44 (3)Psalm 44 Version 3LM
ARM of the Lord, awake, awake!
    Thy power unconquerable take;
Thy strength put on, assert Thy right,
And triumph in the present fight.
 
2  Why dost Thou tarry, mighty Lord?
Why slumbers in its sheath Thy sword?
Arise, Lord, for Thine honourís sake;
Arm of the Lord, awake, awake!
 
3  Behold what numbers still withstand
Thy sovereign rule and just command,
Reject Thy grace, Thy threats despise,
And hurl defiance at the skies.
 
4  O come, but come not to destroy;
Mercy is Thine—Thy crown, Thy joy!
Their hatred quell, their pride remove,
Come, melt with grace, subdue with love.
 
5  Why dost Thou from the conquest stay?
Why dost Thy saving power delay?
O how we plead—hellís kingdom shake,
Arm of the Lord, awake! awake!
 
Henry March, 1791-1869
