My soul finds rest in God alone

My soul finds rest in God alone;
on him my help depends.
He is my fortress and my rock;
salvation sure he sends.
My foes conspire to bring me down;
they scorn my troubled state:
their lips are quick to sound my praise,
but in their hearts they hate.

2. Find rest, my soul, in God alone;
on him my hope depends.
He is my fortress and my rock;
salvation sure he sends.
My aid and honour come from God,
my refuge strong and sure:
let all God’s servants trust the Lord;
in him we are secure.

3. The great of earth are less than dust;
all mortal strength is vain;
and fools alone rely on wealth
or prize ill-gotten gain.
I know, O God, that you are strong,
a faithful, loving Lord;
our every deed, both good and ill,
you surely will reward.
