Representative Text

1 I love Thee, O my Lord, my Might,
My Rock, my Fortress, Saving Power,
My God, my Trust, my Shield in fight,
My great Salvation, my High Tower,
My great Salvation, my High Tower.

2 I to Jehovah lift my prayer,
To Whose great name all praise we owe,
So shall I by his watchful care
Be kept in safety from my foe.
Be kept in safety from my foe.

3 By floods of wickedness distressed,
With deadly sorrows compassed round,
My soul, with mortal pain oppressed,
Within the snares of death was found.
Within the snares of death was found.

4 Distressed I called upon the Lord,
And cried to God my prayer to hear;
My voice He from His temple heard;
My cry ascended to His ear.
My cry ascended to His ear.

5 Lo, then the mountains firm did quake;
The trembling earth throughout its frame
Did from its deep foundations shake.
For He in His fierce anger came.
For He in His fierce anger came.
