Hymnal: PHSS1742 #288 (1742) Scripture: Exodus 15 First Line: I to the Lord will sing Lyrics: 1 I to the Lord will sing, for he
Triumph'd in glory so;
He both the horse and rider down
Into the sea did throw.
2 Jah is my strength and song, and he
Is my salvation:
He is my God, I'11 him prepare
My father's God he is also,
I'll him exalt: the same
3 Jehovah is a man of war,
Jehovah is his name.
4 He Pharaoh's chariots and his host
Into the sea hath cast.
His chosen captains drowned were
As the red fen they pass'd,
5 The depths them hid, to th' bottom they
Like as a stone sunk down.
6 Jehovah, thy right hand in pow'r
Most glorious is renown'd.
Lord, thy right hand in pieces dash'd
Those that against thee rose.
7 And in thy excellency great,
Thou haft o'erthrown thy foes.
Thou did'st send forth thy wrath, which as
The stubble did them waste.
8 Together gather'd were the waves
Ev'n with thy nostrils blast:
The floods stood upright as an heap,
The depths in mid-sea froze.
9 The foe said, I'll pursue, I'll take,
I will the spoil dispose.
My lust on them shall filled be,
My sword draw out will I:
My hand shall them again possess,
Or wholly them destroy.
10 Thou with thy wind didst on them blow,
The sea them covered soon:
They in the mighty waters sunk,
Like lead sunk quickly down.
11 Lord, who's like thee among the gods,
Who like thee, glorious
In holiness, fearful in praise,
In doings marvellous!
12 When thou didst forth thy right hand stretch
The earth them swallowed.
13 The people whom thou hast redeemed,
Thou hast in mercy led.
Thou by thy strength shalt guide them to
That holy seat of thine.
14 The folk shall hear and fear, and grieve
Shall they of Palestine.
15 Then Edom's dukes shall be amaz'd,
And Moab's mighty men
Trembling shall seize, away shall melt
All Canaan's dwellers then.
16 Fear upon them and dread shall fall
By thine arm's mightiness.
They like a stone shall quiet lie,
Until thy people pass:
Until thy people Lord shall pass
Which thou hast purchased:
17 Till thou hast brought them in, and in
Thy mount established.
The mount of thine inheritance,
O Lord, the place wherein
Thou hast prepar'd thy sanctuary
For thee to dwell therein:
Which thy hands, Lord, establish'd have.
18 Jehovah he shall reign;
For evermore, through ages all,
For ever sovereign.
19 For Pharaoh's horse and chariots his
And horsemen down they went
Into the sea, Jehovah then
The sea upon them sent.
20 The waters of the sea on them
He turned back in haste,
But on dry land thro' midst of sea
The sons of Isra'l pass'd.
21 Sing ye unto the Lord, for he
Triumph'd in glory so,
He both the horse and rider down
Into the sea did throw
The triumphant Song of Moses
Hymnal: PHSS1742 #291 (1742) Scripture: Deuteronomy 32 First Line: O heavens give ye attentive ear Lyrics: 1 O heavens give ye attentive ear
To what I shall declare,
And also thou, O earth, shalt hear
What my mouth's sayings are.
2 My doctrine like the rain shall drop,
My speech distil shall as
The dew, as rain on tender herbs,
And like the show'rs on grass.
3 Because that I Jehovah's name
Will publish all abroad:
See that ye greatness attribute
Therefore unto our God.
4 That rock his work most perfect is,
For's ways all judgment be,
A God of truth, and without sin,
Both just and right is he.
5 But they defil'd themselves, their spot,
Is not his children's stain,
A crooked generation they
And froward do remain.
6 O foolish people and unwise.
The Lord thus pay do ye;
Thy father who thee bought and made,
And fstablish'd is not he?
7 Remember days of old, the years,
Of ev'ry age mark well;
Thy father ask, and he'il thee shew;
Thine elders will thee tell.
8 When as the highest shar'd their lots
Unto the nations;
When as the separation he
Did make of Adam's sons.
The borders of the people he
Did set where they should dwell,
According to the number of
The sons of Israel.
9 Because Jehovah's portion
His chosen people be,
The lot of his inheritance,
10 He found him in a desert land,
Where the wild beasts did cry:
He led him round, him taught, him kept
As th' apple of his eye.
ii As th' eagle stirreth up her nest,
And flutters o'er her young,
Spreads out her wings, and takes them up,
Bears them her wings upon:
12 Ev'n in such wise Jehovah led
Him up and down alone;
A strange or idol god with him
There was not any one.
