Psalm 146
ST. STEPHEN (NEWINGTON) | Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
1650 Scottish Psalter
William Jones, 1726-1800
1 Praise God. The Lord praise, O my soul. 2 I'll praise God while I live; While I have being to my God in songs I'll praises give. 3 Trust not in princes, nor man's son, in whom there is no stay: 4 His breath departs, to's earth he turns; that day his thoughts decay. 5 O happy is that man and blessed, whom Jacob's God doth aid; Whose hope upon the Lord doth rest, and on his God is stayed: 6 Who made the earth and heavens high, who made the swelling deep, And all that is within the same; who truth doth ever keep: 7 Who righteous judgment executes for those oppressed that be, Who to the hungry giveth food; God sets the pris'ners free. 8 The Lord doth give the blind their sight, the bowèd down doth raise: The Lord doth dearly love all those that walk in upright ways. 9 The stranger's shield, the widow's stay, the orphan's help, is he: But yet by him the wicked's way turned upside down shall be. 10 The Lord shall reign for evermore: thy God, O Zion, he Reigns to all generätions. Praise to the Lord give ye.
