O Mighty Man, Why Wilt Thou Boast?

Meter: Appears in 4 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 52 First Line: O mighty man, why wilt thou boast Lyrics: 1. O mighty man, why wilt thou boast Thyself in hateful cruelty, When God Almighty is most kind, And ever merciful is He? 2. Thy tongue deviseth wickedness, A weapon treacherous and keen; Thou lovest evil more than good, And falsehood in thy sight is clean. 3. Since, O thou false, deceitful tongue, In deadly words thou findest joy, The Lord shall pluck thee from thy place And all thy wickedness destroy. 4. The good, confirmed in godly fear, The pride and folly shall confess Of those who make not God their strength, But trust in wealth and wickedness. 5. But as for me, my strength is like A verdant temple olive tree; My trust is in God’s tender love, Which shall endure eternally. 6. With endless thanks, O Lord, to Thee, Thy wondrous works I will proclaim, And in the presence of Thy saints Will ever hope in Thy good name.

The wicked, from their earliest days, In sin are gone astray, With froward heart, in foolish pride, From wisdom turned away, From wisdom turned away. 3. The God of vengeance will destroy The wicked from His sight; The Lord will bring to naught their power And scatter all their might, And scatter all their might. 4. The good shall triumph and rejoice, And this shall be confessed: On earth the God of justice reigns, And righteousness is blest, And righteousness is blest.

God Saved His People from Distress

God saved His people from distress And led them through the wilderness; Then mountains trembled in their place, The heav’ns were bowed before His face. With copious showers Thou didst assuage The thirsting of Thy heritage; Thy congregation dwelt secure; Thou, God, art gracious to the poor. 2. With glorious pomp our King and God Has entered into His abode With sacred minstrelsy and song, While maidens with their timbrels throng. Assemble ye before His face, All ye that spring from Israel’s race; Ye chosen tribes with one accord Come ye, and bless your God, the Lord.

O Wherefore Hast Thou Cast Us Off?

Meter: Appears in 4 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 74 First Line: O wherefore hast Thou cast us off Lyrics: 1. O wherefore hast Thou cast us off, O God, our God of old? Why art Thou angry with Thy sheep, The sheep of Thine own fold, The sheep of Thine own fold? 2. Remember Thy inheritance, Thy Church, redeemed by grace; Remember Zion’s mount profaned, Thine ancient dwelling place, Thine ancient dwelling place. 3. In ruin long Thy temple lies; Arise, O God of grace, And see the ruin foes have wrought Within Thy holy place, Within Thy holy place. 4. Amid Thy courts are lifted high The standards of the foe, And impious hands with axe and fire Have laid Thy temple low, Have laid Thy temple low. 5. They have profaned the holy place Where Thou hast set Thy name, The sanctuaries of our God Are given to the flame, Are given to the flame. 6. We see no signs of power divine, No prophet speaks for Thee, And none can tell, and none can know, How long these woes shall be, How long these woes shall be. 7. How long, O God, shall blasphemy And shame reproach our land? Why dost Thou not destroy Thy foes With Thine almighty hand, With Thine almighty hand? 8. O God, Thou art our King of old, Salvation Thou hast wrought; In safety through the mighty sea Our fathers Thou hast brought. 9. Withy mighty arm thou didst destroy The pride of boastful man, And for Thy people made a path Where mighty waters ran. 10. The day is Thine, and Thine the night, And Thine the shining sun; At Thy command the earth’s bounds are set And changing seasons run. 11. Mark how Thy enemies, O Lord, Against Thee proudly speak; Preserve Thy saints from wicked men, Be mindful of the meek. 12. Fulfill, O Lord, Thy covenant, Our strong protector be, For in the earth are dark abodes Of crime and cruelty. 13. Let not Thy saints be put to shame, No longer in Thy sight Permit Thy foes to vaunt themselves; Lord, vindicate the right.

To God Will I Direct My Prayer

Meter: Appears in 4 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 77 Lyrics: 1. To God will I direct my prayer, And He will make my needs His care; I trust Him still, though in my grief No answer yet has brought relief; With hands outstretched through all the night, Uncomforted I sought for light. 2. The thought of God brought me no peace, But rather made my fears increase; With sleepless eyes and speechless pain My fainting spirit grieved in vain; The blessedness of long ago Made deeper still my present woe. 3. Recalling days when faith was bright, When songs of gladness filled my night, I pondered o’er my grievous woes And searching questioning arose; Will God cast off, and nevermore His favor to my soul restore? 4. I asked in fear and bitterness: Will God forsake me in distress? Shall I His promise faithless find? Has God forgotten to be kind? Has He in anger hopelessly Removed His love and grace from me? 5. These doubts and fears that troubled me Were born of my infirmity; Though I am weak, God is most high, And on His goodness I rely; Of all His wonders, I will tell, And on His deeds my thoughts shall dwell.

