Psalm 92 Part 1

Author: Isaac WattsMeter: in 729 hymnalsScripture: Psalm 92First Line: Sweet is the work, my God, my KingLyrics: Sweet is the work, my God, my King, To praise thy name, give thanks and sing, To show thy love by morning light, And talk of all thy truth at night. Sweet is the day of sacred rest, No mortal cares shall seize my breast; O may my heart in tune be found, Like David's harp of solemn sound! My heart shall triumph in my Lord, And bless his works, and bless his word; Thy works of grace, how bright they shine! How deep thy counsels! how divine! Fools never raise their thoughts so high; Like brutes they live, like brutes they die; Like grass they flourish, till thy breath Blast them in everlasting death. But I shall share a glorious part When grace hath well refined my heart; And fresh supplies of joy are shed, Like holy oil, to cheer my head. Sin (my worst enemy before) Shall vex my eyes and ears no more; My inward foes shall all be slain, Nor Satan break my peace again. Then shall I see, and hear, and know All I desired or wished below; And every power find sweet employ In that eternal world of joy.

It Is Good to Sing Your Praises

Meter: DAppears in 17 hymnalsScripture: Psalm 92Lyrics: 1 It is good to sing your praises and to thank you, O Most High, showing forth your loving-kindness when the morning lights the sky. It is good when night is falling of your faithfulness to tell, while with sweet, melodious praises songs of adoration swell. 2 You have filled my heart with gladness through the works your hands have wrought; you have made my life victorious; great your works and deep your thought. You, O LORD, on high exalted, reign forevermore in might; all your enemies shall perish, sin be banished from your sight. 3 But the good shall live before you, planted in your dwelling place, fruitful trees and ever verdant, nourished by your boundless grace. In his goodness to the righteous God his righteousness displays; God, my rock, my strength and refuge, just and true are all your ways.

Psalm 92 Part 2

Author: Isaac WattsMeter: in 108 hymnalsScripture: Psalm 92:12-15First Line: Lord, 'tis a pleasant thing to standLyrics: Lord, 'tis a pleasant thing to stand In gardens planted by thine hand; Let me within thy courts be seen, Like a young cedar, fresh and green. There grow thy saints in faith and love, Blest with thine influence from above; Not Lebanon with all its trees Yields such a comely sight as these. The plants of grace shall ever live; (Nature decays, but grace must thrive;) Time, that doth all things else impair, Still makes them flourish strong and fair. Laden with fruits of age, they show The Lord is holy, just, and true; None that attend his gates shall find A God unfaithful or unkind.

Psalm 92: To render thanks unto the Lord

Meter: in 24 hymnalsScripture: Psalm 92First Line: To render thanks unto the LordLyrics: 1To render thanks unto the Lord it is a comely thing, And to thy name, O thou most High, due praise aloud to sing. 2Thy loving-kindness to shew forth when shines the morning light; And to declare thy faithfulness with pleasure ev’ry night. 3On a ten-stringed instrument, upon the psaltery, And on the harp with solemn sound, and grave sweet melody. 4For thou, Lord, by thy mighty works hast made my heart right glad; And I will triumph in the works which by thine hands were made. 5How great, Lord, are thy works! each thought of thine a deep it is: 6A brutish man it knoweth not; fools understand not this. 7When those that lewd and wicked are spring quickly up like grass, And workers of iniquity do flourish all apace; It is that they for ever may destroyed be and slain; 8But thou, O Lord, art the most High, for ever to remain. 9For, lo, thine enemies, O Lord, thine en’mies perish shall; The workers of iniquity shall be dispersed all. 10But thou shalt, like unto the horn of th’ unicorn, exalt My horn on high: thou with fresh oil anoint me also shalt. 11Mine eyes shall also my desire see on mine enemies; Mine ears shall of the wicked hear that do against me rise. 12But like the palm-tree flourishing shall be the righteous one; He shall like to the cedar grow that is in Lebanon. 13Those that within the house of God are planted by his grace, They shall grow up, and flourish all in our God’s holy place. 14And in old age, when others fade, they fruit still forth shall bring; They shall be fat, and full of sap, and aye be flourishing; 15To shew that upright is the Lord: he is a rock to me; And he from all unrighteousness is altogether free.

How Good It Is to Thank the LORD

Meter: in 6 hymnalsScripture: Psalm 92Lyrics: 1 How good it is to thank the LORD, to praise your name with tuneful chord, to show your love with morning light and tell your faithfulness each night. Yes, it is good your praise to sing and all our sweetest music bring. 2 O LORD, my song with joy expands before the wonders of your hands. How great the works that you have wrought; how deep, O LORD, your every thought! You make me glad; I sing your praise for all your wondrous works and ways. 3 Though as the grass the wicked grow, those evildoers do not know the endless ruin they will see. But God will reign eternally. All foes will fall before his might; the wicked shall be put to flight. 4 O LORD, you have exalted me with royal strength and dignity. With your anointing I am blest; your grace and favor on me rest. My eyes have seen the wicked die; my ears have heard their hopeless cry. 5 The righteous all will flourish well and in the house of God will dwell. They will be planted like a tree, will still in old age fruitful be. The LORD our God is upright, just; he is my Rock; in him I trust.

Appears in 3 hymnalsScripture: Psalm 92First Line: To Thee, JEHOVAH, thanks to giveLyrics: 1 To Thee, JEHOVAH, thanks to give, It is a comely thing; And to thy name, O Thou most High, loud hymns of praise to sing. 2 Thy loving-kindness forth to show in early morning light, And to declare thy faithfulness with pleasure ev'ry night. 3 Upon the ten string'd instrment, and pleasant psaltery; Upon the harp with solemn sound, and high rais'd melody. 4 For Thou JEHOVAH thro' thy work Hast made me to rejoice; And in thy handy work will I triumph with joyful voice. 5 How wondrous are thy works, O LORD! how deep are thy decrees! 6 The stupid understand not this, nor foolish sinner sees; 7 When sinners spring as grass, and those who work iniquity Do flourish; 'tis that they may be destroy'd eternally. 8 But Thou, O LORD, as sov'reign Judge, for ever shalt remain; And Thou, most high, ev'n over all For evermore shalt reign. 9 For lo thy many foes, O LORD, thy foes shall quite decay; And all who work iniquity shall be dispers'd away. 10 My horn of pow'r, as unicorns, Thou wilt exalt on high; And with fresh oil, from time to time, anointed be shall I. 11 The downfall of my spiteful foes, mine eyes shall see: mine ear Of ill men who against me rise, the fall shall also hear. [2 Part] 12 But like the palm tree flourishing, shall be the righteous one; He shall be like the cedar tree that grows on Lebanon. 13 They that within JEHOVAH's house happily planted are, Within the court-yards of our God shall greatly flourish there. 14 Their fruit they shall when they are grey, continue forth to bring; They shall in fatness grow, and they shall still be flourishing. 15 To show JEHOVAH upright is; He is a rock to me; And that He from unrighteousness is altogether free.
