Song 76
To forever. For strings, a song of praise: by Asaph.
1God is great in Israel
1His name in Judah known
2Salem is his dwelling
2And his refuge Zion's own.

3There he smote the arrows
3As they bent ablaze the bow
3There he over shield and sword
3Did victory bestow.

4Your glory shines in power still
4These hills abound with game
5The brave of heart to cower will
5Let staunch men die in shame

6Yet Jacob's God, at your approach
6Both horse and rider fall
6To sleep their sleep in silence
6At the wonder of it all.

7And who will rise before you now
7When anger flare your nose
8You send your judgments from on high--
8The land accepts repose.

8Although they hear and so they fear
8And well they heed your call
9When God was stirred to judge the earth
9The humble got it all.

10As sure as there is anger now
10Let some to you remain
10And be in anger praised by men
10But wrath do you restrain
11To God Jehovah swift your vows
11Of his allegiance pay
11For regal hearts he disallows
11To all the kings' dismay
