Psalter Number 158.  Defeat and Triumphant Hope - Psalm 60



1. O God, Thou hast rejected us,

And hast afflicted sore;

Thou hast been angry, but in grace

O once again restore.


2. ****


3. Through ways of trial and distress

Thy people Thou hast led,

A bitter cup Thou givest us

Of misery and dread.


4. A glorious banner Thou hast given

To those who fear Thy Name,

A banner to display abroad,

And thus the truth proclaim.


5. ****


6. God in His holiness hath said:

I will triumphant be,

All heathen lands I claim as Mine,

And they shall bow to Me.


7. ****


8. Give Thou Thy help against the foe

For help of man is vain;

Through God we shall do valiantly,

The victory He shall gain.
