Psalm 14 T.S.
Words: Sternhold and Hopkins, The Whole Book of Psalms Collected into English Metre
1 There is no God, do foolish men affirm in their mad mood; Their drifts are all corrupt and vain, not one of them doth good.
2 The Lord beheld from heav'n most high the whole race of mankind, And saw not one that sought indeed the living God to find.
3 They went all wide, and were corrupt, and truly there was none That in the world did any good, no, not so much as one.
4 Is all their judgment so far lost, that all work mischief still, Eating my people e'en as bread, not one to seek God's will.
5 When they thus rage, then suddenly great fear on them shall fall; For God doth love the righteous men, and will preserve them all.
6 Ye mock the doings of the poor, to their reproach and shame; Because they put their trust in God, and call upon his Name.
7 But who shall give thy people health and when wilt thou fulfill Thy promise made to Israel from out of Zion hill.
8 For when thou shalt restore again such as were captive led, Then Jacob shall therein rejoice, and Israel be glad.
