Be light and glad, in God rejoice

Author: J. H. Hymnal: The Whole Book of Psalms #LXXXI (1790) Hymnal Title: The Whole Book of Psalms Lyrics: 1 Be light and glad, in God rejoice, who is our strength and stay; Be joyful and lift up your voice to Jacob's God alway: 2 Prepare your instruments most meet some joyful psalm to sing, Strike up with harp and lute so sweet on ev'ry pleasant string: 3 Blow as it were in the new moon, with trumpets of the best As it is used to be done at any solemn feast: 4 For this is unto Israel a statute, which was made By Jacob's God, and must full well be evermore obey'd: 5 This clause with Joseph was decreed, when he from Egypt came, That as a witness all his seed should still observe the same. 6 When God himself had so prepar'd to bring him from that land, Whereas the speech which he had heard he did not under-stand. 7 I from his shoulder took, saith he, the burden clean away, And from the furnace set him free from burning brick of clay; 8 When thou in grief didst cry and call I help'd thee speedily; And I did answer thee withal in thunder from on high: 9 Yea, at the waters of discord I did thee tempt and prove, Where thou the anger of the Lord with murmuring didst move. 10 Hear, O my people Israel, what I do promise thee; Regard and mark my words full well, if thou wilt cleave to me. The Second Part 11 Thou shalt no god in thee reserve of any land abroad, And in no wise bow to or serve a strange and foreign god. 12 I am the Lord thy God, and I from Egypt set thee free; Then ask of me abundantly, and I will give it thee. 13 But yet my people would not hear my voice, when that I spake, And Israel would not obey, but did me quite forsake: 14 Then did I leave them to their will, in hardness of their heart, To walk in their own counsels still themselves they did pervert. 15 O that my people would have heard the words that I did say, And Israel with due regard had walked in my way; 16 I should have soon destroy'd their foes, and brought them down full low, And turned my hand against all those, that sought their overthrow; 17 And they that at the Lord did rage as lyars should be found; But for his folk, their time and age should with great joy be crowned: 18 I would have fed them with the crop and finest of the wheat, And made the rock with honey drop, that they their fills might eat.
