Deliverance Days

orchidee



Tune: Llanfair

('Hail the day that sees Him rise')

Parts of Psalms 16, 17, 18, and 20

*********

The lines are fallen to me - Alleluia!

In pleasant places, here see - Alleluia!

I have goodly heritage - Alleluia!

Inheritance, privilege - Alleluia!

 

I have set the Lord always - Alleluia!

Before me, e'en all my days - Alleluia!

Because He be at my side - Alleluia!

I not be moved, here reside - Alleluia!

 

Keep me as apple of eye - Alleluia!

I to you for refuge fly - Alleluia!

Hide me under the shadow - Alleluia!

Of your wings, safety I know - Alleluia!

 

I will love you, Lord, my strength - Alleluia!

You do help me here at length - Alleluia!

You my rock, my fortress too - Alleluia!

Deliver me, me renew - Alleluia!

 

You my God, my strength, my shield - Alleluia!

I will trust you, to you yield - Alleluia!

You, strength of my salvation - Alleluia!

Tower, stronghold, you the one - Alleluia!

 

From my foe, strong enemy - Alleluia!

He did help, deliver me - Alleluia!

And from them which me hated - Alleluia!

They too strong for me rated - Alleluia!

 

For you will light my candle - Alleluia!

I to you shall on you call - Alleluia!

The Lord God will enlighten - Alleluia!

My darkness, will it brighten - Alleluia!

 

Some trust chariots, horses - Alleluia!

Or ways that be man's courses - Alleluia!

But we will remember sure - Alleluia!

The name of the Lord e'ermore - Alleluia!

 

The Lord lives, blessed be my rock - Alleluia!

I withstood the tempest's shock - Alleluia!

Through him, let Him exalted - Alleluia!

Be, who saves, our living Head - Alleluia!

 

The Lord hear you in the day - Alleluia!

Of trouble, unto Him pray - Alleluia!

The name of God defend you - Alleluia!

Send you help, strengthen, renew - Alleluia!

    reminds me a little bit of LNC's Halleluiah .. it also reminds me just how bad Royal Mail is generally but gets even worse on the run up to xmas festivities .. Neville

      Thanks N. I've run out of A....... now - see, I've run out of them!
      Just when Royal Mail seemed to be getting better (?), with more than one delivery per week round here. Doh!
      I try not to use post that much now, and try to save others using it too (charities, etc) - expensive postage costs.
      A bit like - who writes actual letters these days? I do, but it's a trend from millions of years ago for me, being a very old guinea pig.

      • orchidee
