|SPEAK in Thy power, our mighty God!
For men conspire Thy church to harm;
How proudly do they scorn Thy Word;
O rend the heavens, make bare Thine arm!
|2||As once the Canaanites of old
Joined to oppose Thy will in wars,
So unbelievers now make bold
To fight against the Gospel cause.
|3||Sharing no other ties beside,
Against Thy Truth their ranks unite
To keep souls from the Crucified
And to eclipse His saving light.
|4||Come rushing wind, the stubble chase;
Come sacred fire, the forest burn;
Come Holy Ghost, in conquering grace,
Rebellious hearts to Jesus turn.
|5||Move us the more His love to tell;
Grant countless souls a saving view;
Expose, refute the lies of hell,
And show from HeavenThy Word is true!
