1 Fools in their hearts say, there's no GOD,
and so corrupt they grow,
Abominable sins commit,
and nothing good they do.
2 From heav'n JEHOVAH looked down
on sons of men, to see
If any who do understand,
or seek to GOD there be.
3 They altogether filthy are;
they all are backward gone;
There are not any that do good,
no verily, not one.
4 The workers of iniquity,
do they not know at all?
That they my people eat as bread,
nor on the LORD will call.
5 Yet they shall with a grievous fear
appalled greatly be,
When GOD among the righteous race
they once shall come to see.
6 The counsel of the poor oppress'd,
ye mock'd and try'd to shame;
Because the LORD their refuge is,
and they hope in his name.
7 Who will from Zion Isr'el save?
when back the LORD shall bring
His captives; Jacob will rejoice,
and Isr'el gladly sing.
