Psalter 87


Return to the Psalter Page

1. Jehovah from His throne on high
Looks down with clear and searching eye
On all that dwell below;
And He that fashioned heart and mind
Looks ever down on all mankind,
The works of men to know.

2. Not human strength or mighty hosts,
Not charging steeds or warlike boasts
Can save from overthrow;
But God will save from death and shame
All those who fear and trust His Name,
And they no want shall know.

3. Our hope is on Jehovah stayed,
In Him our hearts are joyful made,
Our help and shield is He;
Our trust is in His holy Name,
Thy mercy, Lord, in faith we claim,
As we have hoped in Thee.
