All-conquering Lord, whom sinners adore,
Remember thy word, and stir up thy power,
Drive Satan before thee, his advocates chase:
Or let them adore thee, or yield to thy grace.

O pity, and spare, and save them from death,
Pluck’d out of his snare, snatch’d out of his teeth;
Almighty redeemer, to whom all things bow,
Cast down the blasphemer, and rescue them now.

O why should he take thy purchase away?
Thy fury awake, and fly on the prey;
Thy purchase recover, that Satan may feel
Thy kingdom is over earth, heaven, and hell.

O answer the prayer of prevalent faith,
In mercy forbear these children of wrath,
And give them repentance, let mercy take place,
