Representative Text

1 Jehovah reigneth, therefore let
Hereat rejoyce the earth:
O let the Islands multitude
Be glad with chearful mirth.
2 About him round encompassing
Both clouds and darkness are:
Justice and judgment for his throne
A stable place prepare.

3 Before him goes a fire and burns
Around his enemies.
4 His lightnings did make light the world,
The earth saw, shook likewise
5 The hills before Jehovah's face
Did melt like wax away:
Before the presence of the Lord,
That all the earth doth stay.

6 The heavens high his righteousness
Do all abroad declare:
His glorious majesty to all
The people doth appear.
7 To all that graven idols serve;
Confusion let befall:
That boast themselves in idols vain,
Ye gods him worship all.

8 When Sion heard she did rejoyce,
Rejoyce with one accord
Did Judah's daughters, and the cause
Thy judgments were, O Lord.
9 For over all the earth abroad
Jehovah thou art high:
Likewise above all gods thou art
Extolled mightily

10 Ye that do love the Lord hate ill,
He kaeps the souls of them
That are his saints, he will them save
From hands of wicked men.
11 To every one that righteous is,
Is sown a shining light;
And joyfulness for ail of them
That are in heart upright.

12 O ye therefore that righteous be
Rejoyce ye in the Lord:
And thankfully confess when ye
His holiness record.
