Psalm 18:3. 30 31 34 35 46. 3d Part. L. M.
Rejoicing in God; or, Salvation and triumph.
Just are thy ways, and true thy word,
Great rock of my secure abode;
Who is a God beside the Lord?
Or where’s a refuge like our God?
‘Tis he that girds me with his might,
Gives me his holy sword to wield;
And while with sin and hell I fight,
Spreads his salvation for my shield.
He lives (and blessed be my rock!)
The God of my salvation lives,
The dark designs of hell are broke;
Sweet is the peace my Father gives.
Before the scoffers of the age,
I will exalt my Father’s name,
Nor tremble at their mighty rage,
But meet reproach and bear the shame.
To David and his royal seed
Thy grace for ever shall extend;
Thy love to saints in Christ their head
Knows not a limit, nor an end.
