1 I trust the Lord for safety;
how can I run away
or seek my refuge in the hills
like birds at close of day?

2 But enemies attack me;
they shoot to pierce my heart;
how can I stay in safety here
when goodness falls apart?

3 The Lord is in his temple;
on high his mighty throne;
his eyes watch over us in love,
to him our ways are known.

4 The Lord is true and faithful,
he guards us by his grace,
and all who trust his righteousness
shall live to see his face.