13 On the high places of the earth
He caused him to ride,
That with the plenteous fields increase,
He might be satisfy'd.
The honey from the rock also,
To suck he did him make;
He from tke flinty rock likewise,
Did make him oyl to take.
14 On butter thou of kine, and on
The milk of sheep didst feed;
With fat of lambs,and goats, and rams,
That were of Bashan's breed.
Together with the fatness of
The wheaten kidnies fine:
Thou of the grapes didft also drink
The blood, refined wine.
15 But Jesurun then waxed fat,
And wantonly did spurn:
Thou art with fatness covered,
Art thick with fatness grown.
Then he forsook the mighty God,
Who had him magnify'd,
The rock of his salvation
He also vilify'd.
16 They with strange gods his jealousy
Did kindle as a fire,
And with abominations
They did provoke his ire.
17 They did to devils, not to God,
Their sacrifice prefer;
To gods unknown, new up-starts whom
Their fathers did not fear.
18 The rock who thee begotten hath,
Remembred thou hast not:
The mighty God who formed thee,
Thou also hast forgot.
19 When this Jehovah saw, then he
Despising, them did loath;
Because of the provoking of
His sons and daughters both.
20 He said, I'll hide my face from them,
What is their end I'll see:
For they a very froward race;
They faithless children be.
21 With that which is no god they have
Me mov'd to jealousy;
They have provoked me to wrath,
With idols vanity.
With what's no people I'll also
Them move to jealousy;
Them with a foolish nation too
To wrath provoke will I.
22 For fire enkindled in my wrath
Shall burn to hell below,
And waste the earth with her increase,
Hills bottoms fire also.
23 I mifchiefs will upon them heap,
Mine arrows on them spend ;
24 With hunger burnt, with heat devour'd,
With bitter plagues them end.
The teeth of cruel beasts I will
Upon them send also:
The poison too of serpents vile
Which on the dust do go.
25 The sword without, and dread within,
Young men and maids bereave;
Which neither shall the suckling babe,
Nor hoary headed leave.
26 Yea into corners I did say,
That I would scatter them;
I'll their remembrance make to cease
Among the sons of men.
27 But that I fear'd their foes wou'd rage,
Lest they would carry strange,
And say, our high hand, not the Lord,
Hath wrought this mighty change.
28 For they're a nation counselless,
Nor understanding find,
29 O were they wifs, this understood,
Their latter end would mind.
30 How should one chase a thousand, two
Ten thousand put to flight?
Had not their rock them fold, and them
Jehovah shut up quite.
31 Because their rock unto our rock
Is not to be compared;
Yea, tho' our enemies themselves
As judges mould be heard.
32 For their vine is of Sodom's vine,
And of Gomorrah's field;
Their grapes are grapes of gall, to them
They bitter clusters yield.
33 Their wine as dragon's pois'n, as asps
Their cruel venom is.
34 Is not this stor'd with me, and seal'd
Among my treasuries?
35 Vengeance is mine and recompence,
In time their foot shall slide:
For their wo-day is nigh, and soon
Evil shall them betide,
36 Because the Lord his folk shall judge,
For's servants he'll repent.
When none shut up or lest he sees,
And that their power is spent.
37 Then he shall say those gods of theirs,
Now where, O where are they?
Where is the rock on whom they did.
Their expectation stay?
38 Which eat their sacrifices fat,
Drank their wine offerings too,
Let them arise, help you, and be
A hiding-place for you.
39 See now that I, ev'n I am he,
And there's no god with me'
I kill and quicken, wound and heal,
None from my hand can free;
40 For I to heav'n lift up mine hand,
And say I live for aye.
41 If my bright sword I whet, and if
My hand on judgment stay;
I'll render vengeance to my foes,
I'll pay them that me hate;
42 I'll make mine arrows drunk with blood,
And flesh my sword shall eat.
With blood of slain, and those who fall
Even from the first, revenge I take
Upon the enemy.
43 Sing joyfully ye nations, with
Those who his people be:
Because that of his servants all
Revenge the blood will he.
And to his adversaries he
Will render vengeance due,
And he will mercy to his land,
And to his people shew.
