1“If the Lord had not been with us,” O let Is-ra-el now say:
2“If the Lord had not been with us, when we were amidst the fray;
3When attackers in their anger would have put us in the grave;
4/5Torrents would have there engulfed us, raging floods swept us away.”
6Bless-ed be the Lord who has not let us be torn from His care.
7Like a bird, we have escaped from out of the cruel fowler’s snare.
For the snare has now been broken; we’ve escaped as in new birth;
8Our help’s ever in the Lord’s name, who made heaven and the earth.
