33 (2)Psalm 33 Version 2CM
BLEST is the church, where God the Lord
   Has fixed His gracious throne;
Where He reveals His heavenly Word,
    To those He calls His own.
2  His eye, with infinite survey
    Beholds the sons of men;
He formed us all of equal clay,
    And knows our every sin.
3  No king is rescued by the force
    Of armies, from the grave;
Nor power nor swiftness of a horse
    Can the best rider save.
4  Vain is the strength of beasts or men
    To hope for safety thence;
Repentant souls alone obtain
    A certain, sure defence.
5  Lord, let our hearts in Thee rejoice,
    And bless us from Thy throne,
For we have made Thy Word our choice,
    And trust Thy grace alone.
Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
