62 (1)Psalm 62 Version 1CM
WHEN dangers press and fears invade,
   O let us not rely
On man, who in the balance weighed,
    Is light as vanity!
2  Riches have wings and fly away;
    Health’s glow must soon grow pale;
All strength and vigour shall decay,
    And worldly wisdom fail.
3  But God, our God, is still the same
    As at that solemn hour
When thunders spoke His awful name,
    His majesty and power.
4  And still sweet mercy’s voice is heard,
    Proclaiming from above
That good and gracious is the Lord,
    And all His works are love.
5  Then trust in God, and God alone,
    On Him by faith rely;
For man, and all his works, are known
    To be but vanity.
Harriet Auber, 1773-1862
