O Lord how are my foes increased who




O Lord, how are my foes increased
who vex me more and more!
They break my heart when as they say,
God can him not restore.


But thou, O Lord, art my defense,
when I am hard bestead;
My worship and my honor both
and thou hold'st up my head.


Then with my voice unto the Lord
I did both call and cry;
And he out of his holy hill
did here me instantly.


I laid me down, and quietly
I slept, and rose again;
For why? I know assuredly,
The Lord did me sustain.


If thousands up against me rise,
I will not be afraid;
For thou art still my Lord and God,
My Savior and my aid.


Rise up therefore, save me, my God!
To thee I make my prayer;
For thou hast broke the cheeks and teeth
Of all that wicked are.


Salvation only doth belong
to thee, O Lord, above;
Who on thy people dost bestow
thy blessing and thy love.
