Psalm 125

Words: The Scottish Psalter

Common Metre Tunes

 1  They in the Lord that firmly trust
       shall be like Zion hill,
    Which at no time can be removed,
       but standeth ever still.

 2  As round about Jerusalem
       the mountains stand alway,
    The Lord his folk doth compass so,
       from henceforth and for aye.

 3  For ill men's rod upon the lot
       of just men shall not lie;
    Lest righteous men stretch forth their hands
       unto iniquity.

 4  Do thou to all those that be good
       thy goodness, Lord, impart;
    And do thou good to those that are
       upright within their heart.

 5  But as for such as turn aside
       after their crooked way,
    God shall lead forth with wicked men:
       on Isr'el peace shall stay.
