Psalm 108 J.H. (or N.)
Words: Sternhold and Hopkins, The Whole Book of Psalms Collected into English Metre
1 O God, my heart prepared is, my tongue is likewise so: I will advance my voice in song, that I thy praise may show,
2 Awake, my viol and my harp, sweet melody to make; And in the morning I myself right early will awake.
3 By me among the people, Lord, still praised shalt thou be, And I among the heathen folk will praises sing to thee:
4 Because thy mercy doth ascend above the heav'ns most high;. Also thy truth doth reach the clouds within the lofty sky.
5 Above the starry heavens high exalt thyself, O God, Display likewise upon the earth thy glory all abroad;
6 That thy beloved also may be set at liberty; Help, O my God, with thy right hand, and hear me speedily,
7 God in his holiness hath spoke, wherefore my joys abound, Sichem I will divide, and mete the vale of Succoth's ground,
8 And Gilead shall be my own, Manasses mine shall be; My head-strength Ephraim, and law shall Judah give to me,
9 Moab my wash-pot is, my shoe o'er Edom I will throw, Upon the land of Palestine in triumph I will go.
10 Who to the city strong shall be leader and guide to me Also by whom to Edom's land Conveyčd shall I be.
11 Is it not thou, O Lord, who late hast us forsaken quite? And wilt not thou, Lord, also go forth with our hosts to fight?
12 Give us, O Lord, thy saving aid, when troubles do assail; For all the help of man is vain, and can no whit avail.
13 Through God we shall do valiant acts, and worthy of renown; He shall subdue our enemies, yea, he shall tread them down.
