Psalm 131

W. van der Kamp, 1967; rev.

  1. O LORD in whom I do abide,
    My heart and eyes are free from pride.
    I shun great matters, and I flee
    From things too marvelous for me.
  2. But I have set my soul at rest.
    As, sheltered at its mother’s breast,
    A child may linger quietly,
    My soul is quieted in me.
  3. Hope in the LORD, O Israel;
    The just shall in His presence dwell.
    Trust in His mercy, Him adore
    From this time forth and evermore.
