Hymn/Song Information

The Lord doth know the heart of man and




The Lord doth know the heart of man,
and sees the same full plain,
And he his very thoughts doth scan,
and findeth them but vain.


But, Lord, that man is happy sure,
whom thou dost keep in awe,
And through correction dost procure
to teach him in thy law;


Whereby he shall in quiet rest,
in time of trouble sit,
When wicked men shall be suppressed,
and fall into the pit.


For sure the Lord will not refuse
his people for to take,
His heritage whom he did choose
he will no time forsake;


Until that judgement be decreed
to justice to convert,
That all may follow her with speed
that are of upright heart.


But who upon my part will stand
against the cursed train?
Or who shall rid me from their hand
that wicked works maintain?


Except the Lord had been my aid
my enemies to quell,
My soul and life had now been laid
almost as low as hell.


When I did say, My foot doth slide;
before that I could call,
Thy mercy, Lord, most ready was
to save me from the fall.


When with myself I mus-ed much,
and could no comfort find,
Then, Lord, thy goodness did me touch,
and that did ease my mind.


Wilt thou accustom, Lord, thyself
with wicked men to sit,
Who with pretence, instead of law,
much mischief do commit?


For they consult against the life
of righteous men and good;
And in their counsels they are rife
to shed the guiltless blood.


But yet the Lord is unto me
a sure and strong defense;
To him I flee, because he is
my strength and confidence:


And he shall cause their mischiefs all
themselves for to annoy;
And in their malice they shall fall,
our God shall them destroy.
