Psalm 53 [Are All The Foes Of Sion Fools]
by [?]


Psalm 53. 4-6
Victory and deliverance from persecution.

Are all the foes of Sion fools,
Who thus devour her saints?
Do they not know her Saviour rules,
And pities her complaints?

They shall be seiz’d with sad surprise;
For God’s revenging arm
Scatters the bones of them that rise
To do his children harm.

In vain the sons of Satan boast
Of armies in array:
When God has first despis’d their host,
They fall an easy prey.

O for a word from Sion’s King
Her captives to restore!
Jacob with all his tribes shall sing,
And Judah weep no more.
