Hymn/Song Information

And in the land of Ham for them most won




And in the land of Ham for them
most wondrous works had done,
And by the Red Sea dreadful things
Perform-ed long agone.


Therefore because they showed themselves
forgetful and unkind,
To bring destruction on them all
he purposed in his mind:


Had not his chosen Moses stood
before him in the way,
To turn away his wrath, lest he
should them destroy and slay.


They did despise the pleasant land
that he to them did give,
Yea, and the words that he had spoke
they did no whit believe;


But in their tents with grudging heart
they wickedly repined,
Nor to the voice of God the Lord
did give an heark'ning mind.


Therefore against them lifted he
his strong revenging hand,
Them to destroy in wilderness,
before they saw the land;


And to destroy their seed among
the nations with his rod,
And through the kingdoms of the world
to scatter them abroad.


To Baal-peor they did join
themselves most wickedly,
The sacrifices of the dead
eating most greedily.


Thus they with their inventions did
his anger much provoke;
And in his sore enkindled wrath
the plague upon them broke.


But Phinehas stood up with zeal
the sinners vile to slay;
And judgment he did execute,
and then the plague did stay.
