487. Arm of the Lord, awake! awake
Thomas Williams, Psalmodia Evangelica, 1789
Arm of the Lord, awake! awake!
Put on thy strength! the nations shake!
And let the world adoring see
Triumphs of mercy wrought by thee.
Say to the heathen from thy throne,
I am Jehovah, God alone:
Thy voice their idols shall confound,
And cast their altars to the ground.
Let Sion's time of favour come;
O bring the tribes of Israel home;
And let our wondering eyes behold
Gentiles and Jews in Jesus' fold.
Almighty God, thy grace proclaim
In every clime, of every name;
Let adverse powers before thee fall,
And crown the Savior Lord of all.
