Psalm 62 (part)

Words: Isaac Watts

Long Metre Tunes

v 5-12
No trust in the creatures; or, 
Faith in Divine grace and power.
   1  My spirit looks to God alone;
      My rock and refuge is his throne;
      In all my fears, in all my straits,
      My soul on his salvation waits.
   2  Trust him, ye saints, in all your ways,
      Pour out your hearts before his face:
      When helpers fail, and foes invade,
      God is our all-sufficient aid.
   3  False are the men of high degree,
      The baser sort are vanity;
      Laid in the balance, both appear
      Light as a puff of empty air.
   4  Make not increasing gold your trust,
      Nor set your hearts on glitt'ring dust;
      Why will you grasp the fleeting smoke,
      And not believe what God has spoke?
   5  Once has his awful voice declared,
      Once and again my ears have heard,
      "All power is' his eternal due;
      He must be feared and trusted too."
   6  For sov'reign power reigns not alone,
      Grace is a partner of the throne:
      Thy grace and justice, mighty Lord,
      Shall well divide our last reward.
