Hymn/Song Information

O God thou art our King and Lord and




O God, thou art our King and Lord,
and evermore hast been;
Yea, thy good grace throughout the world
for our great help is seen.


The seas that are so deep and dead,
thy might did make them dry;
And thou didst break the serpent's head,
that he therein did die.


Yea, thou didst break the beads so great
of whales that are most fell.
And gav'st them to the folk to eat
that in the deserts dwell.


Thou mad'st a spring with streams to rise
from rocks both hard and him;
Thy mighty hand hath made likewise
deep waters to be dry.


Both day and night also are thine,
by thee they were began;
And thou likewise prepared hast
the light of moon and sun.


Thou didst appoint the ends and coasts
of all the earth about;
Both summer heats and winter frosts
thy hand hath found them out.


Think on, O Lord, no time forget
thy foes that thee defame,
And how the foolish folk are set
to rail upon thy Name.


Deliver not the soul, O Lord,
of thine own turtle-dove
Into their hands, but help afford
the poor, whom thou dost love.


Regard, O Lord, thy covenant,
behold our misery;
All the dark places of the earth
are full of cruelty.


Let not the simple man therefore
be turn-ed back with shame;
But let the needy evermore
give praise unto thy Name.


Arise, O Lord, and plead thy cause
against thy enemies,
Who daily do reject thy laws,
and them with scorn despise:


The voice forget not of thy foes,
for the presumption high
Is more and more increased of those
that hate thee spitefully.
