JUSTIN HEINRICH KNECHT, 1752-1817
1 TO thee, O God, do we give I thanks,
We do give thanks to thee;
Because thy wondrous works declare
Thy great name near to be.
2 I shall the time appointed take,
The moment fixed upon;
And I shall judgment uprightly
Render to every one.
3 Dissolved is the land, with all
That in the same do dwell;
But I the pillars thereof do
Bear up, and stablish well.
4 I to the foolish people said,
Do not deal foolishly;
And unto those that wicked are,
Lift not your horn on high.
5 Lift not your horn on high, nor speak
6 With stubborn neck. But know
That not from east, nor west, nor south,
Doth exaltation flow.
7 But God is judge; he puts down one,
And sets another up.
8 For in the hand of God most high
Of red wine is a cup:
'Tis full of mixture, he pours forth,
And makes the wicked all
Wring out the bitter dregs thereof;
Yea, and they drink them shall.
9 But I for ever will declare,
I Jacob's God will praise.
10 All horns of wicked men I'll break,
But just men's horns will raise.
1 ¬∂ Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.
2 When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly.
3 The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it. Selah.
4 I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn:
5 Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck.
6 ¬∂ For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.
8 For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them.
9 But I will declare for ever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10 All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
