EPHRAIM'S REPENTANCE




How shall I give my Ephraim up,
Or make him drink the wrathful cup?
Shall I, in awful, dreadful ire
Doom him to hellís eternal fire?


Ah, no!ómy heart is turníd within;
Iíll punish, yet forgive his sin;
And my repentance shall declare,
The truth which I to Israel sware.


IíII never let my word be broke,
Nor in fierce anger deal the stroke;
My dreadful wrath líIl not employ,
Nor Ephraim will I eíer destroy.


NoóIíll fulfil my gracious plan,
For I am God, and not like man;
Nor will I punish as a foe,
But he my love shall sweetly know;


His sad backslidings Iíll forgive,
And he shall turn again and live;
I will again my joys restore,
And Ephraim then shall weep no more.
