And let
Amidst the Church with cheerful Voice

His later Wonders thew.
The Jews, the People of his Grace,

Shall their REDEEMER sing;
And Gentile Nations join the Praise,

While Zion owns her KING.

2 The LORD takes Pleasure in the Just,

Whom Sinners treat with Scorn:
The Meek that lie defpis'd in Dust

Salvation shall adorn.
Saints should be joyful in their KING

E'en on a dying Bed;
And like the Souls in Glory sing,

For God shall raise the Dead.

3 Then his high Praise fhall fill their Tongue,

Their Hands Niall wield the Sword;
And Vengeance shall attend their Songs,

The Vengeance of the LORD.
When CHRIST his Judgment-Seat ascends,

And bids the World appear,
Thrones are prepar'd for all his Friends

Who humbly lov'd Him here.

4. Then shall they rule with Iron-Rod

Nations that dar'd rebel :
And join the Sentence of their GOD,

On Tyrants doom'd to Hell,

Sweetest Music of the Heart.
