Security and Safety


Tune: St James (Courteville)

('Thou art the way, by thee alone')

Parts of Psalms 30 to 33


30 v.11

You, Lord, have worked, have turned for me

My mourning to dance free

You have put off my sackcloth* too (*worn in mourning times)

And girded me anew


30 v.11-12

Girded me with gladness, that I

Praise you, to you ally

I shall sing and not be silent

To me you be attent[ive]


31 v.20

You shall hide us in secret place

From enemies we trace

Kept from pride of man, what they say

You our shelter today


31 v.7

You are my hiding place, you shall

Protect me, I fare well

My sings to you they be of praise

You save me, me up raise


33 v.8-9

Let all the earth fear, stand in awe

Of the Lord evermore

For He spake, it was created

All by Him established

      An uplifting hymn demonstrating your strength of faith and the protection it offers. Good afternoon Orchi.

        Thanks Cassie - Hello.

      • Doggerel Dave

        Your songs, orchi have pretty much been examined by all concerned here, with the consensus being that you should (apologies for a lack of subtlety) shut it. So what does the geezer upstairs know that we don't?

        • orchidee

          He knows everything! I can't stop singing/screeching! lol.
