Hymn/Song Information

And like a den most dark he made his hid




And like a den most dark he made
his hid and secret place;
With waters black and airy clouds
encompassed he was.


At his bright presence did thick clouds
in haste away retire;
And in the stead thereof did come
hail-stones and coals of fire.


The fiery darts and thunderbolts
disperse them here and there;
And with his frequent lightnings he
doth put them in great fear.


When thou, O Lord, with great rebuke
thy anger dost declare,
The springs and the foundations of
the world discovered are.


And from above the Lord sent down
to fetch me from below,
And plucked me out of waters great,
that would me overflow:


And me delivered from my foes
that sought me to enthrall;
Yea, from such foes as were too strong
for me to deal withal.


They did prevent me evermore
in time of my great grief;
But yet the Lord is my defense,
my succor and relief.


He brought me forth in open place,
that so I might be free;
And kept me safe, because he had
a favor unto me.


According to my innocence,
so did he me regard;
And to the cleanness of my hands
he gave me my reward:


For that I walk-ed in his ways,
and in his paths have trod,
And not departed wickedly
from him that is my God.
