Psalm 125

jerusalem_aerial_from_se1Those who trust in the Lord
Like Zion stand secure
By trusting Adonai
They ever shall endure.

The Lord surrounds His people
Like mountains ‘round Jerusalem
Shielding the righteous dwelling place
So wickedness can’t rule them.

Do good, O Adonai, to the upright in heart
But banish all who turn aside to their own crooked ways
Remove all evil from our midst
Give peace to Israel all her days.
