Fallen is their boasted Chief,

Scatter'd are the Philistines, Scatter'd by a True Belief

Are all my meaner Sins.
10. Rife, ye Men of Israel, rise,

Your routed Foe pursue,
Shout His Praises to the Skies

Sin for You:
Jesus doth for You appear,

He His Conquering Grace affords, Saves You, not with Sword and Spear,

The Battle is the Lord's.

11. Every Day the Lord of Hofts

His mighty Power difplays, Stills the proud Philistine's Boaft,

The threatning Gittite slays : Ifrael's God let All below

Conqueror over Sin proclaim ; O that All the Earth might know

The Power of Jesu's Name.

12. Sin hath tyranniz'd too long

O’er Ifrael's chosen Race, Dar'd defy the feeble Throng,

And all their Armies chase ; Armies of the Living God

Basely they to Sin did yield; Sin can never be destroy'd

Till David takes the Field.

13. Love alone can match in Fight,

And conquer every Foe; Saul with all his Strength and Might

Can never Sin o'erthrow; Saul

may vex (the Law restrain) David takes the Giant's Head, Love will never turn again Till every

Sin is dead.

Romans x, 6, 8C.
