THE SECURITY OF SAINTS




When the overwhelming waters
Once a world of sinners drowned,
Eight of Adamís sons and daughters,
In the ark salvation found;
Gathered to the church, may we
Thus from wrath and peril flee.


When the fire from God descended
On the cities of the plain,
Three alone, by heaven befriended,
Refuge did in Zoar gain:
By our pastors led, may we
Thus escape to Calvary.


When the midnight angel numbered
Egyptís first-born with the dead,
Israelís tribes, unsmitten slumbered,
Where the paschal lamb had bled:
By the blood of sprinkling, we
This from vengeance are made free.


When, while quick and dead assemble,
Flames this universe destroy,
Though the wicked quake and tremble,
Saints shall lift their heads with joy:
Raised to life, like them, may we
With the Lord for ever be.
