Easy Play Psalm 124
2014 BOOK OF PRAISE OF THE CANADIAN REFORMED CHURCHES
1. What if the LORD had not been on our side?
Let Israel declare this far and wide:
If when our foes attacked in bitter strife,
the LORD our God had not been on our side,
they surely would have swallowed us alive.
2. Without the help of God, of him who saves,
fierce torrents would have swept us to our graves.
Yes, if the LORD had not been merciful,
we would have perished in the roaring waves.
The raging waters would have drowned us all.
3. God rescued us from teeth that rip and tear.
Praise him who broke the fowler’s deadly snare.
We have escaped, are free now like a bird.
Our help comes from the LORD who hears our prayer,
from him who shaped creation by his word.
