WER DA WONET (L.M.D.)

ANGLO-GENEVAN PSALM 91 (L.M.D.)

1. All who with full in-tent and mind
in Love's high peaks by faith do dwell:
whose gra-cious pow-er all shall find
the saf-est place to serve them well.
Now say un-to our God will I,
"O you in-deed are hope most sure:
For God is Love, thus will I cry
my trust in you for-ev-er more!"

2. O all shall cer-tain-ly be-hold
what jus-tice have the self- ish earned;
but when true Love is your strong-hold,
lo, hence to Life the soul is turned.
Then will no dan-gers vis-it you,
nor will your tent or ground-cloth stir;
for come the an-gels forth a-new,
and to their strength all do de-fer.

3. So fierce-ly they shall you de-fend,
that harm you shall be sure of none,
nor you so much as once of-fend,
nor dash your foot a-gainst a stone.
You shall a-mongst the li-ons tread,
the dra-gon and the asp al-so;
O you shall nev-er live in dread,
as you a-mongst them safe-ly go.

4. For so the Sove-reign One a- bove,
bold-ly de-clares, "I know your name."
I thus will lift my praise to Love,
and foes con-found who seek Love's shame.
On me shall Life call when in need,
and I will hear though still in doubt;
in trou-bles I res-pond with speed,
that God be glor-i-fied through-out.

5. The years that shall be Time's de-sire,
that we in grace full-well may spend;
our health and life and love en-tire,
will serve all well and have no end.
All who with full in-tent and mind
in Love's high peaks by faith do dwell:
whose gra-cious pow-er all shall find
the saf-est place to serve them well.
