My God, how many are my fears!How fast my foes increase!Conspiring my eternal death,They break my present peace.
The lying tempter would persuadeThere’s no relief in Heav’n;And all my swelling sins appearToo big to be forgiv’n.
But Thou, my glory and my strength,Shalt on the tempter tread,Shalt silence all my threatening guilt,And raise my drooping head.
I cried, and from His holy hillHe bowed a listening ear;I called my Father, and my God,And He subdued my fear.
He shed soft slumbers on mine eyes,In spite of all my foes;I woke, and wondered at the graceThat guarded my repose.
What though the hosts of death and hellAll armed against me stood,Terrors no more shall shake my soul;My refuge is my God.
Arise, O Lord, fulfill Thy grace,While I Thy glory sing;My God has broke the serpent’s teeth,And death has lost his sting.
Salvation to the Lord belongs;His arm alone can save;Blessings attend Thy people here,And reach beyond the grave.
O Lord, how are my foes increased!Against me many rise;How many say, in vain for helpHe on his God relies.
Thou art my Shield and Glory, Lord,My Savior, O Most High,The Lord from out His holy hillGives answer when I cry.
I laid me down and slept, I waked,Because the Lord sustains;Though many thousands compass me,Unmoved my soul remains.
Arise, O Lord; save me, my God;For Thou hast owned my cause;And oft hast beaten down my foesWho scorn Thy righteous laws.
Salvation to the Lord belongs,In Him His saints are blest;O let Thy blessing evermoreUpon Thy people rest.
O Lord, how many theyWho deeply trouble me;How greatly are they multipliedWho do me injury.
There is no help for him,No help in God, they say;Thou art my Shield and Glory, Lord,Thou art my certain Stay.
I called to God, He heardFrom out His holy hill.I fell asleep, I woke in peace,For He sustained me still.
Arise and save, O Lord,For Thou didst smite my foe.Salvation cometh from the Lord;His saints His blessings know.
