 1.  'Twas not a foe who did deride,
        for that I could endure;
     No hater thus who rose in pride,
        else would I hide secure.
     But thou it was, my friend and guide;
        we did as equals meet;
     We walked to God's house side by side,
        and counsel blended sweet.

 2.  His speech more smooth than butter was,
        yet in his heart was war;
     More soft than oil his words appear,
        yet sharp as drawn swords were they.
     But Lord Thou will in judgment sit
        and bring them down to woe;
     And in the deep and darksome pit,
        in ruin lay them low.

 3.  Death shall them seize, and to the tomb,
        a live they shall go down;
     For wickedness is in their home;
        among them abound their sins.
     But as for me, I'll call on God;
        the Lord will safety give;
     He'll hear me when I cry aloud,
        at morning, noon and night.
