They In The Lord That Firmly Trust Shall
They in the Lord that firmly trust
shall be like Sion hill,
Which at no time can be remov’d,
but standeth ever still.
As round about Jerusalem
the mountains stand alway,
The Lord his folk doth compass so,
from henceforth and for aye.
For ill men’s rod upon the lot
of just men shall not lie;
Lest righteous men stretch forth their hands
Do thou to all those that be good
thy goodness, Lord, impart;
And do thou good to those that are
upright within their heart.
But as for such as turn aside
after their crooked way,
God shall lead forth with wicked men:
on Isr’el peace shall stay.
