20. Unshaken Faith Amid Danger

1 In God will I trust, tho' my counselors say,
O flee as a bird to your mountain away;
The wicked are strong and the righteous are weak,
Foundations are shaken, yet God will I seek.

2 The Lord in His temple shall ever abide;
His throne is eternal, whatever betide.
The children of men He beholds from on high,
The wicked to punish, the righteous to try.

3 The Lord is most righteous, the Lord loves the right,
the evil He hates and will surely requite;
The wicked His anger will drive from their place,
The upright in rapture shall gaze on His face.
