Hymn/Song Information

He is the God from whom alone salvation




He is the God from whom alone
salvation we obtain,
He is the God by whom we 'scape
all dangers, death, and pain:


And he shall wound the head of all
his enemies, also
The hairy scalp of such as on
in wickedness still go.


From Basan will I bring, said he,
my people and my sheep,
And all my own, as I have done,
from dangers of the deep;


And make them dip their feet in blood
of those that hate my Name;
The tongues of dogs they shall be red
with licking of the same.


Thy goings they have seen, O God,
unto their own disgrace,
How thou, my God and King, dost go
within thy holy place:


The singers go before with joy,
the minstrels make no stay,
And in the midst the damsels do
with timbrels sweetly play.


Now in the congregations thou,
O Israel, praise the Lord,
And Jacob's whole posterity,
give thanks with one accord:


The chief was little Benjamin,
but Judah made their host,
With Zebulon and Nephthalim,
who dwelt about their coast,


Thy God hath sent forth strength for thee,
O God, make firm and sure
The thing that thou bast wrought in us
for ever to endure:


Then in thy temple gifts will we
offer to thee, O Lord,
And in thy own Jerusalem
praise thee with one accord.
