Ephraim the Syrian

1.  Cause to be heard in Thy grace, the tidings of Thy salvation:  for a hearing has been made, a path of passage; our minds have been downtrodden, by messages of terror. 

R., Praises to Thy victory!  Glory to Thy Dominion!

2.  Comfort Thou with profits, though small and scanty, those that have had harvest, of hurt by their labor:  at a time of profit, they have gained but loss.

R., Praises to Thy victory!  Glory to Thy Dominion!

3.  It is manifest that He has stood, portioning wrath upon earth: loss and profit in anger He divided.  There are whom He has cast down of a sudden, and there are whom He has puffed up of a sudden.

R., Praises to Thy victory!  Glory to Thy Dominion!

4.  To teach us that He can, chastise in all ways; when He saw the persecutors, were terrible before mine eyes, He laid me out before my children, and they my beloved chastised me.

R., Praises to Thy victory!  Glory to Thy Dominion!

5.  Lo! He taught me to fear, Himself and not man:  for when there was none to smite us, His wrath gave command of a sudden, and every man stretched himself out, and chastised himself.

R., Praises to Thy victory!  Glory to Thy Dominion!

6.  In like manner that Babylonian, who struck down all kings when he was confident and hoped that there was none to smite him, God caused that by his own hands, he should strike himself down.

R., Praises to Thy victory!  Glory to Thy Dominion!
