My Soul Finds Rest In God Alone by Matt Searles

I have posted couple of other songs based on Psalm 62 here and here.
The words themselves invite frequent revisitation, and minister afresh each time they are meditated upon.
This version is by Matt Searles.

The lyrics:
1.
My soul finds rest in God alone
Salvation comes from him my rock
My one defence against the foe
He holds me firm no more to fall
How long O men will you attack
And break me down, and crush my soul
Their words are sweet but in their hearts
They feed on lies and curse the Lord
2.
Find rest my soul in God alone
The source of all my joy and hope
My one defence against the foe
He holds me firm no more to fall
The Lord most high sustains my life
A place of peace amidst the waves
O put your trust in God our rock
Pour out your hearts and know his grace
3.
How frail is man, just like a breath
Both rich and poor arise and fall
When wealth may come, preserve your hearts
Don’t set your hope on earthly gold
One thing O Lord you said to me
That you are good and you are strong
You will reward to every man
According to the things we’ve done
