Psalm 91


[Recommended tunes: v 1-8 Spohr, Wiltshire; v 9-16 St Stephen, Eden]



1He that doth in the secret place

of the most High reside,

Under the shade of him that is

th' Almighty shall abide.

2I of the Lord my God will say,

He is my refuge still,

He is my fortress, and my God,

and in him trust I will.


3Assuredly he shall thee save,

and give deliverance

From subtile fowler's snare, and from

the noisome pestilence.

4His feathers shall thee hide; thy trust

under his wings shall be:

His faithfulness shall be a shield

and buckler unto thee.


5Thou shalt not need to be afraid

for terrors of the night;

Nor for the arrow that doth fly

by day, while it is light;

6Nor for the pestilence, that walks

in darkness secretly;

Nor for destruction, that doth waste

at noon-day openly.


7A thousand at thy side shall fall,

on thy right hand shall lie

Ten thousand dead; yet unto thee

it shall not once come nigh.

8Only thou with thine eyes shalt look,

and a beholder be;

And thou therein the just reward

of wicked men shalt see.


9Because the Lord, who constantly

my refuge is alone,

Ev'n the most High, is made by thee

thy habitation;

10No plague shall near thy dwelling come;

no ill shall thee befall:

11For thee to keep in all thy ways

his angels charge he shall.


12They in their hands shall bear thee up,

still waiting thee upon;

Lest thou at any time should'st dash

thy foot against a stone.

13Upon the adder thou shalt tread,

and on the lion strong;

Thy feet on dragons trample shall,

and on the lions young.


14Because on me he set his love,

I'll save and set him free;

Because my great name he hath known,

I will him set on high.

15He'll call on me, I'll answer him;

I will be with him still

In trouble, to deliver him,

and honour him I will.


16With length of days unto his mind

I will him satisfy;

I also my salvation

will cause his eyes to see.
