Psalm 124

A Song of degrees of David.

First Version (C.M.)

8,6,8,6

1Had not the Lord been on our side,

may Israel now say;

2Had not the Lord been on our side,

when men rose us to slay;

3They had us swallow’d quick, when as

their wrath ‘gainst us did flame:

4Waters had cover’d us, our soul

had sunk beneath the stream.

5Then had the waters, swelling high,

over our soul made way.

6Bless’d be the Lord, who to their teeth

us gave not for a prey.

7Our soul’s escaped, as a bird

out of the fowler’s snare;

The snare asunder broken is,

and we escaped are.

8Our sure and all-sufficient help

is in Jehovah’s name;

His name who did the heav’n create,

and who the earth did frame.
