The Lord is just in his ways all

The Lord is just in his ways all

Representative Text

17 The Lord is just in his ways all,
and holy in his works each one.
18 He’s near to all that on him call,
who call in truth on him alone.

19 The Lord will the desire fulfil
of such as truly do him fear:
in time of need them save he will,
for hi their earnest cry will hear.
20 The Lord keeps all in faithfulness,
that bear to him a loving heart:
but workers all of wickedness
destroy will he, and quite subvert.

21 My mouth the praises of the Lord
shall therefore constantly proclaim:
let all flesh with one accord
for ever bless his holy name.
