Psalm 19

Words: The Bay Psalm Book


To the chief Musician, a psalm of David
 1     The heavens do declare
       the majesty of God:
    also the firmament shows forth
       his handy-work abroad. 
 2     Day speaks to day, knowledge
       night hath to night declared.
 3  There neither speech nor language is
       where their voice is not heard. 
 4     Through all the earth their line
       is gone forth and unto
    the utmost end of all the world,
       their speeches reach also 
       A tabernacle he
       in them pitched for the sun.
 5  Who bridegroom like from's chamber goes
       glad Giants-race to run. 
 6     From heavens utmost end,
       his course and compassing
    to ends of it and from the heat
       thereof is hid nothing. 
 7     The Lord's law perfect is,
       the soul converting back;
    God's testimony faithful is,
       makes wise who wisdom lack. 
 8     The statutes of the Lord,
       are right, and glad the heart:
    the Lord's commandment is pure,
       light doth to eyes impart. 
 9     Jehova's fear is clean,
       and doth endure for e'er
    the judgements of the Lord are true,
       and righteous alt'gether. 
10     Than gold, than much fine gold,
       more to be priz-ed are,
    than honey, and the honey comb
       sweeter they are by far. 
11     Also thy servant is
       admonish-ed from hence:
    and in the keeping of the same
       is a full recompense. 
12     Who can his errors know?
       From secret faults cleanse me.
13  And from presumptuous sins, let thou
       kept back thy servant be: 
       Let them now be the rule
       in me, and then shall I
    be perfect, and shall cleans-ed be
       from much iniquity. 
14     Let the words of my mouth,
       and the thoughts of my heart,
    be pleasing with thee, Lord, my Rock
       who my redeemer art.
