Scottish Psalter: Psalm 125

Psalm 125: They in the Lord that firmly trust

A Song of degrees.

Meter: C.M. (8,6,8,6)

1 They in the Lord that firmly trust shall be like Sion hill, Which at no time can be remov’d, but standeth ever still.

2 As round about Jerusalem the mountains stand alway, The Lord his folk doth compass so, from henceforth and for aye.

3 For ill men’s rod upon the lot of just men shall not lie; Lest righteous men stretch forth their hands unto iniquity.

4 Do thou to all those that be good thy goodness, Lord, impart; And do thou good to those that are upright within their heart.

5 But as for such as turn aside after their crooked way, God shall lead forth with wicked men: on Isr’el peace shall stay.
