Psalm 46 - Scottish Psalter 1650

Tune: Stroutwater

"It is well-known that Martin Luther would sing it when he felt discouraged or sore-tried in his fight against Rome. We read that there were moments when Luther would feel something akin to despair, and he would ask with the Psalmist: Why art thou cast down, O my soul? In such hours, he would say to Melanchthon, Come, Philip, let us sing the 46th Psalm and the two friends would sing together."

The Chestnut Mare
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by frost.
