When In His Might


When in His might the Lord arose to set us free,
And Zion was restored from her captivity,
In transports then of joy and mirth
We praised the Lord of all the earth.The
nations saw with fear the might of God displayed,
When He at last drew near to give His people aid;
Great things for us the Lord has wrought,
And gladness to our hearts has brought.Again refresh us, Lord, with Thy reviving love,
And be Thy blessing in mercy poured in mercy from
above;
By grace revive our hearts again,
As streams refreshed by copious rain.Although with bitter tears the sower bears his
seed,
When harvest time appears he shall be glad indeed;
For they that in the sowing weep
Shall yet in joy and gladness reap.
