Nor did these savage cruelties the

Nor did these savage cruelties
the hardened reprobates suffice;
For after their hearts' lust they went,
and daily did new crimes invent:

But sins of such infernal hue
God's wrath against his people drew,
Till he, their once indulgent Lord,
his own inheritance abhorred.

He then, defenseless, did expose
to their insulting heathen foes;
And made them on the triumphs wait
of those who bore them greatest hate.

Nor thus his indignation ceased:
their list of tyrants he increased,
Till they, who God's mild sway declined,
were made the vassals of mankind.

Yet when distressed they did repent,
his anger did as oft relent;
But freed, they did his wrath provoke,
renewed their sins, and he their yoke.

Nor yet implacable he proved,
nor heard their wretched cries unmoved;
But did to mind his promise bring,
and mercy's unexhausted spring.

Compassion too he did impart
e'en to their foes' obdurate heart,
And pity for their suff'rings bred
in those, who them to bondage led.

Still save us, Lord, and Israel's bands
together bring from heathen lands,
So to thy Name our thanks we'll raise,
and ever triumph in thy praise.

Let Israel's God be ever blessed,
his name eternally confessed:
Let all his saints, with full accord,
Sing loud Amens -- Praise ye the Lord.
