1 Had not the Lord been Israel's help
When angry foes assailed,
Had not the lord been on our side,
Our righteous cause had failed.
2 Without His help the waters proud
Had overwhelmed our soul,
But, praised be God, the waves or wrath
Are under His control.
3 We are escaped, as from the snare
A bird in safety flies;
The snare is broken and our souls
In liberty arise.
4 Our help is in the glorious Name,
The Name of matchless worth,
Of Him to Whom all power belongs,
The Lord of heaven and earth.
The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
