1650 Scottish Psalter
Ravenscroft's Psalter, 1621
1 Jehovah hear thee in the day when trouble he doth send: And let the name of Jacob's God thee from all ill defend. 2 O let him help send from above, out of his sanctuary: From Zion, his own holy hill, let him give strength to thee. 3 Let him remember all thy gifts, accept thy sacrifice: 4 Grant thee thine heart's wish, and fulfill thy thoughts and counsel wise. 5 In thy salvation we will joy; in our God's name we will Display our banners: and the Lord thy prayèrs all fulfill. 6 Now know I God his king doth save: he from his holy heav'n Will hear him, with the saving strength by his own right hand giv'n. 7 In chariots some put confidence, some horses trust upon: But we remember will the name of our Lord God alone. 8 We rise, and upright stand, when they are bowèd down, and fall. 9 Deliver, Lord; and let the King us hear, when we do call.
