664. Call Jehovah Your Salvation

1 Call Jehovah your salvation,
rest beneath th'Almighty's shade;
in his secret habitation
dwell, and never be dismayed:
there no tumult shall alarm you,
you shall dread no hidden snare:
guile nor violence can harm you,
in eternal safeguard there.

2 From the sword at noon-day wasting,
from the noisome pestilence,
in the depth of midnight blasting,
God shall be your sure defense:
he shall charge his angel legions
watch and ward o'er you to keep;
though you walk through hostile regions,
though in desert wilds you sleep.

3 Since, with pure and firm affection
you on God have set your love,
with the wings of his protection
he will shield you from above:
you shall call on him in trouble,
he will hearken, he will save;
here for grief reward you double,
crown with life beyond the grave.
