Translation by Matthew Parker, Archbishop (1504 - 1575)

Let God arise in majesty
Language: English  after the Latin 
Let God arise in majesty
And scattered be his foes.
Yea, flee they all his sight in face,
To him which hateful goes.
As smoke is driv'n and com'th to naught,
Repulse their tyranny.
At face of fire, as wax doth melt,
God's face the bad must fly.
