Psalm 124. Nisi quia Dominus.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Twenty-seventh Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. If the Lord had not been on our side, *
    let Israel now say;
  2. If the Lord had not been on our side, *
    when enemies rose up against us;
  3. Then would they have swallowed us up alive *
    in their fierce anger toward us;
  4. Then would the waters have overwhelmed us *
    and the torrent gone over us;
  5. Then would the raging waters *
    have gone right over us.
  6. Blessed be the Lord! *
    he has not given us over to be a prey for their teeth.
  7. We have escaped like a bird from the snare of the fowler; *
    the snare is broken, and we have escaped.
  8. Our help is in the Name of the Lord, *
    the maker of heaven and earth.
