Psalm 62

CM (86.86)
Julie Tennent

1My soul in silence waits for God; salvation comes from Him;
2He only is my rock and tow’r; I shall not be shaken.

3How long will you assail a man? Would all you throw him down?
And treat him like a leaning wall, or fence that’s tottering ‘round?

4They plot to thrust him down from his high, lofty place or worse;
They joy in lies; with their mouths bless, but in their hearts they curse.

5Find rest, my soul, in God alone, for my hope is from Him.
6He only is my rock and tow’r; I shall not be shaken.

7For my salvation, glory too, depend on God alone.
He is my mighty rock of strength; my refuge, He alone.

8O people, trust in Him always; at all times, all day long;
Pour out your heart to Him, for God is our sole refuge strong.

9For lowborn men are but a breath, and highborn men a lie;
When on the balance they are weighed, together a breath’s sigh.

10Trust not in greed, oppression, or take hope in robbery;
If wealth increase, don’t set your heart upon its vanity.

11One thing God spoke, two things I heard: that You, O God, are strong;
12And You are loving; giving each what he’s sown all along.
