1 The foolish man within his heart
blasphemously, hath said,
There is not any God at all,
why should we be afraid?

2 They are corrupt, and they also
a heinous work have wrought,
Among them all there is not one
of good that worketh ought.

3 The Lord looked down from heav'n upon
the sons of men below,
To see if any were that sought
the living God to know.

4 Out of the way they all are gone,
they all corrupted are;
There is not any that doth good,
not one for God doth care.

5 Do not all wicked workers know,
that they do feed upon
My people as they feed on bread?
The Lord they call not on.

6 E'en there they were afraid, and stood
with trembling all dismayed.
When as there was no cause at all
why they should he afraid.

7 For God his bones that thee besieged
hath scattered all abroad,
He hath confounded them, for they
rejected are of God.

8 O Lord, give to thy people health,
and thou, O Lord, fulfill
Thy promise made to Israel
from out of Zion hill.

9 When God his People shall restore
that once were captive led,
Then Jacob shall rejoice therein,
and Israel be glad.
