Psalm 62

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

1    My soul with expectation
       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 defence;
       much mov'd 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 patience
       upon thy God alone;
     On him dependeth all my hope
       and expectation.
6    He only my salvation is,
       and my strong rock is he;
     He only is my sure defence:
       I shall not moved be.

7    In God my glory placed 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 oppression,
       in robb'ry be not vain;
     On wealth set not your hearts, when as
       increased 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.
