Psalm 138 N.
Words: Sternhold and Hopkins, The Whole Book of Psalms Collected into English Metre
1 Thee will I praise with my whole heart, my Lord my God always; E'en in the presence of the gods I will advance thy praise.
2 Towards thy holy temple I will look and worship thee; And praisèd in my thankful mouth thy holy Name shall be;
3 E'en for thy loving-kindness' sake, and for thy truth withal: For thou thy Name hast by thy word Advancèd over all.
4 When I did call, thou heardest me, and thou hast made also The power of increasèd strength within my soul to grow.
5 Yea, all the kings on earth shall give praise unto thee, O Lord: For they of thy most holy mouth have heard the mighty word.
6 They of the ways of God the Lord in singing shall repeat; Because the glory of the Lord is so exceeding great.
7 The Lord is high, but yet he doth the lowly man respect; The proud he knows far off, and them with scorn he doth reject.
8 Although in midst of trouble I do walk, yet shall I stand Revived by thee; for thou, O Lord, wilt stretch out thy right hand.
9 Upon the wrath of all my foes, and savèd shall I be By thy right hand: the Lord God will perform his work to me.
10 Thy mercies last for evermore, Lord, do me not forsake; Forsake me not, who am the work which thy own hand did make.
