Nisi quia Dominus
1 If the Lord himself had not been on our side, now may Israel say:*
if the Lord himself had not been on our side, when men rose up against us,
2 Then would they have swallowed us up alive,*
when they were so wrathfully displeased with us;
3 Then the waters would have drowned us, and the torrent gone over us;*
then the raging waters would have gone clean over us.
4 But praised be the Lord,*
who has not given us over to be prey for their teeth.
5 We escaped like a bird out of the snare of the fowler;*
the snare is broken, and we have been delivered.
6 Our help is in the Name of the Lord,*
the maker of heaven and earth.
