David's mournful Elegy

Appears in 1 hymnal Scripture: 2 Samuel 1:17 First Line: Upon the places high is slain Lyrics: 19 Upon the places high is slain The flow'r of Israel. How are the mighty fallen down: 20 In Gath this never tell: Nor shew't in streets of Askelon, Lest Philistines rejoyce, Lest daughters of th' uncircumcis'd Should make triumphant noise. 21 Ye mountains high of Gilboah Left there be never dew. Nor rain, nor fields of offerings Let ever be on you. For there the mighty one his shield Receiv'd disgraceful foil: The shield of Saul, as he had not Anointed been with oyl. 22 The bow of Jon'than did not turn Back from the blood of slain, From fat of mighty, and Saul's sword Did not return in vain. 23 Most lovely Saul and Jonathan, And pleasant did abide Whilst they did live and in their death Them nothing did divide They swifter than the eagles were, The lions did excell 24 In strength. O weep ye over Saul, Daughters of Israel. Who did in scarlet you array, With deckings manifold, Who did on your apparel lay The ornaments of gold. 25 In midst of the fierce battle how, The mighty fallen lie. O Jonathan cut off wast thou, Upon thy places high! 26 O thou my brother Jonathan, I am diftress'd for theem A loving dear companion Thou hast been unto me. Thy love to me in wonder past The love of women far: 27 How are the mighty fallen, and waste The weapons are of war!
