Geistliche Lieder, Leipzig, 1545
1 HELP, Lord, because the godly man
Doth daily fade away;
And from among the sons of men
The faithful do decay.
2 Unto his neighbour every one
Doth utter vanity:
They with a double heart do speak,
And lips of flattery.
3 God shall cut off all flattering lips,
Tongues that speak proudly thus,
4 Our tongues prevail; our lips are ours:
Who is lord over us?
5 For the oppression of the poor,
For him in need that sighs,
To save him from his scornful foes,
God saith, I will arise.
6 Jehovah's words are words most pure;
They are like silver tried
In earthen furnace, seven times
That hath been purified.
7 Lord, thou shalt them preserve and keep
For ever from this race.
8 On all sides walk the wicked, when
Vile men are high in place.
