1 Such as in God the Lord do trust, as Zion mount shall firmly stand, And be removèd at no hand: the Lord will count them right and just, So that they shall be sure for ever to endure.
2 As many mountains huge and great Jerusalem about do close, So will the Lord do unto those who on his Godly will do wait: Such are to him so dear they never need to fear.
3 For though the righteous try doth he, by making wicked men his rod, Lest they through grief forsake their God, it shall not always their lot be. Give, Lord to us thy light whose hearts are true and right.
4 But as for such as turn aside by crooked ways which they out sought, The Lord will surely bring to naught: with workers vile they shall abide; But peace with Israel for evermore shall dwell.
1 Those that do place their confidence upon the Lord our God only, And flee to him for their defense in all their need and misery, Their faith is sure still to endure grounded on Christ the corner-stone; Moved with no ill, but standeth still steadfast like to the mount Zion.
2 And as about Jerusalem the mighty hills do it compass, So that no foes can come to them to hurt that to9wn in any case: So God indeed in ev'ry need, his faithful people doth defend, Standing them by assuredly from this time forth world without end.
3 Right wise and good is our Lord God, and will not suffer certainly The sinner's and ungodly's rod to rest upon his family; Lest they also from God should stray, falling to sin and wicked ness: O Lord, defend both night and day thy little flock, and with them still bless.
4 O Lord, do good to Christians all that steadfast in thy word abide; But such as from the Lord do fall and to false doctrine daily slide. Them will the Lord scatter abroad, with hypocrites thrown down to hell God will them send pains without end; But, Lord, grant peace to Israel.
