1 O GOD, thou hast rejected us,
And scattered us abroad;
Thou justly hast displeased been;
Return to us, O God.
2 The earth to tremble thou hast made;
Therein didst breaches make:
Do thou thereof the breaches heal,
Because the land doth shake.
3 Hard things thou hast thy people shown,
Distress upon them sent;
And thou hast caused us to drink
Wine of astonishment.
4 And yet a banner thou hast given
To those who thee do fear;
That it by them, because of truth,
Displayed may appear.
5 That thy beloved people may
Delivered be from thrall,
Save with the power of thy right hand,
And hear me when I call.
6 God in his holiness did speak,
My joy shall be complete;
I Shechem will divide, by line
The vale of Succoth mete.
7 Gilead I claim as mine by right;
Manasseh mine shall be;
Ephraim is of mine head the strength;
Judah gives laws for me;
8 Moab my washpot is; my shoe,
Edom, I'll cast o'er thee;
Philistia, through thy borders all
Cry out because of me.
9 O who is he will bring me to
The city fortified?
O who is he that to the land
Of Edom will me guide?
10 O God, who hast rejected us,
Wilt thou not help us so?
Even thou, O God, who dost no more
Forth with our armies go?
11 Help us from trouble; for the help
Is vain which man bestows:
12 Through God we shall do valiantly;
He shall tread down our foes.
