How long will you attack a man
And strive to destroy him?
Deceivers, murd’rers, full of plans
Whose hearts are full of sin.
In silence, God, my soul does wait
My hope resides in You
My Rock and Stronghold day by day
Unshaken, I’ll come through.
My safety and my glory rest
On God, my Rock of strength
In Him, at all times, You can trust
Pour out your heart at length.
Don’t place your trust in puny men
Their lives are but a breath
In vain their hope on wealth depends
But soon will end in death.
Hear now the words that God would speak
All power is the Lord’s
So, too, the grace we all would seek
Our trust He thus rewards.
