Hymn/Song Information

Now Israel may say and that in truth




Now Israel may say, and that in truth,
If that the Lord had not
our right maintained,
If that the Lord had not with us remained,
When cruel men against us rose to strive,
We surely had been swallowed up alive.


Yea, when their wrath against us
fiercely rose,
The swelling tide had oer us
spread its wave,
The raging stream
had then become our grave,
The surging flood, in proudly swelling roll,
Most surely then
had overwhelmed our soul.


Blest be the Lord,
Who made us not their prey;
As from the snare a bird escapeth free,
Their net is rent and so escaped are we;
Our only help is in Gods holy Name,
Who made the earth
and all the heavenly frame.
