The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God”
They are corrupt, they do wicked things
There is no one who does good

The LORD looks down on the sons of men
To see if there are any who understand
Who seek after God, but they have all gone astray
They’ve all become corrupt
There is none who does good, no, not one

Do evil men know nothing at all?
Who persecute as if that’s what feeds them
They do not call upon the LORD
Because of this, they’re terrified
For God is with the sanctified
The wicked try to thwart the hopes of the poor and the oppressed

But Yahweh is their refuge
He is a shield to all who trust in Him
Yahweh is their refuge
And He says, “When you mess with the poor, you mess with me”
He makes the dreams of the poor come true
The dreams of the poor come true
He makes the dreams of the poor come true
O-o-o-o-o

Oh, that the salvation of the church would come down from heaven
When the LORD sets free the captives
His people will rejoice and His people will be glad
His people will rejoice and His people will be glad
