1 My soul finds rest in God alone; 

From him comes my salvation sure. 

My safety, fortress, sheltering rock - 

in him alone I am secure. 

3 How long will you assault a man? 

Do you all seek to lay him low - 

This leaning wall, this tottering fence - 

and bring about his overthrow? 

4 They plan his fall from his high place; 

They take delight in spreading lies. 

With false and flattering mouths they bless, 

But in their hearts curse and despise. 

5 Find rest, my soul, in God alone; 

in him my hope is ever sure. 

My safety, fortress, sheltering rock - 

in him alone I am secure. 

7 My honour and salvation rest

On God, my rock and mighty fort. 

8 O people, trust in him always; 

To him alone pour out your heart. 

9 The low-born man is but a breath; 

the high-born man is but a lie. 

Weighed in a balance, side by side, 

They come to nothing but a sigh. 

10 Do not seek after wealth by force, 

or triumph in ill-gotten gain; 

and even though your good increase, 

set not your heart on what is vain. 

11 My God has spoken; I have heard

12 That you are strong and loving Lord

Each one according to his deeds 

You will assuredly reward.