In Thy Heritage the Heathen

Author: Anonymous Meter: D Appears in 6 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 79 Lyrics: 1. In Thy heritage the heathen Now, O God, triumphant stand; They defile Thy holy temple, They destroy Thy chosen land; Ruthless, they have slain Thy servants, They have caused Thy saints to mourn; In the sight of all about us We endure reproach and scorn. 2. O how long against Thy people Shall Thine anger burn, O Lord? On Thine enemies, the heathen, Be Thine indignation poured; Smite the kingdoms that defy Thee, Calling not upon Thy name; They have long devoured Thy people And have swept Thy land with flame. 3. O remember not against us Evil by our fathers wrought; Haste to help us in Thy mercy Near to ruin we are brought; Help us, God of our salvation, For the glory of Thy name; For Thy name’s sake come and save us, Take away our sin and shame. 4. Let Thy foes no longer scorn Thee, Now avenge Thy servants slain; Loose the prisoner, save the dying, All Thine enemies restrain; Then Thy flock, Thy chosen people, Unto Thee their thanks shall raise, And to every generation We will sing Thy glorious praise.

O Thou Great Shepherd of Thy Chosen Race

Author: Unknown Meter: Appears in 6 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 80 Lyrics: 1. O Thou great shepherd of Thy chosen race, Who leadest like a flock Thine Israel dear, From out the cherubim reveal Thy face, Before our host now let Thy might appear. Come Thou, O God, to save us and restore; We shall be saved when shines Thy face once more. 2. How long, O Lord, wilt Thou disdain our prayer? For Thou hast fed us with the bread of tears, And bitter sorrow Thou hast made us share; The nations round us mock with scornful jeers. O God of hosts, Thy people now restore; We shall be saved when shines Thy face once more. 3. A vine Thou broughtest forth from Egypt’s land; The nations were thrust out to give it room; It took deep root, it spread on every hand, The hills were covered with its shade and bloom; Its boughs were like great cedars spreading wide; They reached the sea, its roots the riverside. 4. Why hast Thou broken down its circling wall That they may pluck who pass along the way? Wild beasts from out the wood destroy it all And feed upon Thy vine by night and day. O God of hosts, we pray Thee now restore; We shall be saved when shines Thy face once more. 5. Look down, behold and visit this Thy vine Which Thou hast planted with Thine own right hand, The branch Thou hast made strong and owned as Thine, For it is burned with fire, no more to stand; Thy people perish in Thine anger sore Because Thy face now shines on them no more. 6. O let Thy hand Thy chosen one sustain, The son of man Thou madest strong to be; So we shall faithful to Thy cause remain; Revive Thou us, and we will call on Thee. Jehovah, God of hosts, again restore: We shall be saved when shines Thy face once more. Used With Tune: LANGRAN

O Thou Who the Shepherd of Israel Art

Author: Unknown Meter: Appears in 11 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 80 Lyrics: 1.

In Ephraim’s, Manasseh’s and Benjamin’s sight, O come Thou and save us; awake in Thy might. O God, give us favor, restore to Thy grace; And then we shall live in the light of Thy face. 3. From Egypt’s dark border a vine Thou didst take; Destroying the heathen didst room for it make. Where planted it grew at Thy sovereign command, With roots deeply set and boughs filling the land. 4. The axe hews it down; it is burned in the fire; They perish, rebuked in Thy terrible ire. O lay then Thy hand on the Man of Thy might, The Son of Man made to stand strong in Thy sight. 5. No more shall we wander, delighting in shame; Revive us, O Lord, we will call on Thy name. O Lord God of Hosts, us restore to Thy grace, And then we shall live in the light of Thy face.

Enthroned Amid the Seraphim

Appears in 2 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 80 Lyrics: 1 Enthroned amid the seraphim, Where countless roll the wheels of time, Celestial light, almighty power! Burst forth in this afflictive hour! Effulgent, shine upon our race! Thy ancient mercies, Lord, retrace! 2 From superstition’s dark domain, From persecution’s cruel reign, When erst a tender vine was brought, With joys exuberantly fraught; In regions wrapped in destiny, It rose and bloomed, a lovely tree! 3 Its shade the mountains overspread; Its root, by bubbling fountains fed, Nor drought, nor desert, could arrest; Its branches filled the farthest west: Beside a thousand flowery banks, Its clusters swelled in glowing ranks. 4 Now torn and prostrate its defense, Despoiled of its magnificence, The savage hunter treads it down; It fades beneath a tyrant’s frown; The sword destroys, the fire devours, The Deity in darkness lours! 5 Ah! why deserted of our God? His vineyard, why a field of blood? Return, O God of hosts, return! Thy ravaged, slaughtered church discern! Behold, and victory impart! Thine, ever Thine, shall be our heart! Used With Tune: MELITA Text Sources: The Psalms, Newly Paraphrased for the Service of the Sanctuary by Joseph P. Bartrum (Boston: Russell, Osborne & Company, 1833)
