Psalm 129 N.
Words: Sternhold and Hopkins, The Whole Book of Psalms Collected into English Metre
1 Oft they, now Israel may say, me from my youth assailed; Oft they assailed me from my youth, yet never have prevailed.
2 Upon my back the plowers plowed, and furrows long did cast: The righteous Lord hath cut the cords of wicked men at last.
3 They that hate me shall be ashamed and turnèd back also, And made as grass upon the house which withers ere it grow:
4 Whereof the mower cannot find enough to fill his hand; Nor can he fill his lap that goes to glean upon the land:
5 Nor passers-by pray God on them to let his blessing fall; Nor say, We bless you in his Name, who is Lord over all.
