Psalm 120

Words: The Scottish Psalter

Common Metre Tunes

A Song of Ascents

 1  In my distress to God I cried,
       and he gave ear to me.
 2  From lying lips, and guileful tongue,
       O Lord, my soul set free.
 3  What shall be giv'n thee? or what shall
       be done to thee, false tongue?
 4  Ev'n burning coals of juniper,
       sharp arrows of the strong.
 5  Woe's me that I in Mesech am
       a sojourner so long;
    That I in tabernacles dwell
       to Kedar that belong.
 6  My soul with him that hateth peace
       hath long a dweller been.
 7  I am for peace; but when I speak,
       for battle they are keen.
