Representative Text

1 Now to God, our Strength and Saviour,
Render praise and loudly sing;
In our fathers' God rejoicing,
All your noblest music bring.

2 Let the trumpet, far resounding,
This our festal day proclaim,
By our fathers' God appointed,
When from bondage Israel came.

3 I, thy God, removed thy burdens,
When thou calledst, set thee free,
Proved thee in the thirsty desert,
In the thunder answered thee.

4 O My people, hear My pleadings;
O that thou woulds hearken now;
No strange worship shalt thou offer,
Nor to idols shalt thou bow.

5 I am God the Lord Who saved thee,
And from cruel bondage freed;
Open wide thy mouth of longing;
I will satisfy thy need.

6 But My people would not hearken,
Yea, they would not yield to Me;
So I left them in their blindness,
Their own counselors to be.

7 If My people would obey me,
Gladly walking in My ways,
Soon would I, their foes subduing,
Fill their lips with songs of praise.

8 All the haters of Jehovah
Shall His clemency implore,
and the days of those that love Him
Shall endure for evermore.

9 Yea, with wheat the very finest
I their hunger will supply,
Bid the very rocks yield honey
That shall fully satisfy.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
