PSALM 34:15-22
METER:  SM (66 86)
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.
