Psalm 124

Calvin Seerveld, 1981

  1. If God the LORD were not our constant help-
    If God the LORD would leave us all alone-
    Then angry foes would swallow us alive!
    Engulfed by hate, we would be tossed and drowned!
    Yes, without God we would be sure to die.
  2. Praise to the LORD God, who did not forsake-
    We slipped like birds free from the hunter’s trap!
    God did not let their teeth tear us like prey-
    The trap is smashed! Yes, we alone escaped!
    Our help is in the name of God the LORD.
