O God! By Thy Name save! In pow'r
my name uphold as Thine and true.
Prayers Thee implore; Thine ear unto
my voice attend in needful hour.
They know me not, yet rise averse -
These violent men, arrayed in strife,
who would pour out my crimson life,
who deem Thy countenance a curse.
God is my help! Through stricken woes
He has sustained my feeble soul,
will recompense vile villains whole,
annihilate my faithless foes!
I sacrifice in joy, and bend
to Thy great Name, in thanks, my knee!
Delivered from my enemy,
delights my eye to see his end!
