1 aIf it had not been the Lord who was on our side,
bNow may Israel say;
2 aIf it had not been the Lord who was on our side,
When men rose up against us:
When their wrath was kindled against us:
The stream had gone over our soul:
Had gone over our soul.
Who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.
7 Our soul is escaped as a bird fout of the snare of the fowlers:
The snare is broken, and we are escaped.
8 gOur help is in the name of the Lord,
hWho made heaven and earth.
