Hymn/Song Information

For of this time the strength and chief




For of this time the strength and chief
we dote so much upon,
Is nothing else but pain and grief,
and we as blasts are gone.


What man doth know what power and
what might thy anger hath?
Or in his heart who doth thee fear
according to thy wrath?


Instruct us, Lord, to know and try
how long our days remain;
That so we may our hearts apply
true wisdom to attain.


Return, O Lord, how long wilt thou
in thy great wrath proceed?
Show favor to thy servants now,
and help them at their need.


Refresh us with thy mercy soon,
then shall we joyful be;
All times so long as life doth last
in heart rejoice will we.


As thou hast plagued us before,
now also make us glad,
And for the years wherein full sore
affliction we have had.


O let thy work and pow'r appear,
and on thy servants light,
And show unto thy children dear
thy glory and thy might.


Lord, let thy grace and glory stand
on us thy servants thus;
Confirm the works we take in hand,
and prosper them to us.
