1677 version of a melody in Ravenscroft's Psalter, 1621
1 They in the Lord that firmly trust shall be like Zion hill, Which at no time can be removed, but standeth ever still. 2 As round about Jerusalem the mountains stand alway, The Lord his folk doth compass so, from henceforth and for aye. 3 For ill men's rod upon the lot of just men shall not lie; Lest righteous men stretch forth their hands unto iniquity. 4 Do thou to all those that be good thy goodness, Lord, impart; And do thou good to those that are upright within their heart. 5 But as for such as turn aside after their crooked way, God shall lead forth with wicked men: on Isr'el peace shall stay.
