1 O Lord, thou hast rejected us, And scattered us abroad; With us thou hast offended been, Return to us, O God.
2 The earth to tremble thou hast made, In it didst breaches make; Do thou thereof the breaches heal, Because the land doth shake.
3 To thy own people, thou hard things Hast shown, and on them sent; And thou hast caused us drink the wine Of sore astonishment.
4 And yet a banner thou hast given To those who thee do fear, That for the sake of truth by them Displayed it may appear.
5 That thy beloved people, Lord, May all delivered be, Save with the power of thy right hand, And answer give to me.
6 God in his holiness did speak, In this rejoice I will: I Shechem will divide, and I Will measure Succoth's vale.
7 I Gilead claim as mine by right; Manasseh mine shall be; Of my head Ephraim's the strength; Judah gives laws for me.
8 In Moab I will wash; my shoe I will to Edom throw; And o'er the land of Palestine I will in triumph go.
9 O who is he will bring me to The city fortified? And who is he that to the land Of Edom will me guide?
10 O God, who hadst rejected us, This thing wilt thou not do? Even thou, O God, thou who didst not Forth with our armies go?
11 Help us from trouble; for the help Is vain which man supplies. Through God we'll do great acts; he will Tread down our enemies.
1 O Lord. thou hast cast off, And scattered us abroad; Thou wast displeased with us, but now Return again, O God.
2 The earth thou mad'st to shake, In it didst breaches make; These breaches in thy mercy heal, Because the land doth shake.
3 Thou didst hard things to us Thy erring people show; And thou hast filled for us a cup Of fearfulness and woe.
4 A banner thou hast given To them thy name who fear, That it displayed because of truth, Before them might appear.
5 That thy beloved land From trouble may be free, Deliver thou with thy right hand; And hear my earnest plea.
6 In holiness God spake, In this rejoice I will; The land of Shechem I'll divide, And measure Succoth's vale.
7 To me Manasseh's land, And Gilead belong; Judah gives laws for me, my head Shall Ephraim make strong.
8 In Moab I will wash, My shoe o'er Edom throw; Thou Palestine because of me Shalt forth in triumph go.
9 Unto the city strong O who will be my guide? And who will lead me to the land Where Edom's bands reside?
10 O God, wilt thou not guide; Thou who didst stand afar, Refusing with our host to go When marching forth to war?
11 From trouble give us help, For vain is human aid; Through God we shall do valiant deeds; He on our foes shall tread.
