Psalm 135

 


[Recommended tunes: St Gregory, Dunfermline, Old 44th]
8,6,8,6

 

1Praise ye the Lord, the Lord's name praise;

his servants, praise ye God.

2Who stand in God's house, in the courts

of our God make abode.

3Praise ye the Lord, for he is good;

unto him praises sing:

Sing praises to his name, because

it is a pleasant thing.

 

4For Jacob to himself the Lord

did chuse of his good pleasure,

And he hath chosen Israel

for his peculiar treasure.

5Because I know assuredly

the Lord is very great,

And that our Lord above all gods

in glory hath his seat.

 

6What things soever pleas'd the Lord,

that in the heav'n did he,

And in the earth, the seas, and all

the places deep that be.

7He from the ends of earth doth make

the vapours to ascend;

With rain he lightnings makes, and wind

doth from his treasures send.

 

8Egypt's first-born, from man to beast

9who smote. Strange tokens he

On Phar'oh and his servants sent,

Egypt, in midst of thee.

10He smote great nations, slew great kings:

11Sihon of Heshbon king,

And Og of Bashan, and to nought

did Canaan's kingdoms bring:

 

12And for a wealthy heritage

their pleasant land he gave,

An heritage which Israel,

his chosen folk, should have.

13Thy name, O Lord, shall still endure,

and thy memorial

With honour shall continu'd be

to generations all.

 

14For why? the righteous God will judge

his people righteously;

Concerning those that do him serve,

himself repent will he.

15The idols of the nations

of silver are and gold,

And by the hands of men is made

their fashion and mould.

 

16Mouths have they, but they do not speak;

eyes, but they do not see;

17Ears have they, but hear not; and in

their mouths no breathing be.

18Their makers are like them; so are

all that on them rely.

19O Isr'el's house, bless God; bless God,

O Aaron's family.

 

20O bless the Lord, of Levi's house

ye who his servants are;

And bless the holy name of God,

all ye the Lord that fear.

21And blessed be the Lord our God

from Sion's holy hill,

Who dwelleth at Jerusalem .

The Lord O praise ye still.
