BISHOPTHORPE | Same-Tune Hymns | Bible Passage
Jeremiah Clarke, 1673-1707
1 MY heart is fixed, O God; I'll sing,
And with my glory praise.
2 Awake up psaltery and harp;
Myself I'll early raise.
3 I'll praise thee 'mong the people, Lord;
'Mong nafons sing will I:
4 For above heaven thy mercy's great,
Thy truth doth reach the sky.
5 Be thou above the heavens, O God,
Thy glory all the earth above
Be lifted up on high.
6 That those who thy beloved are
Delivered may be,
O do thou save with thy right hand,
And answer give to me.
7 God in his holiness did speak,
My joy shall be complete;
Shechem I will divide, by line
The vale of Succoth mete.
8 Gilead I claim as mine by right;
Manasseh mine shall be;
Ephraim is of my head the strength;
Judah gives laws for me;
9 Moab my wash-pot is; my shoe
I'll over Edom throw;
Over Philistia my shout
Of triumph forth shall go.
10 O who is he will bring me to
The city fortified?
O who is he that to the land
Of Edom will me guide?
11 O God, who hast rejected us,
Wilt thou not help us so?
Even thou, 0 God, who dost no more
Forth with our armies go.
12 From trouble help thou us, for vain
The help from man that flows.
13 Through God we shall do valiantly;
He shall tread clown our foes.