The Prophetic song of Moses
Hymnal: PHSS1742 #297 (1742) Scripture: Judges 5 First Line: In that he Israel hath reveng'd Lyrics: 1 In that he Israel hath reveng'd,
Bless ye therefore the Lord:
2 In that the people offered
Themselves of free accord.
3 Give ear, O kings, ye princes hear,
Sing to the Lord I will;
I, even I'll sing to the Lord,
The God of Israel.
4 Lord, when thou went'st from Seir, when thou
Didst march from Edom's field;
The earth did shake, the heav'ns did drop,
The clouds their show'rs distill'd.
5 Before the presence of the Lord,
The mountains melting fell;
Ev'n Sina, from before the Lord,
The God of Israel.
6 In days of Shamgar, Anath's son,
High-ways in Jael's days,
Untrodden were: the passengers
Did travel through by-ways.
7 The villagers did cease to be,
They ceas'd in Israel:
Till that I Deb'rah rose; I rose
A mother in Israel.
8 New gods they chase, then cruel wars
Entred their gates within,
With forty thousand Isra'lites
No shield nor spear was seen.
9 My heart to Israel's rulers is,
Who did of free accord
Present themfelves among the folk:
Bless ye therefore the Lord.
10 Speak ye your minds, all ye that do
Upon while asses ride;
Ye that in judgment sit, and ye
That walk the way beside.
11 Who from the archer's noise are freed,
There shall they now record,
In places where they water draw,
The just acts of the Lord.
His righteous acts to them who dwell
In Israel's towns relate,
Then shall the people of the Lord
Go down unto the gate.
12 Wake, wake, O Deborah, wake, awake,
A song sing; Barak rise;
Abinoam's son, and captive lead,
Thou thy captivities.
13 Unto the remnant he gave rule
Above the nobles then
Among the folk: the Lord gave me
Rule over mighty men.
14 From Ephraim a root against
Proud Amalek there was.
Thy followers, O Benjamin,
Among thy folk did pass,
From out of Machir governours
Deseended also then,
And out of Zebulun came they
That handle writer's pen.
15 Then Issachar, ev'n Issachar,
His peers with Deborah went,
And also Barak was on foot,
Into the valley sent.
Because of those divisions that
In Ruben did appear,
Great fears and anxious thoughts of heart
Among us then there were.
16 Why didst, thou with the sheep-folds stay
The bleating flocks to hear?
For Ruben his divisions sad
Heart-searchings great there were.
17 Gilead by Jordan stay'd; and why
Did Dan in ships reside?
On sea-shore Amur why remain,
And in his creeks abide?
18 But Zebulun and Napthali
Were people who did yield
Their lives in danger unto death
In the high open field.
19 The kings came and they fought, then fought
The kings of Canaan,
In Tanach by Megiddo's streams;
No money prize they wan.
20 From heav'n they fought, the stars by course
Fought against Sisera:
21 Then Kishon's brook, old Kishon's brook,
That brook them swept away.
O thou my soul hast trod down strength.
22 Then broke their horse-hoofs were;
By pransing, trampling, pransings of
Their mighty horses there.
23 Curse Meroz, curse her dwellers, curse,
Jehovah's angel said:
For they came not to aid the Lord,
Against the strong to aid.
24 Jael the Kenite, Heber's wife,
'Bove women bless shall be:
Above the women in the tent,
A blesed one is she.
25 He water ask'd; she gave him milk,
Him butter forth she fetch'd
26 In lordly dish: then to the nail,
She forth her left hand stretch'd;
Her right the workman's hammer held,
And Sisera struck dead:
She pierc'd and struck his temples through,
And then smote off his head.
27 He at her feet bow'd, fell, lay down,
He at her feet bow'd, where
He fell: ev'n where he bowed down,
He fell destroyed there.
28 Out of a window Sisera
His mother look'd, and said,
The lattess through, in coming why
So long his chariot staid ?
His chariot-wheels why tarry they?
29 Her ladies wise reply'd,
Yea to herself the answer made,
30 Have they not sped? she cry'd
The prey to each, a maid or twain,
Divided have not they?
To Sifera have they not shar'd
A divers-colour'd prey?
Of divers colour'd needle-work,
Wrought curious on each side,
Of various colours, meet for necks
Of those who spoils divide?
