is sold us dear.

5 Cur necks in perfection are,
We toyl, no rest we have.
6 For fill of breath to Egypt we,
And hand to Ashur gave.
9 Cur fathers sinn'd, and are no more,
And born their sin have we.
8 Us servants rule; out of their hands
There's none to set us free.

9 For fear of life from desart's sword,
We got the bread we lack.
10 Because of dreadful dearth, our skin
is like an oven black.
11 They women forc'd in Sion, maids
In Juaah's cities: there
12 Princes were hang'd up by their hands,
Nor honoured elders were.

13 They took young men to grind, the child
Fell under wood also.
14 The elders ceased from the gate,
Young men their musick fro.
15 Our heart's joy ceased is, to moans
Our dances turned be.
16 The crown is fallen from our head,
Wo to us, sinn'd have we.

17 For this our heart is faint, for this
Our eyes are dim become.
18 For Sion's hill that waited is,
That foxes walk thereon.
18 Thy throne, Lord, is fr:m age to age.
Thou dost remain always.
20 Wherefore dost thou forget us aye,
Us leav'st for length of days.

21 Turn us to thee, and turn we shall,
Renew our days of old.
22 For wilt thou wholly cast us off?
Thy wrath for ever hold?
