While I my solemn will declared my




"While I my solemn will declared,
my chosen people, hear:
if thou, O Israel, to my words
wilt lend thy list'ning ear;


"Then shall no god besides myself
within thy coasts be found;
Nor shalt thou worship any god
of all the nations round.


"The Lord thy God am I, who thee
brought forth from Egypt's land:
Tis I that all thy just desires
supply with lib'ral hand."


But they, my chosen race, refused
to hearken to my voice;
Nor would rebellious Israel's sons
make me their happy choice.


So I, provoked, resigned them up
to every lust a prey,
And in their own perverse designs
permitted them to stray.


O that my people wisely would
my just commandments heed!
And Israel in my righteous ways
with pious care proceed!


Then should my heavy judgements fall
on all that them o9ppose,
And my avenging hand be turned
against their num'rous foes.


Their enemies and mine should all
before my footstool bend;
But as for them, their happy state
should never know an end.


All parts with plenty should abound;
with finest wheat their field:
The barren rocks, to please their taste,
should richest honey yield.
