Fallen is their boasted Chief,
Scatter'd are the Philistines, Scatter'd by a True Belief
Are all my meaner Sins.
Your routed Foe pursue,
Sin for You:
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.
