My soul with expectation doth

Representative Text

1 My soul with expectation doth
depend on God indeed:
my strength and my salvation do
from him alone proceed.
2 He only my salvation is,
and my strong rock is he:
he only is my sure defence;
much moved I shall not be.

3 How long rush ye upon a man,
and him to slay seek all?
To crush hime like a tottering fence,
and as a bowing wall?
4 Only to cast him down they plot, i
in lies they take delight;
and while they with the mouth do bless,
they curse with inward spite.

5 Only on God do thou, my soul
still patiently attend;
my expectation and my hope
on him alone depend.
6 He only my salvation is,
and my strong rock is he;
he only is my sure defence:
I shall not moved be.

7 In God my glory placed is,
and my salvation sure;
in God the rock is of my strength,
my refuge most secure.
8 Ye people, place your confidence
in him continually;
before him pour ye out your heart,
God is our refuge high.

9 Surely mean men are vanity,
and great men are a lie,
in balance laid, they wholly are
more light than vanity.
10 Do ye not in oppression trust,
in robbery be not vain;
set not your hearts when
increased is your gain.

11 God hath it spoken once to me,
yea, this I heard again,
that power to Almighty God
alone doth appertain.
12 Yea, mercy also unto thee
belongs, O Lord, alone:
for thou according to his work
rewardest every one.
