Who shall against the Lord prevail

Who shall against the Lord prevail

Full Text

1 Who shall against the Lord prevail?
Or who presume to say,
"That righteous law, which God proclaims,
I dare to disobey?"

2 Ten thousand actions everywhere
Th' impious language speak:
Yet power omnipotent stands by,
Nor do its thunders break.

3 But oh, the dreadful day draws near,
When God's avenging hand
Shall show, if feeble mortals' breath,
Or God's own word, shall stand.

4 My soul, with rev'rence prostrate fall,
Before the Voice divine;
And all thine interest and thy powers
To His command resign.

5 Let the vain of sons of Belial boast,
Their tongues and thoughts are free;
My noblest liberty I own,
When subject most to Thee.
