Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
Now may the God of power and grace|
Attend his people's humble cry!
Jehovah hears when Isr'el prays,
And brings deliverance from on high.
2. The name of Jacob's God defends
3. Well he remembers all our sighs,
4. In his salvation is our hope,|
And, in the name of Isr'el's God,
Our troops shall lift their banners up,
Our navies spread their flags abroad.
5. Some trust in horses trained for war,
6. O may the memory of thy name
7. Now save us, Lord, from slavish fear,|
Now let our hopes be firm and strong,
Till the salvation shall appear,
And joy and triumph raise the song.
