Psalm 75 J.H.
Words: Sternhold and Hopkins, The Whole Book of Psalms Collected into English Metre
1 To thee, O God, will we give thanks, we will give thanks to thee, Since thy Name is so near, declare thy wondrous works will we. 2 I will uprightly judge, when get convenient time I may: The earth is weak, and all therein, but I her pillars stay. 3 I did to the mad people say, Deal not so furiously; And unto the ungodly ones, Lift not your horns on high: 4 I said unto them, Set not up your rais-ed horns on high, And see that with stiff neck ye do not speak presumptuously: 5 For neither from the eastern parts, nor from the west likewise, Nor from forsaken wilderness, promotion doth arise: 6 But God, who rules both heav'n and earth, the righteous Judge alone, 'Tis he that puts down one, and sets another on the throne. 7 For why? a cup of mighty wine is in the hand of God, And all the mixture of the same himself will pour abroad: 8 As for the lees and filthy dregs that do remain of it, The wicked of the earth shall drink and suck them ev'ry whit. 9 But I will talk of God alway, and his great Name adore, And will not cease to celebrate his praise for evermore. 10 In sunder break the horns of all ungodly men will I; And then the horns of righteous men shall be exalted high.
