Psalm 129 – Great is My Affliction





Great is my affliction, from youth to present day

Yet they have not destroyed my constant yearning to obey

The plowers plowed my back, they made their furrows long

But God in fervent grace has cut the cords to make me strong



May all who hate great Zion, in shame be turned aside

Let them be grass on housetops that will wither soon and die

Where reaper has no bounty, nor sheaves of grain to sell

May blessings fill the faithful in our God’s peace soon to dwell
