Psalm 138
BEDFORD (first form) | Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
1650 Scottish Psalter
William Wheall, c. 1690-1727
1 Thee will I praise with all my heart, I will sing praise to thee 2 Before the gods: And worship will towàrd thy sanctuary. I'll praise thy name, ev'n for thy truth, and kindness of thy love; For thou thy word hast magnified all thy great name above. 3 Thou didst me answer in the day when I to thee did cry; And thou my fainting soul with strength didst strengthen inwardly. 4 All kings upon the earth that are shall give thee praise, O Lord; When as they from thy mouth shall hear thy true and faithful word. 5 Yea, in the righteous ways of God with gladness they shall sing: For great's the glory of the Lord, who doth for ever reign. 6 Though God be high, yet he respects all those that lowly be; Whereas the proud and lofty ones afar off knoweth he. 7 Though I in midst of trouble walk, I life from thee shall have: 'Gainst my foes' wrath thou'lt stretch thine hand; thy right hand shall me save. 8 Surely that which concerneth me the Lord will perfect make: Lord, still thy mercy lasts; do not thine own hands' works forsake.
