Hymn-poem based on Psalm 33 v.8 - 22, to the tune: All Saints Hymn example: Who are these like stars appearing?

Providence Protection

Let all the earth now the Lord fear
All stand in awe of Him, hear
For He spake His word, creative
That word sure, that all may live
He commanded, it stood fast
What He makes does ever last

Heathen's counsel He brings to nought
Their devices He has fraught
But His counsel stands for ever
Unmoving, changes never
The thoughts of His heart do span
To all peoples, every man

Blessed the nation whose God He is
The Lord of all, we know this
And blessed too the people chosen
By Him, He comforts them then
Chosen, His inheritance
Let us to Him draw near hence

The Lord down from heaven does look
All does see, we not forsook
From His heaven, His habitation
He views all, every nation
Fashioning our hearts alike
With His favour, no dislike

But not trust in man's own power
The Lord shall save every hour
Vain the plans, the plots, man's making
They shall not men victory bring
But the Lord their help, their shield
He will aid, strength to them sealed

The eye of the Lord upon who
Will trust Him, He will renew
Such as fear Him, hope in Him sure
He will deliver, assure
And so the outcome shall be
Joy, mercy, grace do we see

"But not trust in man's own power
The Lord shall save every hour"

These words are especially truthful.

Great read!
