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