The God of gods the Lord hath called the




The God of gods, the Lord,
hath called the earth by name,
From whence the sun doth rise unto
the setting of~the same.


From Zion his fair place,
his glory bright and clear,
The perfect beauty of his grace,
from thence it did appear,


Our God shall come in haste,
to speak aloud, no doubt;
Before him shall the fire waste,
and tempest round about.


The heav'ns which are so high,
the earth below likewise,
He will call forth, that he may try
the people that are his.


Bring forth my saints, saith he,
my faithful flock most dear,
Who are in band and league with me,
my law to love and fear.


And when these thins are try'd
then shall the heav'ns record;
That God is just, and all must 'bide
the judgement of the Lord.


My people, now give heed,
Israel, to thee I cry;
I am thy God, thy help at need,
thou canst it not deny.


I do not say to thee,
Thy sacrifice is slack;
Thou offer'st daily unto me
much more than I do lack.


Think'st thou that I do need
thy cattle young or old?.
Or else so much desire to feed
on goats out of thy fold?


Nay, all the beasts are mine,
in woods that eat their fills
And thousand more of neat and kine
that run wild on the hills:
