1 LORD, not to us, O not to us -
to your name be the praise,
Because your love and faithfulness
endure, O LORD, always.
2 Why do the nations questions us?
"Where is their God?" they say.
3 Our God inhabits heaven high
and over all holds sway.
4 Their gold and silver images
are crafted carefully,
5 But they have mouths which cannot speak,
and eyes which cannot see.
6 Their noses have no sense of smell;
their ears can hear no sound.
7 They have no feeling in their hands,
nor can they walk around.
Although these idols do have throats,
no word can they proclaim.
8 Their makers and their worshippers
will all become like them.
9 O house of Isr'el, place your trust
upon the LORD alone;
He is the mighty help and shield
of all who are his own.
10 O house of Aaron, trust the LORD;
he is their help and shield.
11 All you who fear him, trust the LORD;
he is your help and shield
