Psalter 96

Verse 1
Rest in the Lord and be thou still,
With patience wait His holy will,
Enduring to the end.
Fret not tho' sinners' gains increase;
Forsake thy wrath, from anger cease;
It will to evil tend.

Verse 2
The evildoer soon shall die,
But those that on the Lord rely
Shall all the land obtain;
A little while and thou shalt see
That wicked men cut off shall be,
They shall be sought in vain.

Verse 3
Yea, thou shalt soon consider well
The place where they were wont to dwell,
And is shall not be found;
But saints shall all the land possess,
And find delight and happiness
Where fruits of peace abound.

Verse 4
The vile may plot against the just
Who in the Lord Jehovah trust,
But God will scorn them all;
The Lord their coming day shall see,
When broken all their pow'r shall be,
And ruin on them fall.
