Hymn/Song Information

They did with force thrust sore at me




They did with force thrust sore at me,
that I indeed might fall,
But through the Lord I found such help
as did them vanquish all.


The Lord is my defense and strength,
my joy, my mirth, and song,
And is become to me indeed
a Savior great and strong.


The right hand of the Lord our God
doth bring to pass great things;
He causes voice of joy and health
in righteous men's dwellings.


The right hand of the Lord doth bring
most mighty things to pass;
His hand hath the pre-eminence,
his force is as it was.


I shall not die, but ever live
to utter and declare
The mighty power of the Lord,
his works, and what they are.


The Lord himself hath chasten-ed,
and hath corrected me,
But not me given over yet
to death, as you may see.


Set open unto me the gates
of truth and righteousness,
That I may enter into them
his praise for to express.


This is the gate of God the Lord,
which open shall be set,
hat good and righteous men always
may enter into it.
