Psalm 53:4-6

Words: Isaac Watts

Common Metre Tunes

Victory and deliverance from persecution.
   1  Are all the foes of Zion fools,
         Who thus devour her saints?
      Do they not know her Savior rules,
         And pities her complaints?
   2  They shall be seized with sad surprise;
         For God's revenging arm
      Scatters the bones of them that rise
         To do his children harm.
   3  In vain the sons of Satan boast
         Of armies in array;
      When God has first despised their host/
         They fall an easy prey.
   4  O for a word from Zion's King,
         Her captives to restore!
      Jacob with all his tribes shall sing,
         And Judah weep no more.
