Psalm 124 (1st version)

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

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 swallow'd quick, when as
       their wrath `gainst us did flame:
4    Waters had cover'd us, our soul
       had sunk beneath the stream.

5    Then had the waters, swelling high,
       over our soul made way.
6    Bless'd be the Lord, who to their teeth
       us gave not for a prey.
7    Our soul's escaped, as a bird
       out of the fowler's snare;
     The snare asunder broken is,
       and we escaped 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.
