Psalm 91

Words: The Scottish Psalter

Common Metre Tunes

   1  He that doth in the secret place
         of the most High reside,
      Under the shade of him that is
         th' Almighty shall abide.
   2  I of the Lord my God will say,
         He is my refuge still,
      He is my fortress, and my God,
         and in him trust I will.
   3  Assuredly he shall thee save,
         and give deliverance
      From subtle fowler's snare, and from
         the noisome pestilence.
   4  His feathers shall thee hide; thy trust
         under his wings shall be:
      His faithfulness shall be a shield
         and buckler unto thee.
   5  Thou shalt not need to be afraid
         for terrors of the night;
      Nor for the arrow that doth fly
         by day, while it is light;
   6  Nor for the pestilence, that walks
         in darkness secretly;
      Nor for destruction, that doth waste
         at noon-day openly.
   7  A thousand at thy side shall fall,
         on thy right hand shall lie
      Ten thousand dead; yet unto thee
         it shall not once come nigh.
   8  Only thou with thine eyes shalt look,
         and a beholder be;
      And thou therein the just reward
         of wicked men shalt see.
   9  Because the Lord, who constantly
         my refuge is alone,
      Ev'n the most High, is made by thee
         thy habitation;
  10  No plague shall near thy dwelling come;
         no ill shall thee befall:
  11  For thee to keep in all thy ways
         his angels charge he shall.
  12  They in their hands shall bear thee up,
         still waiting thee upon;
      Lest thou at any time should'st dash
         thy foot against a stone.
  13  Upon the adder thou shalt tread,
         and on the lion strong;
      Thy feet on dragons trample shall,
         and on the lions young.
  14  Because on me he set his love,
         I'll save and set him free;
      Because my great name he hath known,
         I will him set on high.
  15  He'll call on me, I'll answer him;
         I will be with him still
      In trouble, to deliver him,
         and honor him I will.
  16  With length of days unto his mind
         I will him satisfy;
      I also my salvation
         will cause his eyes to see.
