Who Shall Against The Lord Prevail


Who shall against the Lord prevail?
Or who presume to say,
“That righteous law, which God proclaims,
I dare to disobey?”

Ten thousand actions everywhere
Th’ impious language speak:
Yet power omnipotent stands by,
Nor do its thunders break.

But oh, the dreadful day draws near,
When God’s avenging hand
Shall show, if feeble mortals’ breath,
Or God’s own word, shall stand.

My soul, with rev’rence prostrate fall,
Before the Voice divine;
And all thine interest and thy powers
To His command resign.

Let the vain of sons of Belial boast,
Their tongues and thoughts are free;
My noblest liberty I own,
When subject most to Thee.
