|62 (1)||Psalm 62 Version 1||CM|
|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|
