Psalm 33


[Recommended tunes: v 1-5 Irish, Eatington; v 6-11 Caithness, Petersham; v 12-22 St Leonard, Psalm 107]



1Ye righteous, in the Lord rejoice;

it comely is and right,

That upright men, with thankful voice,

should praise the Lord of might.

2Praise God with harp, and unto him

sing with the psaltery;

Upon a ten-string'd instrument

make ye sweet melody.


3A new song to him sing, and play

with loud noise skilfully;

4For right is God's word, all his works

are done in verity.

5To judgment and to righteousness

a love he beareth still;

The loving-kindness of the Lord

the earth throughout doth fill.


6The heavens by the word of God

did their beginning take;

And by the breathing of his mouth

he all their hosts did make.

7The waters of the seas he brings

together as an heap;

And in storehouses, as it were,

he layeth up the deep.


8Let earth, and all that live therein,

with rev'rence fear the Lord;

Let all the world's inhabitants

dread him with one accord.

9For he did speak the word, and done

it was without delay;

Established it firmly stood,

whatever he did say.


10God doth the counsel bring to nought

which heathen folk do take;

And what the people do devise

of none effect doth make.

11O but the counsel of the Lord

doth stand for ever sure;

And of his heart the purposes

from age to age endure.


12That nation blessed is, whose God

Jehovah is, and those

A blessed people are, whom for

his heritage he chose.

13The Lord from heav'n sees and beholds

all sons of men full well:

14He views all from his dwelling-place

that in the earth do dwell.


15He forms their hearts alike, and all

their doings he observes.

16Great hosts save not a king, much strength

no mighty man preserves.

17An horse for preservation

is a deceitful thing;

And by the greatness of his strength

can no deliv'rance bring.


18Behold on those that do him fear

the Lord doth set his eye;

Ev'n those who on his mercy do

with confidence rely.

19From death to free their soul, in dearth

life unto them to yield.

20Our soul doth wait upon the Lord;

he is our help and shield.


21Sith in his holy name we trust,

our heart shall joyful be.

22Lord, let thy mercy be on us,

as we do hope in thee.
