It is in God’s hands. No oppressor can rage against us unless the Lord permits; why then do we fear? He who gives our foe permission to annoy us in measure, holds the other end of his chain and will keep him within bounds. In holy confidence let us stand still and see the salvation of God.
Awake, all-conquering Arm, awake,
And Satan’s mighty empire shake;
Assert the honours of thy throne,
And make this ruin’d world thine own.
