Hymn/Song Information

But let such vengeance come to them as




But let such vengeance come to them,
as once to Midian came;
To Jabin and proud Sisera,
at Kishon's fatal stream.


When thy right hand their num'rous hosts
near Endor did confound;
And left their carcases for dung
to feed the hungry ground.


Let all their mighty men the fate
of Zeb and Oreb share;
As Zeba and Zalmuuna, so
let all their princes fare.


Who, with the same design inspired,
thus vainly boasting spake,
"In firm possession for ourselves '
let us God's houses take."


To ruin let them haste, like wheels
which downwards swiftly move;
Like chaff before the winds, let all
their scattered forces prove.


As flames consume dry wood or heath
that on parched mountains grows,
So let thy fierce pursuing wrath
with terror strike thy foes.


Lord, shroud their faces with disgrace,
that they may own thy Name;
Or them confound, whose hardened hearts
thy gentler means disclaim.


So shall the wond'ring world confess,
that thou, who claim'st alone
Jehovah's Name, o'er all the earth
hast raised thy lofty throne.
