Lyrics: Anon

Discomfit them, O Lord, that trust to their own multitude and strength,
And forget not that thou art even He, our God,
Which destroyest wars from the beginning,
For the Lord is thy name.
Lift up thine arm, and in thy power bring their power to nought.
Cause their might to fall in thy wrath.
There was never proud person that pleased Thee,
But in the prayer of the meek hath thy pleasure been evermore.
