Hymn/Song Information

Destroy them not at once O Lord lest it

Destroy them not at once, O Lord,
lest it from mind do fall;
But with thy strength drive them abroad,
and so consume them all.

For their ill words and lying tongue
confound them in their pride;
Their wicked oaths with lies and wrong
let all the world deride.

That men may know throughout the world
that Jacob's God doth reign.
Consume them in thy wrath, O Lord,
that nought of them remain;

At ev'ning they return apace,
as dogs they grin and cry;
Throughout the streets in ev'ry place
they run about and spy.

They seek about for meat alway,
but let them not be fed,
Nor find a house wherein they may
be bold to put their head.

But I will shew thy strength abroad,
thy goodness I will praise;
For thou art my defense and God
in time of need always.

Thou art my strength, thou hast me stayed,
O Lord, I sing to thee;
Thou art my fort, my fence, and aid,
a loving God to me.
