Psalm 149 N.
Words: Sternhold and Hopkins, The Whole Book of Psalms Collected into English Metre
1 Sing ye unto the Lord our God a new rejoicing song, And let the praise of him be heard his holy saints among.
2 Let Israel rejoice in God, and praises to him sing And let the seed of Zion be most joyful in their King:
3 Let them sound praise with voice of lute unto his holy Name, And with the timbrel and the harp sing praises to the same.
4 For why? the Lord his pleasure all hath in his people set, And by deliv'rance he will raise the meek to glory great.
5 With glory and with honor now let all his saints rejoice; Aloud upon their beds also advance their singing voice.
6 And in their mouths let be the high praises of God the Lord, And in their hands likewise a sharp and a two-edged sword,
7 To plague the heathen, and correct the people with their hands; To bind their stately kings in chains, their lords in iron bands:
8 To execute on them the doom that written was before: This honor all his saints shall have; Praise ye the Lord therefore.
