2014 BOOK OF PRAISE OF THE CANADIAN REFORMED CHURCHES
1. O God, you have rejected us
and left your people powerless.
Too long we’ve seen your anger burn.
Restore us now! To us return!
You’ve made our land convulse and shake;
we’ve seen it crack and split and quake.
Now cause its breaches to be mended;
no longer leave us undefended.
2. God, you have made your people see
times of extreme adversity.
Our life became one harsh ordeal;
you gave us wine that made us reel.
But you have raised a banner high
for those who on your help rely.
Now show your might and save your nation;
to those you love, grant liberation.
3. Our mighty King, the God of grace,
has spoken in his holy place:
“All Succoth’s vale and Shechem’s land
I will divide as I have planned.
All Gilead belongs to me;
Manasseh is my property.
My helmet: Ephraim, strong defender.
My sceptre: Judah, firm commander.”
4. God shamed his foes with words that sting:
“At Edom I my sandal fling;
I Moab as my washbowl claim
and in Philistia shout my fame.”
God, who but you can be our guide
to Edom, so well fortified?
But you have cast us off in anger
and with our armies march no longer.
5. To us again your favour show;
grant us your aid against the foe.
Uphold us as none other can,
for worthless is the help of man.
Our God will crush the enemy;
with him, we’ ll gain the victory.
Our proud oppressors he will humble,
tread on their necks and make them tremble.
