Text Based On Colossians Chapter 2 (KJV)
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy
and vain deceit, after the tradition of men,
Words: From The Psalter: 1912
Music: Thomas Jackson: 1715-1781
Jackson (C.M.) v4/C
DO YE, O MEN, SPEAK RIGHTEOUSNESS?
Do ye, O men, speak righteousness
And upright judgment mete?
Nay, in your hearts is wickedness,
And in your hands deceit.
The wicked, from their earliest days,
In sin are gone astray,
With froward heart, in foolish pride,
From wisdom turned away.
The God of vengeance will destroy
The wicked from His sight;
The Lord will bring to naught their power
And scatter all their might.
The good shall triumph and rejoice,
And this shall be confessed:
On earth the God of justice reigns,
And righteousness is blest.
