CXXVb. Psalm CXXVb

1 Those that do place their confidence
upon the Lord our God only,
And flee to him for their defense
in all their need and misery,
Their faith is sure still to endure
grounded on Christ the corner-stone;
Moved with no ill, but standeth still
steadfast like to the mount Zion.

2 And as about Jerusalem
the mighty hills do it compass,
So that no foes can come to them
to hurt that to9wn in any case:
So God indeed in ev'ry need,
his faithful people doth defend,
Standing them by assuredly
from this time forth world without end.

3 Right wise and good is our Lord God,
and will not suffer certainly
The sinner's and ungodly's rod
to rest upon his family;
Lest they also from God should stray,
falling to sin and wicked ness:
O Lord, defend both night and day
thy little flock, and with them still bless.

4 O Lord, do good to Christians all
that steadfast in thy word abide;
But such as from the Lord do fall
and to false doctrine daily slide.
Them will the Lord scatter abroad,
with hypocrites thrown down to hell
God will them send pains without end;
But, Lord, grant peace to Israel.
