Psalm 111

Words: The Scottish Psalter

Common Metre Tunes

 1  Praise ye the Lord: with my whole heart
       I will God's praise declare,
    Where the assemblies of the just
       and congregations are.

 2  The whole works of the Lord our God
       are great above all measure,
    Sought out they are of ev'ry one
       that doth therein take pleasure.

 3  His work most honourable is,
       most glorious and pure,
    And his untainted righteousness
       for ever doth endure.

 4  His works most wonderful he hath
       made to be thought upon:
    The Lord is gracious, and he is
       full of compassion.

 5  He giveth meat unto all those
       that truly do him fear;
    And evermore his covenant
       he in his mind will bear.

 6  He did the power of his works
       unto his people show,
    When he the heathen's heritage
       upon them did bestow.

 7  His handy-works are truth and right;
       all his commands are sure:
 8  And, done in truth and uprightness,
       they evermore endure.

 9  He sent redemption to his folk;
       his covenant for aye
    He did command: holy his name
       and rev'rend is alway.

10  Wisdom's beginning is God's fear:
       good understanding they
    Have all that his commands fulfill:
       his praise endures for aye.
