O Lord thou doest revenge all wrong
Language: English  after the Latin 
O Lord thou doest revenge all wrong,
   That office ’longes to thee:
Sith vengeaunce doth to thee belong,
   Declare that all may see.
Set forth thy selfe for thou of right,
    The earth doest judge and guide:
Reward the proud and men of might,
   According to their pride.

How long shall wicked men beare sway,
   With liftyng up their voyce?
How long shall wicked men I say
   Thus triumph and rejoyce?
How long shall they with brags burst out,
   And proudly prate their fill?
Shall they rejoyce which be so stout,
   Whose workes are ever ill?
