Words: Sternhold and Hopkins, The Whole Book of Psalms Collected into English Metre

   1  O Lord, I am not puft*** in mind,
         I have no scornful eye,
      I do not exercise myself
         in things that be too high:
   2  But as a child that wean-ed is
         e'en from his mother's breast,
      So have I, Lord behaved myself
         In silence and in rest.
   3  O Israel, trust in the Lord
         let him be all thy stay,
      From this time forth for evermore,
         from age to age always.
*** puft:  probably puffed as in "proud" or "puffed up"
