Psalm 62

My soul with expectation
depends on God indeed;
My strength and my salvation doth
from him alone proceed

He only my salvation is,
and my strong rock is he:
He only is my sure defense;
much mov’d I shall not be.

Surely mean men are vanity,
and great men are a lie;
In balance laid, they wholly are
more light than vanity.

Trust ye not in oppression,
in robb’ry be not vain;
On wealth set not your hearts, when as
increased is your gain.

God hath it spoken once to me,
yea, this I heard again,
That power to Almighty God
alone doth appertain.

Yea, mercy also unto thee
belongs, O Lord, alone;
For thou according to his work
rewardest ev’ry one.

Scottish Psalter, 1650
