Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

PXXXIII. Ye just in God rejoice

1 Ye just in God rejoyce,
Praise well th' upright doth suit.
2 Praise God with harp, with psalt'ry sing
To him on ten string'd lute.
3 A new song sing to him,
aloud play skilfully:
4 Because Jehovah's word is right,
His works all verity.

5 He loveth righteousness,
And also equity,
The earth is fully furnish'd with
The Lord's benignity.
6 For by jehovah's word
The heavens had their frame;
And by th' spirit of his mouth,
All th' armies of the same.

7 The waters of the sea
He gathers as a heap:
Together as in store-houses
He layeth up the deep.
8 All men throughout the earth,
Let them Jehovah fear;
Let all the dwellers of the world
Unto him rev'rence bear.
9 Because he did but speak
The word, and it was made;
He did give out commandement,
And it was firmly staid.

10 The Lord doth bring to night
The heathen counsel wise;
He makes to be of none effect
What people do devise.
11 The counsel of the Lord
Abide for ever shall:
The cogitations of his heart
To generations all.

12 O blessed nation,
Whose God Jehovah is;
And people whom for heritage
He chosen hat for his.
13 The Lord from heaven looks,
All sons of men views well
14 Look from his dwelling place doth he
To all on earth that dwell.

15 The hearts of every one
Alike he doth them frame,
And all their operations
He well doth mind the same.
16 By multitude of hosts
No king himself doth save,
Nor yet by multitude of strength
They strong deliverance have.

17 A horse a vain thing is
to be a saviour;
Nor shall he work deliverance
By greatness of his pow'r.
18 On them that do him fear,
Lo is Jehovah's eye,
Upon them that do place their hope
On his benignity.

19 To save alive in death,
Their soul from death to free.
20 Our soul doth for Jehovah wait;
Our help and shield is he.
21 For our heart joys in him,
In's holy name trust we:
Thy mercy Lord, let be on us
Like as we trust in thee.
