Representative Text

1 Like Zion's steadfast mount are they
Who in the Lord confide;
Secure, immovable they stand,
Forever to abide.

2 As round about Jerusalem
The mountains give defense,
Jehovah is His people's guard,
Their lasting confidence.

3 No tyrant's scepter o'er the good
Shall undisturbed abide,
Lest righteous men, oppressed by wrong,
To evil turn aside.

4 O Thou Jehovah, to the good
Thy goodness now impart,
Thy loving-kindness show to them
That upright are in heart.

5 All those that turn from righteousness
With wayward, wandering feet,
With sinners God will lead them forth,
The sinner's doom to meet.

6 O Thou Who art Thy people's shield,
Their helper and their guide,
Upon them let Thy grace and peace
For evermore abide.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
