Hymn/Song Information

Tis God that girds my armour on and all




'Tis God that girds my armor on,
and all my just designs fulfils;
Through him my feet can swiftly run,
and nimbly climb the steepest hills.


Lessons of war from him I take,
and manly weapons learn to wield;
Strong bows of steel with ease to break,
forced by my stronger arms to yield,


The buckler of his saving health
protects me from assaulting foes;
His hand sustains me still, my wealth
and greatness from his bounty flows.


My goings he enlarged abroad,
till then to narrow paths confined;
And, when in slipp'ry ways I trod,
the method of my steps designed.


Through him I num'rous hosts defeat,
and flying squadrons captive take;
Nor from my fierce pursuit retreat,
till I a final conquest make.


Covered with wounds, in vain they try
their vanquished heads again to rear;
Spite of their boasted strength they lie
beneath my feet, and grovel there.


God, when fresh armies take the field,
recruits my strength, my courage warms;
He makes my strong opposers yield,
subdued by my prevailing arms.


Through him the necks of prostrate foes
my conqu'ring feet in triumph press;
Aided by him, I root out those
who hate and envy my success.


With loud complaints all friends they tried,
but none was able to defend;
At length to God for help they cried,
but God would no assistance lend.


Like flying dust which winds pursue,
their broken troops I scattered round,
Their slaughtered bodies forth I threw,
like loathsome dirt that clogs the ground.
