1 God guards the good with watchful eye,
His ear attentive to their cry,
Against the wicked sets His face,
From earth their memory to erase.
2 The righteous cry, Jehovah hears,
And rescues them from all their fears;
The Lord draws nigh to broken hearts,
To contrite spirits help imparts.
3 Afflictions on the good must fall,
But God will bring them safe through all;
From harmful stroke He will defend,
And sure and full deliverance send.
4 By evil are the evil slain,
The hope of sinful men is fain;
The wicked, who the righteous hate,
Their condemnation shall be great.
5 The Lord redemption will provide
For all who in His grace confide;
From condemnation they are clear
Who trust in Him with holy fear.
