Thus can providence so work that the stoutest opponents shall only be too glad to yield.
Let us beware of provoking this terrible God. Let us by faith enlist him upon our side: then we shall have no ground for fear, for all the creatures he has made will be our friends. Fire and water, locusts and flies, darkness and death, were all the allies of Israel. He who is at peace with God has the whole creation enlisted upon his side.
Thus shall the nations be destroy’d
That dare insult the saints;
God hath an arm t’avenge their wrongs,
An ear for their complaints.
Thine honours, O victorious king;
Thine own right hand shall raise,
While we thine awful vengeance sing,
And our Deliverer praise.
