Psalm 52



1. Why do you boast, you man so mighty,
of all your wickedness?
All day you seek to harm and blight me
while feigning righteousness.
Your treacherous tongue is razor sharp;
the truth you twist and warp.

2. Evil you love far more than merit
and falsehood more than truth.
Sweet sounds your voice to all who hear it,
but though your tongue is smooth,
you love those words that will destroy;
deception is your joy.

3. Surely God will break you forever
and tear you from your tent.
He will uproot all your endeavour;
your cloak of lies he’ ll rend.
He’ll snatch you from your dwelling place;
your name he will erase.

4. Awed by what was most unexpected,
the just will laugh and say,
“This is the man who once rejected
God as his strength and stay.
Look, he on his great wealth relied
but perished in his pride.”

5. Like the olive tree I will flourish
within the house of God.
He will not let the upright perish.
His praise I’ ll shout abroad,
for his unfailing love is sure
and ever will endure.

6. O LORD, I will praise you forever;
in you I hope and trust.
It’s all your doing, God my Saviour;
you give me peace and rest.
I will among the saints proclaim
the goodness of your name!
