Full Text

1 The righteous cry unto the Lord,
He unto them gives ear;
And they out of their troubles all
By Him delivered are.

The angle of the Lord encampeth round
About them that fear Him,
The angel of the Lord encampeth round about
Encampeth round about them that rear Him.

2 The Lord is ever nigh to them
That are of broken heart;
To those of contrite spirit
He salvation doth impart. [Refrain]

3 The troubles that afflict the just
In number many be;
But yet Jehovah from them all
Doth save and set him free. [Refrain]

4 Ill shall the wicked slay; laid waste
Shall be who hate the just;
The Lord redeems His servant’s souls;
None perish that Him trust. [Refrain]
