Psalm 124

Second Version (10.10.10.10.10.)

10,10,10,10,10

1Now Israel

may say, and that truly,

If that the Lord

had not our cause maintain’d;

2If that the Lord

had not our right sustain’d,

When cruel men

against us furiously

Rose up in wrath,

to make of us their prey;

3Then certainly

they had devour’d us all,

And swallow’d quick,

for ought that we could deem;

Such was their rage,

as we might well esteem.

4And as fierce floods

before them all things drown,

So had they brought

our soul to death quite down.

5The raging streams,

with their proud swelling waves,

Had then our soul

o’erwhelmed in the deep.

6But bless’d be God,

who doth us safely keep,

And hath not giv’n

us for a living prey

Unto their teeth,

and bloody cruelty.

7Ev’n as a bird

out of the fowler’s snare

Escapes away,

so is our soul set free:

Broke are their nets,

and thus escaped we.

8Therefore our help

is in the Lord’s great name,

Who heav’n and earth

by his great pow’r did frame.
