Psalm 81, v1, 8-16
Words: Isaac Watts
1 Sing to the Lord aloud, And make a joyful noise; God is our strength, our Savior God; Let Isr'el hear his voice. 2 "From vile idolatry Preserve my worship clean; I am the Lord, who set thee free From slavery and sin. 3 "Stretch thy desires abroad, And I'll supply them well: But if ye will refuse your God, If Isr'el will rebel; 4 "I'll leave them," saith the Lord, "To their own lusts a prey, And let them run the dang'rous road, Tis their own chosen way. 5 "Yet, O! that all my saints would hearken to my voice! Soon I would ease their sore complaints, And bid their hearts rejoice. 6 "While I destroy their foes, I'd richly feed my flock; And they would taste the stream that flows From their eternal rock."
