PSALM 125, by            
First Line: As sion standeth very firmly stedfast
Last Line: Peace be for ever
Subject(s): Christianity; Zen Buddhism

As Sion standeth very firmly stedfast
Never once shaking, so on high Jehova
Who his hope buildeth very firmly stedfast
Ever abideth.

As Salem braveth with her hilly bulwarks
Roundly enforced, so the Great Jehova
Closeth his Servants as a hilly bulwark
Ever abiding

Though Tyrants hard yoake with a heavy pressure
Wring the just shoulders, but awhile it holdeth
Least the best minded by too hard abusing
Bend to abuses.

As your well workers so the right beleivers
Lord favour farther, but a vain deceiver
Whose wryed footing not aright directed
Wandereth in error

Lord him abjected set among the number
Whose doings lawless study bent to mischeife
Mischeif expecteth, but upon Thy chosen
Peace be for ever
