The Lord did on my side engage from




The Lord did on my side engage
from heav'n, his throne, my cause upheld;
And snatched me from the furious_rage,
of threat'ning waves that proudly swelled.


God his resistless pow'r employed,
my strongest foes' attempts to break;
Who else with ease had soon destroyed
the weak defense that I could make.


Their subtle rage had near prevailed,
when I distressed and friendless lay;
But still, when other succors failed,
God was my firm support and stay.


From dangers that enclosed me round,
he brought me forth and set me free;
For some just cause his goodness found,
that moved him to delight in me.


Because in me no guilt remains,
God does his gracious help extend;
My hands are free from bloody stains,
therefore the Lord is still my friend.


For I his judgments kept in sight,
in his just paths I always trod;
I never did his statutes slight,
nor loosely wandered from my God.


But still my soul, sincere and pure,
did e'en from darling sins refrain;
His favors, therefore, yet endure,
because my heart and hands are clean.
