Psalm 111 N.
Words: Sternhold and Hopkins, The Whole Book of Psalms Collected into English Metre
1 With heart I do accord to praise and laud the Lord, In presence of the just; For great his works are found, To search them such are bound, as do him love and trust,
2 His works are glorious, and righteousness to us, It ever doth endure: His wondrous works he would We still remember should; his mercy is full sure.
3 Such as to him bear love, a portion fair below He hath up for them laid: For this they shall well find, He will them have in mind, and keep them as he said.
4 For he did not disdain his works to show them plain, By lightnings and by thunders: When he the heathens' land Did give into their hand, where they beheld his wonders.
5 Of all his works ensu'th both judgment, right, and truth, Whereto his statutes tend: They are decrečd sure For ever to endure, on which we may depend.
6 Redemption great he gave his people for to save, It also hath appeared; His promise doth hot fail, But evermore prevail: his holy Name be feared.
7 Whoso with heart full fain true wisdom would attain, The Lord fear and obey Such as his laws do keep, Shall knowledge have full deep; his praise shall last alway.
