Psalm 60

   1  O Lord, thou hast rejected us,
         and scattered us abroad;
      Thou justly hast displeased been;
         return to us, O God.

   2  The earth to tremble thou hast made;
         therein didst breaches make:
      Do thou thereof the breaches heal,
         because the land doth shake.

   3  Unto thy people thou hard things
         hast showed, and on them sent;
      And thou hast caused us to drink
         wine of astonishment.

   4  And yet a banner thou hast giv'n
         to them who thee do fear;
      That it by them, because of truth,
         displayed may appear.

   5  That thy beloved people may
         delivered be from thrall,
      Save with the pow'r of thy right hand,
         and hear me when I call.

   6  God in his holiness hath spoke;
         herein I will take pleasure:
      Shechem I will divide, and forth
         will Succoth's valley measure.

   7  Gilead I claim as mine by right;
         Manasseh mine shall be;
      Ephraim is of mine head the strength;
         Judah gives laws for me;

   8  Moab's my washing-pot; my shoe
         I'll over Edom throw;
      And over Palestina's land
         I will in triumph go.

   9  O who is he will bring me to
         the city fortified?
      O who is he that to the land
         of Edom will me guide?

  10  O God, which hadest us cast off,
         this thing wilt thou not do?
      Ev'n thou, O God, which didest not
         forth with our armies go?

  11  Help us from trouble; for the help
         is vain which man supplies.
  12  Through God we'll do great acts; he shall
         tread down our enemies.
