Nisi quia Dominus erat in nobis dicat...

Language: Latin

1 Nisi quia Dominus erat in nobis dicat nunc Israel
2 Nisi quia Dominus erat in nobis cum exsurgerent in nos homines
3 Forte vivos degluttissent nos cum irasceretur furor eorum in nos
4 Forsitan aqua absorbuisset nos
5 Torrentem pertransivit anima nostra forsitan 
pertransisset anima nostra aquam intolerabilem
6 Benedictus Dominus qui non dedit nos in captionem dentibus eorum
7 Anima nostra sicut passer erepta est de laqueo venantium laqueus 
contritus est et nos liberati sumus
8 Adiutorium nostrum in nomine Domini qui fecit caelum et terram

A song of Battle

Language: English after the Latin

If the Lord Himself had not been on our side,
        now may Israel say:
If the Lord Himself had not been on our side,
        when men rose up against us;
Then they had swallowed us up alive,
        when their wrath was kindled against us.
Then the waters had overwhelmed us,
        The stream had gone over our soul:
Then the proud waters had gone even over our soul.

Blessed be the Lord,
        who hath not given us
        as a prey unto their teeth.
Our soul is escaped even as a bird
        From the snare of the fowlers;
The snare is broken,
        and we are delivered.

Our help is in the name of the Lord,
        who made heaven and earth.
