A song of degrees,
or Psalme of Dauid.
1
If the Lord had not bene on our side, (may Israel now say)
2
If the Lord had not bene on our side, when men rose vp against vs,
3
They had then swallowed vs vp quicke, when their wrath was kindled against vs.
4
Then the waters had drowned vs, and the streame had gone ouer our soule:
5
Then had the swelling waters gone ouer our soule.
6
Praysed be the Lord, which hath not giuen vs as a praye vnto their teeth.
7
Our soule is escaped, euen as a bird out of the snare of the foulers: the snare is broken, and we are deliuered.
8
Our helpe is in the Name of the Lorde, which hath made heauen and earth.
