Psalm 108

Words: The Scottish Psalter

Common Metre Tunes

A Song or Psalm of David

 1  My heart is fixed, Lord; I will sing,
       and with my glory praise.
 2  Awake up psaltery and harp;
       myself I'll early raise.

 3  I'll praise thee 'mong the people, Lord;
       'mong nations sing will I:
 4  For above heav'n thy mercy's great,
       thy truth doth reach the sky.

 5  Be thou above the heavens, Lord,
       exalted gloriously;
    Thy glory all the earth above
       be lifted up on high.

 6  That those who thy beloved are
       deliver-ed may be,
    O do thou save with thy right hand,
       and answer give to me.

 7  God in his holiness hath said,
       Herein I will take pleasure;
    Shechem I will divide, and forth
       will Succoth's valley measure.

 8  Gilead I claim as mine by right;
        Manasseh mine shall be;
    Ephraim is of my head the strength;
        Judah gives laws for me;

 9  Moab's my washing-pot; my shoe
       I'll over Edom throw;
    Over the land of Palestine
       I will in triumph go.

10  O who is he will bring me to
       the city fortified?
    O who is he that to the land
        of Edom will me guide?

11  O God, thou who hadst cast us off,
        this thing wilt thou not do?
    And wilt not thou, ev'n thou, O God,
        forth with our armies go?

12  Do thou from trouble give us help,
       for helpless is man's aid.
13  Through God we shall do valiantly;
       our foes he shall down tread.
