Hymn/Song Information

In speechless silence do not hold O God




In speechless silence do not hold,
O God. thy tongue always,
E'en thou, O Lord, because thou art
the God of all my praise,


The wicked and the guileful mouths
on me disclosèd be,
And they with false and lying tongue
have spoken unto me,


They did beset me round about
with words of hateful spite;
Without all cause of my desert
against me they did fight.


For my good will they were my foes,
then I began to pray;
My good with ill, my friendliness
with hate they did repay.


Set thou the wicked over him,
to have the upper hand;
At his right hand; Lord, suffer thou
his, hateful foe-to stand,


When he is judgèd, let him then
condemn-ed be therein.
And let the pray'r that he doth make
be turn-ed into sin.


Few be his days, his charge also
let thou another take;
His children let be fatherless,
his wife a widow make:


His offspring let be vagabonds,
and ever beg their bread,
In places desolate and waste
let them seek to be fed.


et covetous extortioners
et all his goods in store,
nd let the stranger spoil the fruit
f all his toil before.


Let there be none to pity him,
let there be none at all
That on his children fatherless
will let their mercy fall.
