322. Call Jehovah Your Salvation

1 Call Jehovah your salvation,
Rest beneath th' Almighty's shade,
In his secret habitation
Dwell, nor ever be dismayed:
There no tumult can alarm you,
You shall dread no hidden snare;
Guile nor violence can harm you,
In eternal safeguard there.

2 From the sword at noonday wasting,
From the noisome pestilence,
In the depth of midnight blasting,
God shall be your sure defense:
He shall charge his angel legions
Watch and ward o'er thee to keep;
Though you walk through hostile regions,
Though in desert wilds you sleep.

3 Since, with pure and firm affection,
You on God hast set your love,
With the wings of his protection
He will shield you from above:
You shall call on him in trouble,
He will hearken, he will save;
Here for grief reward you double,
Crown with life beyond the grave.
