Why did the nations join to slay The Lord's




Why did the nations join to slay
The Lord's anointed Son?
Why did they cast his laws away,
|: And tread his gospel down? :|


The Lord, that sits above the skies,
Derides their rage below;
He speaks with vengeance in his eyes,
|: And strikes their spirits through. :|


I call him my Eternal Son,
And raise him from the dead;
I make my holy hill his throne,
|: And wide his kingdom spread. :|


Ask me, my Son, and then enjoy
The utmost heathen lands:
Thy rod of iron shall destroy
|: The rebel that withstands. :|


Be wise, ye rulers of the earth,
Obey th' anointed Lord,
Adore the King of heavenly birth,
|: And tremble at his word. :|


With humble love address his throne;
For if he frown, ye die:
Those are secure, and those alone,
|: Who on his grace rely. :|


---Alternative verses---


I call him my Beloved Son,
And raise him from the dead;
I make my holy hill his throne,
|: And wide his kingdom spread. :|
