Gerard Lyr Add: Who Is The Man? (2) RE: Lyr Add: Who Is The Man? 16 Jul 03

Here are the other two (2) verses to Who Is The Man?

Jehovah's angel camp doth lay
'bout them that fear him; and frees them.
Tast ye and see that good is JAH:
O bless man, that hopes in him.
Fear ye Jehovah, saints of His:
For to his fearers, want none is.

Evil shall cause the wicked die:
And haters of the just man, they
Shall be condemned as guilty.
His servants soul, redeem doth JAH:
And they shall not be judged unjust,
All that in him for safety trust.

Notes: "The melody of 'Who Is The Man?' is an ancient European folk-song which served Luther in 1539 for his chorale version of the Lord's Prayer. J.S. Bach treated it in fully a dozen different ways and included it in the score of his 'passion according to St. John.'"

Taken from "A Treasury Of American Song" by Olin Downes and Elie Siegmeister, 1940, 1943; pp. 26-27
