Actually, it should be fairly easy to do a brute force attack by hand if you know the actual words. Think about it, there are not that many combinations. Say you had 3 words A, B and C. You only have to try :

A B C
A C B
B A C
B C A
C A B
C B A

I can't rember much math at my age, but I think if you have N words then you have N Factorial (N!) combinations to try. 6 words is 720 combinations and 7 words is 5040. You should easily be able to set up a batch file to try each in turn. Use something like Excel to create the table.
