CALL Jehovah thy salvation,
Rest beneath the Almighty's shade; In His secret habitation
Dwell, nor ever be dismay'd:
Thou shalt dread no hidden snare;
In eternal safeguard there.
From the sword at noon-day wasting,
God shall be thy sure defence:
When a thousand feel the blow;
Though ten thousand be laid low.
Thou on God hast set thy love,
He will shield thee from above:
Crown with life beyond the grave,
An abridgment of Angels' Song.*
O let us to His courts repair, And bow with adoration there; Down on our knees devoutly all Before the Lord our Maker fall.
XCVII. (1, 2. 12.)
EHOVAH reigns, let all the earth In His just government rejoice; Let all the isles, with sacred mirth,
In His applause unite their voice. Darkness and clouds of awful shade
His dazzling glory shroud in state; Justice and truth His guards are made, And, fix'd by His pavilion, wait. Rejoice, ye righteous, in the Lord:
Memorials of His holiness Deep in your faithful breasts record, And with your thankful tongues confess.
