Hymn/Song Information

For God they think no notice takes of




For God, they think, no notice takes
of their unrighteous deeds;
never minds the suff'ring poor,
nor their oppression heeds.


But thou, O Lord, at length arise;
stretch forth thy mighty arm;
And by the greatness of thy pow'r,
defend the poor from harm.


No longer let the wicked vaunt,
and proudly boasting say,
"Tush, God regards not what we do;
he never will repay."


But sure thou seest, and all their deeds
impartially dost try;
The orphan, therefore, and the poor
on thee for aid rely.


Defenseless let the wicked fall,
of all their strength bereft;
Confound, O God, their dark designs,
till no remains are left.


Assert thy just dominion, Lord,
which shall for ever stand;
Thou, who the heathen didst expel
from this thy chosen land.


Thou dost the humble suppliants hear
that to thy throne repair;
Thou first prepar'st their hearts to pray,
and then accept'st their pray'r.


Thou in thy righteous judgment weigh'st
the fatherless and poor;
That so the tyrants of the earth
may persecute no more.
