The Hallelujah, edited Lowell Mason, 1854 Founded on a phrase in Mendelssohn's Oratorio Christus
1 HE that doth in the secret place
Of the Most High reside,
Under the shade of him that is
The Almighty shall abide.
2 I of the Lord my God will say,
He is my refuge still,
He is my fortress and my God,
And in him trust I will.
3 Assuredly he shall thee save,
And give deliverance
Both from the fowler's snare and from
The noisome pestilence.
4 His feathers shall thee hide; thy trust
Under his wings shall be:
His faithfulness shall be a shield
And buckler unto thee.
5 Thou shalt not need to be afraid
For terrors of the night;
Nor for the arrow that doth fly
By day, while it is light;
6 Nor for the pestilence that walks
In darkness secretly;
Nor for destruction that doth waste
At noon-day openly.
7 A thousand at thy side shall fall,
On thy fight hand shall lie
Ten thousand dead; yet unto thee
It shall not once come nigh.
8 Thou with thine eyes shalt only look,
And a beholder be;
And thou the merited reward
Of wicked men shalt see.
9 For thou, O Lord, art constantly
My refuge and mine aid;
Thou hast the Lord who is most high
Thy habitation made.
10 No plague shall near thy dwelling come;
No ill shaft thee befall:
11 For thee to keep in all thy ways
His angels charge he shall.
12 They in their hands shall bear thee up,
Still waiting thee upon;
Lest thou at any time should'st dash
Thy foot against a stone.
13 Upon the adder thou shalt tread,
And on the lion strong;
Thy feet on dragons trample shall,
And on the lions young.
14 Because on me he set his love,
Deliver him will I;
Because my great name he hath known,
I will him set on high.
15 He'll call on me, I'll answer him;
I will be with him still
In trouble, to deliver him,
And honour him I will.
16 And length of days to his desire
I will on him bestow;
And, in my love, I unto him
Will my salvation show.
