Song of the Week 11 – Psalm 62

Our song of the week post this week is written by Pedro, from our congregation at Newhaven Church. Thanks for sharing this Pedro.

King David’s “Psalm 62”, in this adaptation it was beautifully written by Aaron Keyes and Stuart Townend. Aaron Keyes performs it with passion so people may enjoy each of the words of this hopeful Psalm. “My strength rests in God alone, my rock and salvation”.
Verse 1:
My soul finds rest in God alone
My rock and my salvation
A fortress strong against my foes
And I will not be shaken
Though lips may bless and hearts may curse
And lies like arrows pierce me
I’ll fix my heart on righteousness
I’ll look to Him who hears meChorus:
(And) O praise Him hallelujah
My Delight and my Reward
Everlasting never failing
My Redeemer my God

Verse 2:
Find rest my soul in God alone
Amid the world’s temptations
When evil seeks to take a hold
I’ll cling to my salvation
Though riches come and riches go
Don’t set your heart upon them
The fields of hope in which I sow
Are harvested in heaven

Verse 3:
I’ll set my gaze on God alone
And trust in Him completely
With ev’ry day pour out my soul
And He will prove His mercy
Though life is but a fleeting breath
A sigh too deep to measure
My King has crushed the curse of death
And I am His forever

Bridge:
O praise Him, O praise Him
Hallelujah, hallelujah
O praise Him, O praise Him
Hallelujah, hallelujah
O praise Him, O praise Him
Hallelujah, hallelujah
