Eyes Wide Shut

 PSALM 1914

Archduke Franz Ferdinand

A Lament over Widespread Corruption

For the leader. Of David.

1 Fools say in their hearts, "There is no God."
Their deeds are loathsome and corrupt; not one does what is right.

2 The LORD looks down from heaven upon the human race,
To see if even one is wise, if even one seeks God.

3 All have gone astray; all alike are perverse.
Not one does what is right, not even one.

4 Will these evildoers never learn?
They devour my people as they devour bread;
they do not call upon the LORD.

5 They have good reason, then, to fear;
God is with the company of the just.

6 They would crush the hopes of the poor,
but the poor have the LORD as their refuge.

7 Oh, that from Zion might come the deliverance of Israel,
That Jacob may rejoice,
and Israel be glad when the LORD restores his people!
