Full Text

1 Fools in their heart have said,
There is no God of might;
Corrupt are they and base their deeds,
In evil they delight.

2 God looked from heav'n above
On all the human race,
To see if any understood,
If any sought His face.

3 They all are gone aside,
Corruption doth abound;
There is not one that doeth good,
Not even one is found.

4 These men of evil deeds,
Will they no knowledge gain,
Who feed upon my people's woes,
And prayer to God disdain?

5 The day is drawing nigh
When they shall fear and quail,
For God shall scatter and destroy
Those who His saints assail.

6 Yea, God will put to shame
And make them flee away,
For He will cast them off in wrath
And fill them with dismay.

7 O would that Israel's help
Were out of Zion come!
O would that God might early bring
His captive people home!

8 When God from distant lands
His exiled ones shall bring,
His people shall exultant be,
And gladly they shall sing.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
