Psalm of the Day Bread of Life Psalm 124
1If it had not been the Lord who was on | our side—*
let Israel | now say—
2if it had not been the Lord who was | on our side*
when people rose up a- | gainst us,
3then they would have swallowed us | up alive,*
when their anger was kindled a- | gainst us;
4then the flood would have swept | us away,*
the torrent would have gone | over us;
5then over us | would have gone*
the raging | waters.
6Blessèd | be the Lord,*
who has not given us as prey | to their teeth!
7We have escaped like a bird from the snare of the | fowlers;*
the snare is broken, and we | have escaped!
8Our help is in the name | of the Lord,*
who made | heaven and earth.
