Hymn/Song Information

The God that girdeth me with strength is

The God that girdeth me with strength,
is he that I do mean;
That all the ways wherein I walk,
did evermore keep clean:

That made my feet like to the harts'
in swiftness of my pace,
And for my safety brought me forth
into an open place.

He did in order put my hands
in battle for to fight;
To break in sunder bars of brass
he gave my arms the might.

Thou teachest me thy saving health,
thy right hand is my tow'r;
Thy love and gentleness also
doth still increase my pow'r.

And under me thou makest plain
the way where I should go;
So that my feet shall never slip,
nor wander to and fro:

And fiercely I pursue and take
my foes that me annoyed,
And from the field do not return
till they be all destroyed.

So I suppress and wound my foes,
that they can rise no more;
For underneath my feet they fail,
I wound them all so sore.

For thou hast girded me with strength
unto the battle, and
Thou wilt throw down my enemies
that do against me stand.

Lord, thou hast given me the necks
of all my enemies;
That so I might destroy all those
that up against me rise.

They called for help, but none gave ear,
nor came to their relief;
Yea, to the Lord they called for aid,
yet heard he not their grief.
