43. You Righteous, in the Lord Rejoice

1 You righteous, in the Lord rejoice;
it well becomes the good man's voice
to sing Jehovah's praise.
With harp and hymn of gladness sing,
your gift of sweetest music bring,
to him a new song raise.

2 For upright is Jehovah's word;
and all the doings of the Lord
in faithfulness are wrought.
In justice and in judgment right
the Lord does ever take delight;
with goodness earth is fraught.

3 Jehovah's word the heav'ns has made,
and all the host of them arrayed
his breath has caused to be.
He rolls the waters heap on heap;
he stores away the mighty deep
in garners of the sea.

4 Let all the earth Jehovah fear,
let all that dwell both far and near
in awe before him stand;
for, lo, he spoke and it was done,
and all, with sovereign pow'r begun,
stood fast at his command.

5 He makes the nations' counsels vain,
the plans the peoples would maintain
are thwarted by his hand.
Jehovah's counsel stands secure,
his purposes of heart endure,
forevermore they stand.

6 O truly is the nation blessed
whose God, before the world confessed,
Jehovah is alone;
and blessed the people are whom he
has made his heritage to be,
and chosen for his own.
