METER: SM (66 86)
SUGGESTED TUNE: ST. THOMAS or FESTAL SONG
This is the same meter as the hymns "I Love Thy Kingdom, Lord" and "Rise Up, O Men of God"
1. God watch-es o'er the just,
He list-ens to their cries.
God turns a-gainst those who do wrong,
For-got-ten they shall die.
2. God hears when just ones call;
He res-cues them from woe.
To bro-ken-heart-ed ones he's near;
He saves those with no hope.
3. Trou-bles the right-eous have,
But God saves from them all.
God keeps them full-y in his care,
With-out a bro-ken bone.
4. E-vil be-falls the cruel;
Those who hate just ones shall
Con-demned be. But God saves his own,
Who safe-ty find in him.
