Psalter

Psalter 402: 1, 2, 4

Verse 1
O sing ye Hallelujah!
‘Tis good our God to praise;
‘Tis pleasant and becoming
To Him our songs to raise;
He builds the walls of Zion,
He seeks her wand’ring sons,
He binds their wounds and comforts
The broken hearted ones.

Verse 2
The starry hosts He numbers,
He calls them all by name;
His greatness and His wisdom
His wondrous works proclaim;
The meek He lifts to honor
He humbles sinful pride;
Give thanks to Him and utter
His praises far and wide.



Verse 4
No human pow’r delights Him,
No earthly pomp or pride;
He loves the meek who fear Him
And in His love confide;
Then praise thy God, O Zion,
His gracious aid confess;
He gives thee peace and plenty,
His gifts thy children bless.

Psalter 65

Verse 1
Grace and truth shall mark the way
Where the Lord His own will lead,
If His word they still obey
And His testimonies heed.

Verse 2
For Thy Name’s sake hear Thou me,
For Thy mercy, Lord, I wait;
Pardon my iniquity,
For my sin is very great.

Verse 3
He who walks in godly fear
In the path of truth shall go;
Peace shall be his portion here,
And his sons all good shall know.

Verse 4
They that fear and love the Lord
Shall Jehovah’s friendship know;
He will grace to them accord,
And His faithful covenant show.

Psalter 89

Verse 1
Ye children, come, give ear to me
And learn Jehovah’s fear;
He who would long and happy live,
Let him my counsel hear.

Verse 2
Restrain thy lips from speaking guile,
From wicked speech depart,
From evil turn and do the good,
Seek peace with all thy heart.

Verse 3
Jehovah’s eyes are on the just,
He hearkens to their cry;
Against the wicked sets His face,
Their very name shall die.

Verse 4
The Lord may suffer many griefs
Upon the just to fall,
But He will bring them safely through,
Deliv’ring them from all.

Verse 5
By evil are the evil slain,
And they that hate the just;
But all His servants God redeems,
And safe in Him they trust.

Psalter 4


Verse 1
O wherefore do the nations rage,
And kings and rulers strive in vain,
Against the Lord of earth and heav’n
To overthrow Messiah’s reign?

Verse 2
Their strength is weakness in the sight
Of Him Who sits enthroned above;
He speaks, and judgments fall on them
Who tempt His wrath and scorn His love.

Verse 3
By God’s decree His Son receives
The nations for His heritage;
The conqu’ring Christ supreme shall reign
As King of kings, from age to age.

Verse 4
Be wise, ye rulers of the earth,
And serve the Lord with godly fear;
With rev’rent joy confess the Son
While yet in mercy He is near.

Verse 5
Delay not, lest His anger rise,
And ye should perish in your way;
Lo, all that put their trust in Him
Are blest indeed, and blest for aye.

Psalter 241: 1, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9

Verse 1
My song forever shall record
The tender mercies of the Lord;
Thy faithfulness will I proclaim,
And ev’ry age shall know Thy Name.

Verse 3
Behold God’s truth and grace displayed,
For He has faithful covenant made,
And He has sworn that David’s son
Shall ever sit upon his throne.

Verse 5
Who in the heav’nly dwellings fair
Can with the Lord Himself compare?
Or who among the mighty shares
The likeness that Jehovah bears.

Verse 6
With fear and reverence at His feet
God’s holy ones in council meet;
Yea, more than all about His throne
Must He be feared, and He alone.

Verse 8
The swelling sea obeys Thy will,
Its angry waves Thy voice can still;
Thy mighty enemies are slain,
Thy foes resist Thy power in vain.

Verse 9
The heavens and earth, by right divine,
The world and all therein, are Thine;
The whole creation’s wondrous frame
Proclaims its Maker’s glorious Name.

Psalter 316


All men on earth that live,
To God all glory give,
Praise ye the Lord;
His lovingkindness bless,
His constant faithfulness
And changeless truth confess;
Praise ye the Lord.
