Representative Text

1 O LORD, how many are my foes!
Against me many rise.
They say of me, "He has no help,
though he on God relies."

2 You are my shield and glory, LORD,
the lifter of my head.
I cried out "LORD! and from his hill
his answer to me sped.

3 I lay down, slept, and woke again;
the LORD sustains my life.
Tho' thousands round me take their stand,
I fear not in the strife.

4 Arise, O LORD, and save me, God!
You punish all my foes.
You smite the face of wicked men,
and break their teeth with blows.

5 Deliv'rance to the LORD belongs,
salvation his alone!
Your blessing on your people, LORD,
forevermore be shown!
