The Lord Saves His People
A song for going up to worship. Of David.
1What if the Lord had not been on our side?
(Let Israel repeat this.)
2What if the Lord had not been on our side
when we were attacked?
3When they were angry with us,
they would have swallowed us alive.
4They would have been like a flood drowning us;
they would have poured over us like a river.
5They would have swept us away like a mighty stream.
6Praise the Lord,
who did not let them chew us up.
7We escaped like a bird
from the hunter’s trap.
The trap broke,
and we escaped.
8Our help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.