31 So perish let thine enemies all,
O Lord; but let all those
Who do him love, be like the sun
That in his strength forth goes.
The triumpant Song of Deborah and Barak
Hymnal: PHSS1742 #301 (1742) Scripture: 1 Samuel 2 First Line: My heart doth in Jehovah joy Lyrics: 1 My heart doth in Jehovah joy,
My horn in Jah is lift on high,
My mouth enlarg'd is o'er my foe,
For in thy health rejoyce do I.
2 Like to the Lord, there's holy none,
For there is none besides but thee :
And other rock there is not one,
That to our God compar'd may be,
3 Speak ye out no presumptuous word,
No harshnefs from your mouth proceed,
For God of knowledge is the Lord,
Also by him are actions weigh'd.
4 The strong man's bows are shivered,
And they that slipt are girt with power.
5 The full have hir'd themselves for bread,
And hungry ceas'd from wanting more,
She that was barren seven bear
The fruitful woman weak is grown.
6 The Lord doth kill, and lile doth spare.
He lifts up, and to grave brings down.
7 The Lord both poor and rich doth make;
He raiseth up, and bringeth low.
8 The poor he up from dust doth take,
He beggar lifts the dunghill fro.
To give him place with princely lords.
To fix Him on a glorious throne;
For earth's foundations are the Lord's,
And he hath set the world thereon.
9 His holy ones their feet he will
Preserve so that they shall not fail;
The vile in darkness shall be still,
For no man shall by strength prevail.
10 The adversaries of the Lord
Shall broken be to pieces small
And he from heaven shall accord
To thunder forth upon them all.
The borders of the earth the Lord
Shall justly judge, and he likewise
Unto his king shall strength afford,
And make his oynted's horn to rise. Languages: English
The joyful Song of Hannah
Hymnal: PHSS1742 #302 (1742) Scripture: 2 Samuel 1:17 First Line: Upon the places high is slain Lyrics: 19 Upon the places high is slain
The flow'r of Israel.
How are the mighty fallen down:
20 In Gath this never tell:
Nor shew't in streets of Askelon,
Lest Philistines rejoyce,
Lest daughters of th' uncircumcis'd
Should make triumphant noise.
21 Ye mountains high of Gilboah
Left there be never dew.
Nor rain, nor fields of offerings
Let ever be on you.
For there the mighty one his shield
Receiv'd disgraceful foil:
The shield of Saul, as he had not
Anointed been with oyl.
22 The bow of Jon'than did not turn
Back from the blood of slain,
From fat of mighty, and Saul's sword
Did not return in vain.
23 Most lovely Saul and Jonathan,
And pleasant did abide
Whilst they did live and in their death
Them nothing did divide
They swifter than the eagles were,
The lions did excell
24 In strength. O weep ye over Saul,
Daughters of Israel.
Who did in scarlet you array,
With deckings manifold,
Who did on your apparel lay
The ornaments of gold.
25 In midst of the fierce battle how,
The mighty fallen lie.
O Jonathan cut off wast thou,
Upon thy places high!
26 O thou my brother Jonathan,
I am diftress'd for theem
A loving dear companion
Thou hast been unto me.
Thy love to me in wonder past
The love of women far:
27 How are the mighty fallen, and waste
The weapons are of war! Languages: English
David's mournful Elegy
Hymnal: PHSS1742 #PI (1742) Scripture: Psalm 1 Lyrics: 1 O blessed man that walks not in
Th' advice of wicked men,
Nor standeth in the sinner way,
Nor scorners seats sits in.
2 But he upon Jehovah's law
Doth set his whole delight,
And in his law doth meditate
Both in the day and night.
3 He shall be like a planted tree
by water-brooks which shall
In his due season yield his fruit,
Whose leaf shall never fall.
And all he doth shall prosper well.
4 The wicked are not so:
But they are like unto the chaff
Which wind drives to and fro.
5 Therefore shall not ungodly men
In judgement stand upright,
Nor in th' assembly of the just
Shall stand the sinful wight.
6 For of the righteous men the Lord
Acknowledgeth the way;
Whereas the way of wicked men
Shall utterly decay.

Hymnal: PHSS1742 #PII (1742) Scripture: Psalm 2 Lyrics: 1 Why rage the heathen furiously,
Vain things the people muse?
