Psalm 131 – a lullabye song

O Israel, Hope in the Lord
mp3 | leadsheet


Is there ambition in my heart?

Search, gracious God, and see;

Or do I act a haughty part?

Lord, I appeal to thee.



O Israel, put your hope upon the Lord

From this time forth, forevermore.


I charge my thoughts, be humble still,

And all my carriage mild,

Content, my Father, with thy will,

And quiet as a child.


The patient soul, the lowly mind,

Shall have a large reward:

Let saints in sorrow lie resigned,

And trust a faithful Lord.

word: Isaac Watts
music: Bruce Benedict, 2010
