1 The Lord forever shall endure,
He hath for judgment set His throne,
In righteousness to judge the world
And justice give to everyone.

Refrain:
Lord, Thee I’ll praise with all my heart,
And all Thy wondrous works proclaim;
In Thee, O Thou most high, I’ll joy,
And sing the praise of Thy great name.

2 Jehovah shall a refuge prove,
A refuge strong for poor oppressed,
A safe retreat, where weary souls
In troublous times may find a rest. [Refrain]

3 And they, O Lord, that know Thy name,
Their confidence in Thee will place;
For Thou, Jehovah, never hast
Forsaken them that seek Thy face. [Refrain]

4 Sing praises to the Lord most high,
To Him that doth in Zion dwell;
Declare His mighty deeds abroad,
His deeds among all people tell. [Refrain]

5 When He inquiry makes for blood,
He calls to mind the murderer’s deed;
Nor will forget the humble saints,
Who cry to Him in time of need. [Refrain]

6 Lord, have mercy, and regard
The grief which I from foes sustain;
O Thou, who from the gates of death
Dost raise me up to life again; [Refrain]

7 That I, in Zion’s daughter’s gates,
May sing Thy praise with cheerful voice:
In that salvation Thou dost bring,
Redeemed from death, I will rejoice. [Refrain]

8 The heathen in that pit are sunk
Which they had wickedly prepared;
Their net was cunningly concealed,
And in it are their own feet snared. [Refrain]

9 The Lord is by the judgment known
Which He in righteousness has wrought;
The hands of sinners make the snares,
The snares with which themselves are caught. [Refrain]

10 The wicked turned to hell shall be,
And nations that forget the Lord:
The needy shall not be forgot,
Nor poor men lose their hoped rewards. [Refrain]

11 Arise, and let not man prevail;
O Lord, judge heathen in Thy sight;
That they may know themselves but men,
The nations of the world affright. [Refrain]
