Psalm 113

Words: Brady and  Tate, A New Version of the Psalms of David

L.M. 888 888

 1   Ye saints and servants of the Lord,
     the triumphs of his Name record:
 2      His sacred Name for ever bless.
 3   Where'er the circling sun displays
     his rising beams or setting rays,
        Due praise to his great Name address.

 4   God through the world extends his sway,
     the regions of eternal day
        But shadows of his glory are.
 5   With him, whose majesty excels,
     who made the heav'n in which he dwells,
        Let no created pow'r compare.

 6   Though 'tis beneath his state to view
     in highest heav'n what angels do,
        Yet he to earth vouchsafes his care:
     He takes the needy from his cell,
     advancing him in courts to dwell,
        companion to the greatest there.

 7   When childless families despair,
     he sends the blessing of an heir,
        To rescue their expiring name;
     Makes her that barren was to bear,
     and joyfully her fruit to rear:
        O then extol his matchless fame!
