1If the Lord had not been with us – O, let Israel now say;
2If the Lord had not been with us, when we were amidst the fray.
3When attackers in their anger would have put us in the grave;
4/5 Torrents would have there engulfed us; raging floods swept us away.
6Blessed be the Lord who has not let us be torn from His care;
7Like a bird, we have escaped from out the angry fowler’s snare.
For the snare has now been broken; we’ve escaped as like new birth;
8Our help’s in the name of Yahweh, Maker of the heav’n and earth.
