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.
