Our factious tribes at strife till now




Our factious tribes, at strife till now,
by God's appointment me obey;
The heathen to my scepter bow,
and foreign nations own my sway.


Remotest realms their homage send,
when my successful name they hear;
Strangers for my commands attend,
charmed with respect, or awed by fear.


All to my summons tamely yield,
or soon in battle are dismayed;
For stronger holds they quit the field,
and still in strongest holds afraid.


Let the eternal Lord be praised,
the rock on whose defense I rest;
O'er highest heav'ns his name be raised,
who me with his salvation blest.


'Tis God that still supports my right,
his just revenge my foes pursues;
'Tis he that with resistless might
fierce nations to my yoke subdues.


My universal safeguard he!
from whom my lasting honors flow;
He made me great, and set me free
from my remorseless bloody foe.


Therefore to celebrate his fame.
my grateful voice to heav'n I'll raise;
And nations, strangers to his name,
shall thus be taught to sing his praise.


"God to his king deliv'rance sends,
shows his anointed signal grace;
"His mercy evermore extends
to David and his promised race."
