Psalm 124

Words: Brady and  Tate, A New Version of the Psalms of David


   1  Had not the Lord (may Israel say)
         been pleased to interpose;
   2  Had he not then espoused our cause,
         when men against us rose:
3,4,5 Their wrath had swallowed us alive,
         and raged without control;
      Their spite and pride's united floods
         had quite o'erwhelmed our soul.
   6  But praised be our eternal Lord,
         who rescued us that day,
      Nor to their savage jaws gave up
         our threatened lives a prey.
   7  Our soul is like a bird escaped
         from out the fowler's net;
      The snare is broke, their hopes are crossed,
         and we at freedom set.
   8  Secure in his almighty name
         our confidence remains,
      Who, as he made both heav'n and earth,
         of both sole monarch reigns.
