Full Text

1 Who place on Sion's God their Trust,
Like Sion's lofty Rock shall stand;
Like her, immoveable be fix'd,
Establish'd by his mighty Hand:
Whose strong Foundations stand secure,
And shall for evermore endure.

2 Look how the Hills on ev'ry Side
The fair Jerusalem inclose;
So stands the LORD around his Saints,
To guard them from their Foes:
He shall their strong Protector be,
And from all Danger set them free.

3 The Wicked may afflict the Just,
But they shall not too long oppress,
Or force him by Despair to seek
Unrighteous Means for his Redress;
For GOD, who still remains his Friend,
From Heav'n shall speedy Succour send.

4 Do good, O righteous GOD, to those,
Who do in Goodness take Delight;
The Heart that Innocence retains,
To those thy choicest Blessings give,
Whose Hearts before thee are upright:
The LORD the Wicked shall destroy,
But crown his Saints with Peace and Joy.
