Johann Georg Frech, 1790-1864
1 LET God arise, and scattered
Let all his enemies be;
And let all those that do him hate
Before his presence flee.
2 As smoke is driven, so drive thou them;
As fire melts wax away,
Before God's face let wicked men
So perish and decay.
3 But let the righteous all be glad,
Exult before God's sight;
Yea, let them filled with gladness be,
And joy with afl their might.
4 Sing praise to God, prepare his way,
Whose name is JAH adored,
Who through the desert rideth forth;
Exult before the Lord.
5 Because the Lord a father is
Unto the fatherless;
God is the widow's judge, within
His place of holiness.
6 God sets the lonely in a home,
And frees the chained from bands;
But those against him who rebel
Inhabit parched lands.
7 O God, what time thou didst go forth
Before thy people's face;
And when through the great wilderness
Thy glorious marching was;
8 Then at God's presence shook the earth,
Then drops from heaven fell;
This Sinai shook before the Lord
The God of Israel.
9 O God, thou to thine heritage
Didst send a plenteous rain,
Whereby thou, when it weary was,
Didst it refresh again.
10 Thy congregation then did make
Their habitation there;
Of thine own goodness for the poor,
O God, thou didst prepare.
11 The Lord himself did give the word,
The word abroad did spread;
Great was the company of them
The same who published.
12 Kings of great armies foiled were,
And forced to flee away,
And women, who remained at home,
Distributed the prey.
13 Though ye have lain among the pots,
Like doves ye shall appear,
Whose wings with silver, and with gold
Whose feathers covered are.
14 When there the Almighty scattered kings,
Like Salmon's snow 'twas white.
15 A hill of God is Bashan hill,
A towering hill for height.
16 Why do ye frown, ye mountains high,
Upon the hill of God?
Here God desires to dwell, the Lord
For aye will make abode.
17 God's chariots twenty thousand are,
Thousands on thousands strong;
Sinai is in the holy place,
The Lord is them among.
18 Thou hast, O Lord, most glorious,
Ascended up on high;
And in triumph victorious led
Thou hast received gifts for men,
For such as did rebel;
Yea, even for them, that God the Lord
In midst of them might dwell.
19 Blessed be the Lord, who is to us
Of our salvation God;
Who daily with his benefits
Us plenteously doth load.
20 He of salvation is the God,
Who is our God most strong;
And unto God the Lord from death
The issues do belong.
21 But surely God shall wound the head
Of those that are his foes;
The hairy scalp of him that still
On in his trespass goes.
22 The Lord hath said, I will bring back
Again from Bashan hill;
Yea, from the dark depths of the sea
Bring back again I will.
23 That in the blood of enemies
Thy foot imbrued may be,
And of thy dogs dipped in the same
The tongues thou mayest see.
24 Thy goings they have seen, O God;
The steps of majesty
Of my God, and my mighty King,
Within the sanctuary.
25 Before went singers, after them
The players took their way;
In midst of damsels that with skill
Did on the timbrels play.
26 Within the congregations great
Bless God with one accord;
Ye who from Israel's fountain are,
Bless ye the mighty Lord.
27 Their ruler, little Benjamin,
And Judah's princes high,
The chiefs of Zabulon, are there,
And chiefs of Naphtali.
28 Thy God commands thy strength; make strong
What thou wrought'st for us, Lord.
29 For thy house at Jerusalem
Kings shall thee gifts afford.
30 The beast that dwelleth in the reeds,
The bulls that fiercely look,
With herd of calves, the people all,
Do thou, O Lord, rebuke,
Till every one submit himself,
And silver pieces bring:
The people that delight in war
Disperse, O God and King.
31 Those that be princes great shall then
Come from Egyptian lands;
And Ethiopia to God
Shall soon stretch out her hands.
32 O all ye kingdoms of the earth,
Sing praises to this King;
For he is Lord that ruleth all,
Unto him praises sing.
33 To him that rides on heavens of heavens,
Which he of old did found;
Lo, he sends out his voice, a voice
In might that doth abound.
34 Strength unto God do ye ascribe;
Because his majesty
Is over Israel, his strength
Is in the clouds most high.
35 Dread art thou from thy temple, Lord;
Israel's own God is he,
Who gives his people strength and power;
O let God blessed be.
