We have heard with our ears, O God,
Our fathers have told us:
We have heard with our ears, O God,
Our fathers have told us:
What Thou hast done in their time of old, in their time of old.
We have heard with our ears, O God,
Our fathers have told us:
What Thou hast done in their time of old.
We have heard with our ears, O God,
What Thou hast done in their time of old.

How Thou hast driven out the heathen from the land,
And planted them in:
How thou hast destroyed the nations,
And cast them out,
How Thou hast destroyed the nations,
How thou hast destroyed the nations,
And cast them out,
For they gat not the land in possession through their own sword:
Neither was it their own arm that helped them,
For they gat not the land in possession through their own sword:
But Thy right hand, and Thine arm,
And the light of Thy countenance,
The light of Thy countenance,
But Thy right hand, and Thine arm,
Because Thou hadst a favour unto them.
Full Choir
But Thy right hand, and Thine arm,
And the light of Thy countenance,
Because Thou hadst a favour unto them,
Because Thou hadst a favour unto them.
Thou art my King, O God:
Send help unto Jacob,
Send help unto Jacob, unto Jacob,
Thou art my King,
Thou art my King, O God,
Thou art my King, O God,
Thou art my King, my King, O God,
Thou art my King, my King, O God,
Send help unto Jacob,
Send help unto Jacob,
Send help unto Jacob,
Thou art my King, my King, O God,
Thou art my King, my King, O God,
Send help unto Jacob,
Send help unto Jacob,
Send help unto Jacob.
Thou art my King, my King, O God,
Send help unto Jacob.
