Waiting And Watching


Tune: Deus Tuorum Militum

('Awake, awake, fling off the night')

Psalm 62 parts


Truly my soul on God does wait

He brings me salvation not late

Silently here I meditate

On His words and works, they all great


He only is my rock, and He

Ever shall my salvation be

He my defence, I shall not be

Greatly moved, neither shaken, see


My soul, wait upon God only

For all my hope in him placed be

My expectation is He will

Come to my help, and save me still


In God my salvation, glory

From henceforth and for e'er shall be

Rock of my strength, and my safety

Is in God, He my refuge be
