     10 And the LORD spake by his servants the prophets, saying, 11 Because Manasseh king of Judah hath done these abominations, and hath done wickedly above all that the Amorites did, which were before him, and hath made Judah also to sin with his idols: 12 Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Behold, I am bringing such evil upon Jerusalem and Judah, that whosoever heareth of it, both his ears shall tingle. 13 And I will stretch over Jerusalem the line of Samaria, and the plummet of the house of Ahab: and I will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish, wiping it, and turning it upside down. 14 And I will forsake the remnant of mine inheritance, and deliver them into the hand of their enemies; and they shall become a prey and a spoil to all their enemies; 15 Because they have done that which was evil in my sight, and have provoked me to anger, since the day their fathers came forth out of Egypt, even unto this day. 16 Moreover Manasseh shed innocent blood very much, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another; beside his sin wherewith he made Judah to sin, in doing that which was evil in the sight of the LORD. 17 Now the rest of the acts of Manasseh, and all that he did, and his sin that he sinned, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah? 18 And Manasseh slept with his fathers, and was buried in the garden of his own house, in the garden of Uzza: and Amon his son reigned in his stead.(KJV)

1. Almighty Lord, before Thy throne 
Thy mourning people bend; 
‘Tis on Thy grace in Christ alone 
Our failing hopes depend. 

2. Dark judgments from Thy heavy hand 
Thy dreadful pow’r display; 
Yet mercy spares our guilty land, 
And still we live to pray. 

3. How changed, alas, are truths divine 
For error, guilt, and shame! 
What impious numbers, bold in sin, 
Disgrace the Christian name! 

4. Oh, turn us, turn us, mighty Lord; 
Convert us by Thy grace! 
Then shall our hearts obey Thy Word 
And see again Thy face. 

5. Then, should oppressing foes invade, 
We will not yield to fear, 
Secure of all-sufficient aid 
When God in Christ is near.
