PSALM 91:9-16
METER:  76 76 D
This is the meter of the hymn "The Church's One Foundation"

1.  Be-cause God is your ref-uge,
    The Most High is your home,
    No e-vil shall be-fall you,
    No scourge come near your tent.
    His an-gels shall watch o'er you,
    They'll guard wher-e'er you go,
    Up-hold-ing you from fall-ing,
    From stum-bling on a stone.
2.  You'll walk on snakes and li-ons,
    And tread them un-der-foot.
    God saves us and pro-tects us,
    Be-cause we know his name.
    He an-swers when we cry out,
    From trou-ble we are saved.
    God shows us his sal-va-tion,
    Through all our live-long days.
