Psalm 124 - 1st Version
CORONA | Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
1650 Scottish Psalter
Elizabeth Raymond-Barker, 1829-1916
1 Had not the Lord been on our side, may Israel now say; 2 Had not the Lord been on our side, when men rose us to slay; 3 They had us swallowed quick, when as their wrath 'gainst us did flame: 4 Waters had covered us, our soul had sunk beneath the stream. 5 Then had the waters, swelling high, over our soul made way. 6 Blessed be the Lord, who to their teeth us gave not for a prey. 7 Our soul's escapèd, as a bird out of the fowler's snare; The snare asunder broken is, and we escapèd are. 8 Our sure and all-sufficient help is in JEHOVAH's name; His name who did the heav'n create, and who the earth did frame.
