Hymn/Song Information

It was imputed unto him for righteous




It was imputed unto him
for righteousness that day,
And from thenceforth so counted is
from race to race alway.


At waters call-ed Meribah
they did him angry make;
Yea, so far forth that Moses then
was punished for their sake:


Because they vexed his spirit so,
that in impatient heat
His lips spake unadvisedly,
his fervor was so great.


Nor as the Lord commanded them,
did they the people slay;
But were among the heathen mixed,
and learned their wicked way:


They did their idols serve, which was
their ruin and decay;
To devils sons and daughters did
they offer up and slay.


Yea, with unkind and murd'ring knife
the guiltless blood they spilt,
E'en their own sons' and daughters' blood
without all cause of guilt;


Whom they to Canaan's idols then
offered with wicked hand,
And so with blood of innocents
Defilèd was the land.


Thus they were stain-ed with the works
of their own filthy way,
And with their own inventions did
a whoring go astray.


Therefore against his people was
his anger kindled sore,
And e'en his own inheritance
he did abhor therefore.


Into the hands of heathen men
he gave them for a prey;
And made their foes their lords, whom they
were forcèd to obey.
