But if his sons forsake my law and so

But if his sons forsake my law,
and so begin to swerve,
And of my judgements have no awe,
and will not them observe;

Or if they do not use aright
my laws for them prepared;
But set all my commandments flight,
and will not them regard:

Then with the rod will I begin
their doing to amend,
and so will scourge them for their sin,
whenever they offend.

But yet my mercy and goodness
I will not take away
From him, nor let my faithfulness
in any wise decay:

But sure my cov'nant I will hold,
with all that I have spoke:
No word the which my lips have
shall alter or be broke.

Once sware I by my holiness,
and that perform will I;
With David I will promise keep,
to him I will not lie:

His seed for evermore shall reign,
also his throne of might,
As doth the sum it shall remain
for ever in my sight.

And as the moon within the sky
for ever standeth fast,
A faithful witness from on high;
so shall his kingdom last.

But, Lord, thou dost him now reject,
and put him in great fear;
Yea, thou art wroth with thine elect,
thine own anointed dear.

The cov'nant with thy servant made,
thou hast quite overthrown,
And down upon the ground hast laid
and cast his royal crown.
