1 On God alone my soul in stillness waits; ♦︎
from him comes my salvation.
2 He alone is my rock and my salvation, ♦︎
my stronghold, so that I shall never be shaken.
3 How long will all of you assail me to destroy me, ♦︎
as you would a tottering wall or a leaning fence?
4 They plot only to thrust me down from my place of honour;
lies are their chief delight; ♦︎
they bless with their mouth, but in their heart they curse.
5 Wait on God alone in stillness, O my soul; ♦︎
for in him is my hope.
6 He alone is my rock and my salvation, ♦︎
my stronghold, so that I shall not be shaken.
7 In God is my strength and my glory; ♦︎
God is my strong rock; in him is my refuge.
8 Put your trust in him always, my people; ♦︎
pour out your hearts before him, for God is our refuge.
