Lyrics: Psalm 83, v.1-3,13,18

Hold not thy tongue, O God, keep not still silence: refrain not thyself, O God.
For lo, thine enemies make a murmuring: and they that hate thee have lift up their head.
They have imagined craftily against thy people: and taken counsel against thy secret ones.
O my God, make them like unto a wheel: and as the stubble before the wind;
And they shall know that thou, whose Name is Jehovah: art only the most Highest over all the earth.
