Hymn/Song Information

Hold not thy peace O Lord our God no




Hold not thy peace, O Lord our God,
no longer silent be;
Nor with consenting quiet looks
our ruin calmly see.


For 1o! the tumults of thy foes
o'er all the land are spread;
And those who hate thy saints and thee
lift up their threat'ning head.


Against thy zealous people, Lord,
they craftily combine;
And to destroy thy chosen saints
have laid their close design.


"Come, let us cut them off, say they,
their nation quite deface;
"That no remembrance may remain
of Israel's hated race."


Thus they against thy people's peace
consult with one consent;
And diff'ring nations, jointly leagued,
their common malice vent.


The Ishmaelites, that dwell in tents,
with warlike Edom joined,
And Moab's sons our ruin vow,
with Hagar's race combined.


Proud Ammon's offspring, Gebal too,
with Amalek conspire;
The lords of Palestine, and all
the wealthy sons of Tyre.


All these the strong Assyrian king
their firm ally have got;
Who with a pow'rful army aids
th' incestuous race of Lot.
