76c. Qui confidunt

Those that do place their confidence
Upon the Lord our God onely,
And flie to him for their defence,
in all their need and misery:
Their faith is sure still to endure,
Grounded on Christ the corner-stone;
Mov'd with none ill, but standeth still,
Stedfast like to the mount Sion.

And as about Jerusalem,
The mighty hils do it compasse,
So that no enemies can come to them,
to hurt that towne in any case:
So God indeed in every need,
his faithfull people doth defend,
Standing them by assuredly,
from this time forth world without end.

Right wise and good is our Lord God
And will not suffer certainly,
The sinners and ungodlies rod
To tarry upon his family.
Lest they also from God should go,
Falling to sin and wickednesse:
O Lord defend world without end
Thy Christian flock through thy goodness.

O Lord do good to Christians all,
that stedfast in thy Word abide:
Such as willingly from God fall,
And to false doctrine daily slide,
Such will the Lord scatter abroad,
With hypocrites thrown down to hell,
God will them send paines without end:
But Lord grant peace to Israel.

Glory to God the Father of might,
And to the Son our Saviour,
And to the Holy Ghost whose light
Shine in our hearts, and us succour,
That the right way from day to day
We may walk, and him glorifie:
With hearts desire all that are here
Worship the Lord, and Amen cry.
