ELIZABETH RAYMOND-BARKER, 1829-1916
1 HAD not the Lord been on our side,
May Israel now say;
2 Had not the Lord been on our side,
When men rose us to slay;
3 Alive they had us swallowed then
In rage beyond control;
4 The waters had us overwhelmed,
The stream gone o'er our soul.
5 Then had the waters swelling high
Over our soul made way.
6 Blessed be the Lord, who to their teeth
Us gave not for a prey¬∑
7 Our soul's escaped, as a bird
Out of the fowler's snare;
The snare asunder broken is,
And we escaped are.
8 Our sure and all-sufficient help
Is in Jehovah's name;
His name who did the heaven create,
And who the earth did frame.
