Hymn/Song Information

Let his posterity be quite destroyed and




Let his posterity be quite
destroyed and never breed,
Their name out-blotted in the age
that after shall succeed.


Let not his father's wickedness
from God's remembrance fall;
And never let his mother's sin
be done away at all.


But in the presence of the Lord,
let them for ever stay,
That from the earth their memory
he may cut clean away:


Since mercy he forgot to show,
but did pursue with spite
The troubled man, and sought to slay
the woeful-hearted wight.


As he did cursing love, it shall
happen unto him so;
And as he did not blessing love,
far from him it shall go,


As he with cursing clad himself,
so it like water shall
Enter his bowels, and like oil
into his bones shall fall.


E'en as the garment let it be
to cover him withal,
And as a girdle wherewith he
always be girded shall.


Let this be the reward from God
of him that is my foe,
Yea, and of those that evil speak
against my soul also.


But thou, O Lord, that art my God,
deal graciously with me;
Deliver me for thy Name's sake,
for great thy mercies be;


Because in depth of great distress
I needy am and poor,
Also within my pained breast
my heart is wounded sore,
