Now let the Sons of Belial hear
The thunders of the Lord;
Unfold their long rebellious ear,
And tremble at His Word.

Now let the iron sinew bow,
And take His easy yoke;
Lest sudden vengeance lay it low,
By one resistless stroke.

Though yet the great Physician wait,
And healing balm be found;
One hour may seal their endless fate,
And fix a deadly wound.

Swift may Thy mercy, Lord, arise,
Ere justice stop their breath;
And lighten these deluded eyes,
That sleep the sleep of death.
