Hymn/Song Information

O Lord thou dost revenge all wrong




O Lord, thou dost revenge all wrong,
vengeance belongs to thee:
Since then it doth to thee belong,
Declare that all may see.


Set forth thyself, for thou of right
the earth doth judge and guide;
Reward the proud, and men of might,
according to their pride.


How long shall wicked men bear sway
with lifting up their voice?
Shall proud and wicked men alway
thus triumph and rejoice?


How long shall they with brags burst out,
and proudly talk their fill!
Shall they rejoice that be so stout,
whose works are ever ill!


Thy flock, O Lord, thine heritage
they spoil and vex full sore;
Against thy people they do rage
still daily more and more.


The widows which are comfortless,
and strangers they destroy,
They slay the children fatherless,
and none doth put them by.


And when they take these things in hand,
this talk they have of thee,
Can Jacob's God this understand?
tush, no, he cannot see.


O folk unwise, and people hide,
some knowledge now discern,;
Ye fools among the multitude,
at length begin to learn.


The Lord who made the ear of man,
he needs of right must hear;
He made the eye, all things must then
before his sight appear.


The Lord doth all the world correct,
and make them understand;
Shall he not then your deeds detect?
how can ye 'scape his hand?
