Hymn/Song Information

God has released my soul from those that




God has released my soul from those
that did with me contend;
And made a num'rous host of friends
my righteous cause defend.


For he, who was my help of old,
shall now his suppliant hear;
And punish them, whose prosp'rous state
makes them no God to fear.


Whom can I trust, if faithless men
perfidiously devise
To ruin me, their peaceful friend,
and break the strongest ties!


Though soft and melting are their words,
their hearts with war abound;
Their speeches are more smooth than oil,
and yet like swords they wound.


Do thou, my soul, on God depend,
and he shall thee sustain;
He aids the just, whom to supplant
the wicked strive in vain.


My foes, that trade in lies and blood,
shall all untimely die;
Whilst I for health and length of days
on thee, my God, rely.
