Hymn/Song Information

On us this heap of woe is fallen all




On us this heap of woe is fall'n,
all this we have endured;
Yet have not, Lord, renounced thy Name,
or faith to thee abjured.


But in thy righteous paths have kept
our hearts and steps with care;
Though thou hast broken all our strength,
and we almost despair.


Could we, forgetting thy great Name,
on other gods rely,
And not the Searcher of all hearts
the treach'rous crime descry?


Thou seest what suff'rings for thy sake
we every day sustain;
All slaughtered, or reserved like sheep
appointed to be slain.


Awake, arise; let seeming sleep
no longer thee detain;
Nor let us, Lord, who sue to thee,
for ever sue in vain.


O wherefore hidest thou thy face,
from our afflicted state>
Whose souls and bodies sink to earth,
with griefs oppressive weight.


Arise, O Lord, and timely haste
to our deliv'rance make;
Redeem us, Lord,-if not for ours,
yet for thy mercy's sake.
