Then said I, This my weakness is

Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 1 hymnal Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 10 Then said I, This my weakness is; but call to mind will I the years of the right hand of him who is the Lord most high. 11 Yea, I remember will the works performed by the Lord: the wonders done of old by thee I surely will record. 12 Upon thy doings I will muse, on thy works meditate; 13 most holy is thy way, O God: what God like thee is great? 14 Thou art the God that wonders dost by thy right hand most strong: thy mighty power thou hast declared the nations all among. 15 To thine own people with thine arm thou didst redemption bring; to Jacob's sons, and to the tribes of Joseph that do spring. 16 The waters did thee see, O God, the waters did thee see; the depths thereof were troubled all, for fear aside did flee. 17 The clouds in water forth were poured, sound loudly did the sky, and swiftly through the world abroad thine arrows fierce did fly. 18 Thy thunder's voice along the heaven a mighty noise did make; thy lightings lighten did the world, earth trembled and did shake. 19 Thy way is in the sea, and in the waters great thy path; thy footsteps hidden are, O Lord, none knowledge thereof hath. 20 Thy people thou didst safely lead, like to a flock of sheep; by Moses' hand and Aaron's thou didst them conduct and keep.

How should the sons of Adam's race

Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 37 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 How should the sons of Adam’s race be pure before their God? If he contends in righteousness, we sink beneath his rod. 2 If he should mark my words and thoughts with strict enquiring eyes, could I for one of thousand faults the least excuse devise? 3 Strong in his arm, his heart is wise; who dares with him contend? Or who, that tries th’ unequal strife, shall prosper in the end? 4 He makes the mountains feel his wrath, and their old seats forsake; the trembling earth deserts her place, and all her pillars shake. 5 He bids the sun forbear to rise; th’ obedient sun forbears: his hand with sackcloth spreads the skies, and seals up all the stars. 6 He walks upon the raging sea; flies on the stormy wind: none can explore his wondrous way, or his dark footsteps find.

When the last trumpet's awful voice

Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 12 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 When the last trumpet’s awful voice this rending earth shall shake, when op’ning graves shall yield their charge, and dust to life awake; 2 those bodies that corrupted fell shall incorrupted rise, and mortal forms shall spring to life immortal in the skies. 3 Behold what heav’nly prophets sung is now at last fulfill'd, that Death should yield his ancient reign, and, vanquish'd, quit the field. 4 Let Faith exalt her joyful voice, and thus begin to sing; O Grave! where is thy triumph now? and where, O Death! thy sting? 5 Thy sting was sin, and conscious guilt, ’twas this that arm'd thy dart; the law gave sin its strength and force to pierce the sinner’s heart: 6 but God, whose name be ever bless’d! disarms that foe we dread, and makes us conqu’rors when we die, through Christ our living head. 7 Then stedfast let us still remain, though dangers rise around, and in the work prescrib'd by God yet more and more abound; 8 assured that though we labour now, we labour not in vain, but, through the grace of Heav’n’s great Lord th’ eternal crown shall gain.

Lo! in the last of days behold

Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 3 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 Lo! in the last of days behold a faithless race arise; their lawless lust their only rule; and thus the scoffer cries; 2 Where is the promise, deem'd so true, that spoke the Saviour near? E’er since our fathers slept in dust, no change has reached our ear. 3 Years roll'd on years successive glide, since first the world began, and on the tide of time still floats, secure, the bark of man. 4 Thus speaks the scoffer; but his words conceal the truth he knows, that form the waters’ dark abyss the earth at first arose. 5 But when the sons of men began with one consent to stray, at Heav’n’s command a deluge swept the godless race away. 6 A diff’rent fate is now prepar'd for Nature’s trembling frame; soon shall her orbs be all enwrapt in one devouring flame. 7 Reserv'd are sinners for the hour when to the gulf below, arm'd with the hand of sov’reign pow’r, the Judge consigns his foe. 8 Though now, ye just! the time appears protracted, dark, unknown, an hour, a day, a thousand years, to heav’n’s great Lord are one. 9 Still all may share his sov’reign grace, in ev’ry change secure; the meek, the suppliant contrite race, shall find his mercy sure. 10 The contrite race he counts his friends forbids the suppliant’s fall; condemns reluctant, but extends the hope of grace to all. 11 Yet as the night-wrapped thief who lurks to seize th’ expected prize, thus steals the hour when Christ shall come, and thunder rend the skies. 12 Then at the loud, the solemn peal, the heav’ns shall burst away; the elements shall melt in flame, at Nature’s final day. Since all this frame of things must end, as Heav’n has so decreed. How wise our inmost thoughts to guard, and watch o’er ev’ry deed; 14 Expecting calm th’ appointed hour, when, Nature’s conflict o’er, A new and better world shall rise, where sin is known no more.

O Lord my God, in thee do I

Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 8 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 O Lord my God, in thee do I my confidence repose; save and deliver me from all my persecuting foes; 2 lest that the enemy my soul should, like a lion, tear, in pieces rending it, while there is no deliverer. 3 O Lord my God, if it be so that I committed this; if it be so that in my hands iniquity there is; 4 if I rewarded ill to him that was at peace with me; (yea, even the man that without cause my foe was I did free;) 5 Then let the foe pursue and take my soul, and my life thrust down to the earth, and let him lay mine honour in the dust. 6 Rise in thy wrath, Lord, raise thyself, for my foes raging be; and, to the judgment which thou hast commanded, wake for me. 7 Of nations the assembled host around thee shall draw nigh; and over them do thou return unto thy place on high. 8 Jehovah shall the people judge; my judge, Jehovah, be, after my righteousness and mine integrity in me. 9 O let the wicked’s mischief end; the righteous fortify; because the righteous God art thou who heart and reins dost try. 10 In God, who saves the upright in heart, is my defence and stay. 11 God is a righteous judge, and God is angry every day. 12 If he do not repent and turn, then he his sword will whet; his bow he hath already bent, and hath it ready set: 13 he also hath for him prepared the instruments of death; against the persecutors he his shafts ordained hath. 14 Behold, he with iniquity doth travail as in birth; a mischief he conceived hath, and falsehood shall bring forth. 15 He made a pit, and digged it deep, another there to take; but he is fallen into the ditch which he himself did make. 16 On his own head shall be returned the mischief he hath wrought; the violence that he hath done, shall on himself be brought. 17 According to his righteousness the Lord I’ll magnify; and praise will sing unto his name, who is the Lord most high.
