Original text and translations
1. Why do nations rage together
why in vain do they conspire?
Rulers of earth's vast dominions
light the skies with martyrs' fires.
Truth mistaken, God forsaken
banes of righteousness arise;
Yet shall they reap sore displeasure,
sure defeat before God's eyes.
2. To the children of the promise
God shall give his throne this day;
With a scepter forged of iron
they shall dash their foes as clay.
Faith revealing, humbly kneeling,
quench the fire and sheath the sword,
For God's wrath is quickly kindled;
blest are they who serve the Lord.
