Psalm 113

Words: The Scottish Psalter

Common Metre Tunes

 1  Praise God: ye servants of the Lord,
       O praise, the Lord's name praise.
 2  Yea, bless-ed be the name of God
       from this time forth always.

 3  From rising sun to where it sets,
       God's name is to be praised.
 4  Above all nations God is high,
       'bove heav'ns his glory raised.

 5  Unto the Lord our God that dwells
       on high, who can compare?
 6  Himself that humbleth things to see
       in heav'n and earth that are.

 7  He from the dust doth raise the poor,
       that very low doth lie;
    And from the dunghill lifts the man
       oppressed with poverty;

 8  That he may highly him advance,
       and with the princes set;
    With those that of his people are
       the chief, ev'n princes great.

 9  The barren woman house to keep
       he maketh, and to be
    Of sons a mother full of joy.
       Praise to the Lord give ye.
