Representative Text

1 Let all the Just with one Consent,
To GOD their chearful Voices raise;
For well the Righteous it becomes
To sing before him Songs of Praise.

2 Let Harps and Psalteries and Lutes
At once in joyful Concert meet;
And new-made Songs of loud Applause,
The heav'nly Harmony complete.

3 For faithful is the Word of GOD,
His wond'rous Works with Truth abound;
He Justice loves, and all the Earth
Is with his tender Mercy crown'd.

4 By his Almighty Word, at first,
The glorious Arch of Heav'n was rear'd;
And all the beauteous Hosts of Light,
At his Command at once appear'd.

5 The swelling Floods, together roll'd,
He makes in mountain Heaps to lie;
And lays, as in a Store-house strong,
His wat'ry Treasures safely by.

6 Let Earth, and all that dwell therein,
Before his Presence trembling stand;
For when he spake the Word, 'twas done,
'Twas fix'd by his supreme Command.

7 He, when the Heathen closely plot,
Their secret Counsels undermines;
His Wisdom ineffectual makes,
The foolish Peopl'es rash Designs.

8 Whate'er the mighty LORD decrees,
Shall doubtless stand for ever sure;
The settled Purpose of his Heart
To endless Ages shall endure.

Part II

9 How happy then, are they, to whom
The LORD supreme, for GOD is known;
Whom he, from all the World besides,
Has chosen out to be his own!

10 He all the Nations of the Earth,
From Heav'n his lofty Throne surveys;
He views their Works, and knows their Thoughts,
For by his Pow'r their Hearts were made.

11 No King is safe by num'rous Hosts,
Their boasted Strength the Strong deceives;
No manag'd Horse by Force or Speed,
His gallant war-like Rider saves.

12 'Tis GOD, who those that trust in him,
Beholds with ever gracious Eyes;
He frees their Souls from Death; their Wants,
In Times of Famine, he supplies.

13 Our Souls on GOD with Patience, wait,
Our Help and only Shield is he;
Then, LORD, let still our Hearts rejoice,
Because our Trust is plac'd in thee!

14 The Riches of thy Mercy, LORD,,
To us, thy Servants still extend!
As we, for all our various wants,
On thee, our GOD, alone depend.
