4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;

     7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: 8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) 9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

     10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. 11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.(KJV)

1. O little flock, fear not the Foe 
Who madly seeks your overthrow; 
Dread not his rage and power. 
What though your courage sometimes faints, 
His seeming triumph o’er God’s saints 
Lasts but a little hour. 

2. Be of good cheer; your cause belongs 
To Him who can avenge your wrongs; 
Leave it to Him, our Lord. 
Though hidden yet from mortal eyes, 
His Gideon shall for you arise, 
Uphold you and His Word. 

3. As true as God’s own Word is true. 
Not earth nor hell with all their crew 
Against us shall prevail. 
A jest and byword are they grown; 
God is with us, we are His own; 
Our victory cannot fail. 

4. Amen, Lord Jesus, grant our prayer; 
Great Captain, now Thine arm make bare, 
Fight for us once again! 
So shall Thy saints and martyrs raise 
A mighty chorus to Thy praise, 
World without end. Amen.
