Psalter 352

Verse 1
Had not the Lord been Israel's help
When angry foes assailed,
Had not the Lord been on our side,
Our righteous cause had failed.

Verse 2
Without His help the waters proud
Had overwhelmed our soul,
But, praised be God, the waves of wrath
Are under His control.

Verse 3
We are escaped, as from the snare
A bird in safety flies;
The snare is broken and our souls
In liberty arise.

Verse 4
Our help is in the glorious Name,
The Name of matchless worth,
Of Him to Whom all pow'r belongs,
The Lord of heav'n and earth.
