Verse 1O Lord, how are my foes increasedAgainst me many rise;How many say, In vain for helpHe on his God relies
Verse 2Thou art my shield and glory, Lord,My Savior, O Most High.The Lord from out His holy hillGives answer when I cry.
Verse 3I laid me down and slept, I waked,Because the Lord sustains;Tho’ many thousands compass me,Unmoved my soul remains.
Verse 4Arise, O Lord; save me, my God;For Thou hast owned my cause,And oft hast beaten down my foesWho scorn Thy righteous laws.
Verse 5Salvation to the Lord belongs,In Him His saints are blest;O let Thy blessing evermoreUpon Thy people rest.
