Because against the words of God they




Because against the words of God
they proudly did rebel,
Esteeming light his counsels high,
which do so far excel:


But when he humbled them full low,
then they fell down with grief;
And none was found that could them help,
or give them some relief.


Then they did cry in their distress
unto the Lord for aid,
Who did remove their troublous state,
according as they prayed:


For he from darkness brought them out,
and from death's dreadful shade,
Bursting with force the iron bands,
which them before did lade.


Let men therefore before the Lord
confess his goodness then,
And show the wonders that the does
before the sons of men.


For he threw down the gates of brass
with strong and mighty hand,
The iron bars in sunder brake
nothing could him withstand.


The foolish folk great plagues do feel,
by reason of their sin,
And for the great transgressions which
they still continue in.


Their soul abhorred all sorts of meat,
no relish they could have;
By which means they were almost brought
unto the very grave.


Then did they cry in their distress
unto the Lord for aid,
Who did remove their troublous state
according as they prayed.


For then he sent to them his word,
which health did soon restore,
And brought them from those dangers deep,
wherein they were before.
