149. Confession and Trust

1 On God alone my soul relies,
And He will soon relieve;
The Lord will hear my plaintive cries
At morning, noon, and eve.

2 He has redeemed my soul in peace,
From conflict set me free;
My many foes are made to cease,
And strive no more with me.

3 The living God in righteousness
Will recompense with shame
the men who, hardened by success,
Forget to fear His Name.

4 All treach'rous friends who overreach
And break their plighted troth,
Who hide their hate with honeyed speech,
With such the Lord is wroth.

5 Upon the Lord thy burden cast,
To Him bring all thy care;
He will sustain and hold thee fast,
And give thee strength to bear.

6 God will not let His saints be moved;
Protected, they shall see
Their foes cut off and sin reproved;
O God, I trust in Thee.
