PSALM 62:5-12
METER:  77 77
SUGGESTED TUNES:  ORIENTIS PARTIBUS or JESUS LOVES ME (stanzas only)
This meter is that of such hymns as "Savior, Teach Me Day by Day", "There's a Spirit in the Air", or the stanzas of "Jesus Loves Me."

1.  Qui-et-ly I wait for God,
    My hope is in him a-lone.
    He a-lone pro-tects and saves;
    He de-fends--I shall not fall.
2.  On him my sal-va-tion rests,
    God is my ref-uge and rock.
    Peo-ple, al-ways trust in God,
    Pour your heart out un-to him.
3.  God a-lone gives us ref-uge.
    Poor ones are like puffs of breath,
    Rich folk are on-ly a lie,
    On the scales they're light as breath.
4.  Do not trust in vi-o-lence,
    Hope in rob-ber-y is vain;
    E-ven if you rich-es gain,
    Do not stake your life on them.
5.  More than once I've heard God say,
    Pow'r is his, his love is sure.
    God will re-pay ev-ery-one
    In ac-cord with what they've done.
