Representative Text

1 To thee, O God, do we give thanks,
we do give thanks to thee;
because thy wondrous works declare
thy great name near to be.
2 I shall the time appointed take,
the moment fixed upon;
and I shall judgment uprightly
render to every one.

3 Dissolved is the land, with all
that in the same do dwell;
but I the pillars thereof do
bear up, and stablish well.
4 I to the foolish people said,
Do not deal foolishly;
and unto those that wicked are,
Lift not your horn on high.

5 Lift not your horn on high, nor speak
6 with stubborn neck. But know,
that not from east, nor west, nor south,
doth exultation flow.
7 But God is judge; he puts down one,
and sets another up.
8 For in the hand of God most high
of red wine is a cup:

’Tis full of mixture, he pours forth,
and makes the wicked all
Wring out the bitter dregs thereof;
yea, and they drink them shall.
9 But I for ever will declare,
I Jacob’s God will praise.
10 All horns of wicked men I’ll break
but just men’s horns will raise.
