I’ve found my refuge in the Lord

I’ve found my refuge in the Lord;
how can you say to me,
‘Flee to the mountains like a bird,
for in the shadows, see:
there, ready armed, the wicked hide,
to assail the upright few;
when life’s foundations are destroyed,
what can the righteous do?’

2. The Lord is in his holy place
upon his heavenly throne;
his eye is on the human race,
our very thoughts are known.
The Lord sees what the righteous do:
their faith and life he tests;
he sees the men of violence, too,
and those his soul detests.

3. Upon the wicked he will rain
his searing fires of death,
as when the cities of the plain
were withered by his breath.
For God the Lord loves righteousness,
a righteous God is he;
and those who walk in holiness
his holy face shall see.
