 1  The fount and flood were cleft by Thee,
       the mighty streams were dried.
    The day and night are Thine, and Thou
       didst light and sun provide.
    By Thee the borders of the earth 
       were settled so to be;
    The summer and the winter, Lord
       created were by Thee.

 2  That foolish people have blasphemed
       Thy Name Eternal God;
    That spiteful foes have Thee reproached
       in memory record.
    Leave not Thy dove unto the mul-
       titude of wicked men;
    The congregation of Thy poor, 
       forget not to the end.

 3  Lord, to Thy cov'nant have respect;
       because in ev'ry clime
    Are earth's dark places filled with homes 
       of cruelty and crime.
    Let not all those who are oppressed
       return again with shame;
    Let those who poor and needy are
       give praises to Thy Name.
