Psalm 61 (part)

Words: Isaac Watts

Short Metre Tunes

Safety in God.
   1     When, overwhelmed with grief,
         My heart within me dies,
      Helpless, and far from all relief,
         To heav'n I lift mine eyes.
   2     O lead me to the rock
         That's high above my head,
      And make the covert of thy wings
         My shelter and my shade.
   3     Within thy presence, Lord,
         For ever I'll abide;
      Thou art the tower of my defense,
         The refuge where I hide.
   4     Thou givest me the lot
         Of those that fear thy name;
      If endless life be their reward,
         I shall possess the same.
