Psalm 62

Only on God do thou, my soul

Tune: HOWARD (Stevenson)
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Only on God do thou, my soul,
still patiently attend;
my expectation and my hope
on him alone depend.

2 He only my salvation is,
and my strong rock is he;
he only is my sure defence:
I shall not movèd be.

3 In God my glory placèd is,
and my salvation sure;
in God the rock is of my strength,
my refuge most secure.

4 Ye people, place your confidence
in him continually;
before him pour ye out your heart;
God is our refuge high.
