PSALM 9 - Thorpe Tune

He is protector of the poor
What time they be oppressed
He is in all adversity
Their refuge and their rest

The wicked and deceitful men
Go down to hell below
And all the people of the world
That God refuse to know.

But sure the Lord will not forget
The poor man’s grief and pain
The patient people never look
For help of him in vain.
