The Psalms And Hymns Of Isaac Watts by Isaac Watts

PSALM 12 The saint's safety and hope in evil times; or, Sins of the tongue complained of, namely, blasphemy, falshood, etc.

L. M.

The saint's safety and hope in evil times; or, Sins of the tongue complained of, namely, blasphemy, falshood, etc.

Lord, if thou dost not soon appear,

Virtue and truth will fly away;

A faithful man amongst us here

Will scarce be found, if thou delay.

The whole discourse, when neighbors meet,

Is filled with trifles loose and vain;

Their lips are flattery and deceit,

And their proud language is profane.

But lips that with deceit abound

Shall not maintain their triumph long;

The God of vengeance will confound

The flattering and blaspheming tongue.

|Yet shall our words be free,| they cry;

|Our tongues shall be controlled by none:

Where is the Lord will ask us why?

Or say our lips are not our own?|

The Lord, who sees the poor oppressed,

And hears th' oppressor's haughty strain,

Will rise to give his children rest,

Nor shall they trust his word in vain.

Thy word, O Lord, though often tried,

Void of deceit shall still appear;

Not silver, sev'n times purified

From dross and mixture, shines so clear.

Thy grace shall in the darkest hour

Defend the holy soul from harm;

Though when the vilest men have power,

On every side will sinners swarm.
