If the Lord had not been for us
If the Lord weren’t on our side
Then when enemies attacked us
They’d have swallowed us alive
Waves of fury and of anger
Like flood-waters o’er our head
Surely they would overwhelm us
And all Israel would be dead.
Bless the Lord who came to rescue
Would not let us be their prey
As a bird escapes the fowlers
We’ve escaped and got away.
Our help comes from the Lord above
Who made the heavens and earth
In Yahweh’s name we find our help
We will declare His worth.
