1 There is no God, do foolish men
affirm in their mad mood;
Their drifts are all corrupt and vain,
not one of them doth good.
2 The Lord beheld from heav'n most high
the whole race of mankind,
And saw not one that sought indeed
the living God to find.
3 They went all wide, and were corrupt,
and truly there was none
That in the world did any good,
no, not so much as one.
4 Is all their judgment so far lost,
that all work mischief still,
Eating my people e'en as bread,
not one to seek God's will.
5 When they thus rage, then suddenly
great fear on them shall fall;
For God doth love the righteous men,
and will preserve them all.
6 Ye mock the doings of the poor,
to their reproach and shame;
Because they put their trust in God,
and call upon his Name.
7 But who shall give thy people health
and when wilt thou fulfill
Thy promise made to Israel
from out of Zion hill.
8 For when thou shalt restore again
such as were captive led,
Then Jacob shall therein rejoice,
and Israel be glad.
