Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
Why doth the Lord stand off so far?|
And why conceal his face,
When great calamities appear,
And times of deep distress?
2. Lord, shall the wicked still deride
3. They put thy judgments from their sight,
4. Arise, O God, lift up thine hand,
5. Why do the men of malice rage,|
And say, with foolish pride,
The God of heav'n will ne'er engage
To fight on Zion's side?
6. But thou for ever art our Lord;
7. Thou wilt prepare our hearts to pray,
8. Proud tyrants shall no more oppress,
