PSALM 62
Common Meter: 8,6,8,6
To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun,
A Psalm of David.
1My soul with expectation
depends on God indeed;
My strength and my salvation doth
from him alone proceed.
2He only my salvation is,
and my strong rock is he:
He only is my sure defence;
much mov'd I shall not be.
3How long will ye against a man
plot mischief? ye shall all
Be slain; ye as a tott'ring fence shall be,
and bowing wall.
4They only plot to cast him down
from his excellency:
They joy in lies; with mouth they bless,
but they curse inwardly.
5My soul, wait thou with patience
upon thy God alone;
On him dependeth all my hope
and expectation.
6He only my salvation is,
and my strong rock is he;
He only is my sure defence:
I shall not moved be.
7In God my glory placed is,
and my salvation sure;
In God the rock is of my strength,
my refuge most secure.
8Ye people, place your confidence
in him continually;
Before him pour ye out your heart:
God is our refuge high.
9Surely mean men are vanity,
and great men are a lie;
In balance laid, they wholly are
more light than vanity.
10Trust ye not in oppression,
in robb'ry be not vain;
On wealth set not your hearts, when as
increased is your gain.
11God hath it spoken once to me,
yea, this I heard again,
That power to Almighty God
alone doth appertain.
12Yea, mercy also unto thee
belongs, O Lord, alone:
For thou according to his work
rewardest ev'ry one.
