Hymn/Song Information

Nor how he did their fruits unto the




Nor how he did their fruits unto
the caterpillar give,
And of the labor of their hands
locusts did them deprive:


With hail-stones he destroyed their vines,
so that they all were lost,
And likewise all their sycamores
he did consume with frost.


With hail-stones also once again
the Lord their cattle smote,
And all their flocks and herds likewise
with thunder-bolts full hot:


He cast upon them his fierce wrath,
and indignation sore,
Amongst them evil angels sent,
which troubled them yet more!


Then to his wrath he made a way,
and spar-ed not the least,
But gave unto the pestilence
the man as well as beast:


He smote also all the first-born
that up in Egypt came,
And all the chief of men and beasts
within the tents of Ham:


But as for his own people, he
did them preserve and keep,
And carried them through wilderness
e'en like a flock of sheep:


Without all fear, both safe and sound
He brought them out of thrall;
Whereas their foes with rage of seas
were overwhelm-ed all.


And brought them out into the coasts
of his own holy land,
E'en to the mount which he had got
by his strong arm and hand;


And thee cast out the heathen folk,
and did their land divide,
And in their tents he set the tribes
Of Israel t'abide.


Yet, for all this, the God most high
they moved and tempted still,
And would not keep his testament,
nor yet obey His will;


But as their fathers turn-ed back,
e'en so they went astray,
Much like a bow that will not bend,
but slips and starts away;