2 Kings of the earth do set themselves,
And princes plotting use.
With one consent against the Lord,
Against his Christ also,
3 Let us asunder break their bands,
And their cords from us throw.
4 He that in heaven sits shall laugh,
The Lord deride them shall.
5 Then to them in his ire he'll speak,
In's wrath sore vex them all.
6 But I anoint my king upon
Zion my holy hill.
7 The counsel that establish'd is
Declare abroad I will.
8 The Lord said, Thou'rt my Son, this day
I thee begotten have;
Ask thou of me, and for my lot
The heathen I will give;
And of the earth thou shalt possess
The utmost coast abroad.
9 Thou shalt them break as potters sherd,
And crust with iron rod,
10 And now ye kings be wise, be learn'd
Earth's judges ye that are.
11 Serve ye the Lord with reverence,
Rejoyce with trembling fear.
12 Kiss ye the son lest he be wroth,
And ye fall in the way,
When his wrath but a little burns,
Bless'd all that on him stay.
Why rage the heathen furiously
Hymnal: PHSS1742 #PIII (1742) Scripture: Psalm 3 First Line: O Lord, my foes how great are they? Lyrics: 1 O Lord, my foes how great are they?
How many up against me stand?
2 No help is to my soul, they say,
In God for him at any hand.
3 My shield and glory yet art thou,
Lord, and th' up-lifter of my head:
4 I with my voice to Jah call'd, who
From's holy hill me answered. Selah
5 I lay down, slept, and wake did I,
For em Jehovah up did bear;
6 The folk that round against me lie,
Ten thousand of them I'll not fear.
7 O Lord my God to save me rise,
For all mine en'mies thou hast stroke
Upon the cheek-bone; thou likewise
The teeth hast of the wicked broke.
8 This and all such salvation
Unto Jehovah doth pertain:
Thy people specially upon
Thy blessing doth and shall remain. Languages: English
A Psalm of David, when he fled from the Face of Absalom his Son
Hymnal: PHSS1742 #PIV (1742) Scripture: Psalm 4 First Line: God of my justice, when I call Lyrics: 1 God of my justice, when I call,
O hear me when distress'd,
Thou hast enlarg'd me; shew me grace
And hear thou my request.
2 Ye sons of men my glory turn
To shame, how long will you?
How long will ye love vanity,
And still deceit pursue? Selah.
3 But know the Lord hath set apart
For him the gracious saint:
The Lord will hear when unto him
I pour out my complaint.
4 Be stirred up, but do not sin,
Within your heart with silence deep
When on your bed you lie.
5 The sacrifice of righteousness
Let sacrificed be,
And confidently put your trust
Upon the Lord do ye.
6 Many there be that say, O who
Will cause us good to see?
The light, Lord, Of thy countenance,
Let on us lifted be.
7 Thou hast put gladness in my heart
More than the time wherein
Their corn and their new wine also
Have much increased been.
8 In peace with him I will lie down,
And I my sleep will take:
For me in confidence to dwell,
Thou Lord alone dost make. Languages: English
To the chief Musician on Neginoth. A Psalm of David
Hymnal: PHSS1742 #PVIb (1742) Scripture: Psalm 4 Lyrics: 1 Jehovah, O rebuke me not
When thou shalt angry be;
And in thine indignation hot,
O do not chasten me;
2 O Lord, because that weak am I,
Be gracious unto me:
Jehovah, heal thou me, for why
My bones they vexed be.
3 And vex'd my soul is vehemently;
But thou, Lord, how long space?
4 Return, O lord, my soul set free,
O save me for thy grace.
5 For they who are in death, at all
Of thee no mem'ry have,
With thinks confess to thee who shall
That is within the grave?
6 I tired am with groaning cries,
To swim I make my bead
Thro' all the night; my couch likewise
With tears I watered.
7 With grievous indignation
Consumed are mine eyes:
And they are old and dim become
'Mongst all mine enemies.
8 All ye that work iniquity
Away from me be gone:
Because the Lord hath heard the cry
Of my complaining moan.
9 My humble suit for grace also
Jehovah doth it hear:
Jehovah will my prayer unto
Vouchsafe a gracious ear.
10 Asham'd and vexed vehemently
Be all mine enemies:
Let them return, and suddenly
Let them be sham'd likewise.
Jehovah, O rebuke me not
