Psalter 161

Verse 1
My soul in silence waits for God,
My Saviour He has proved;
He only is my rock and pow'r;
I never shall be moved.

Verse 2
My enemies my ruin seek,
They plot with fraud and guile;
Deceitful, they pretend to bless,
But inwardly revile.

Verse 3
My soul, in silence wait for God;
He is my help approved,
He only is my rock and tow'r,
And I shall not be moved.

Verse 4
My honor is secure with God,
My Saviour He is known;
My refuge and my rock of strength
Are found in God alone.

Verse 5
On Him, ye people, evermore
Rely with confidence;
Before Him pour ye out your heart,
For God is our defense.

Verse 6
For surely men are helpers vain,
The high and the abased;
Yea, lighter than a breath are they
When in the balance placed.

Verse 7
Trust not in harsh oppression's power
Nor in unrighteous gain;
If wealth increase, yet on your gold
Ye set your hearts in vain.

Verse 8
For God has spoken o'er and o'er,
And unto me has shown.
That saving power and lasting strength
Belong to Him alone.

Verse 9
Yea, loving kindness evermore
Belongs to Thee, O Lord;
And Thou according to his work
Dost every man reward.
