Let men therefore before the Lord

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

And let them offer sacrifice
to him most thankfully,
And speak of all his wondrous works
with gladness and with joy.

Such as in ships and brittle barks
unto the seas descend,
Their merchandise through fearful floods
to compass and to end:

These men are forcèd to behold
the Lord's works what they be,
And in the dreadful deep the same
most marvelous they see.

For at his word the stormy wind
arises in a rage,
And stirreth up the surges so
that nought can them assuage.

Then they are lifted up so high
the clouds they seem to gain,
And plunging down the depth until
their souls consume with pain:

And like a drunkard to and fro
now here, now there they reel;
As men who had their reason lost,
and hand no sense to feel.

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

For at his word the Lord does make
the sturdy storms to cease,
So that the waves from their great rage
are brought to rest and peace.

Then are they glad when rest is come,
which they so much did crave,
And to the hav'n by him are brought,
which they so fain would have.
