Psalm 138

Words: The Scottish Psalter

C. M.

A Psalm of David.
 1  Thee will I praise with all my heart,
       I will sing praise to thee
 2  Before the gods: And worship will
       toward thy sanctuary.

    I'll praise thy name, ev'n for thy truth,
       and kindness of thy love;
    For thou thy word hast magnified
       all thy great name above.

 3  Thou didst me answer in the day
       when I to thee did cry;
    And thou my fainting soul with strength
       didst strengthen inwardly.

 4  All kings upon the earth that are
       shall give thee praise, O Lord,
    When as they from thy mouth shall hear
       thy true and faithful word.

 5  Yea, in the righteous ways of God
       with gladness they shall sing:
    For great's the glory of the Lord;
       who doth for ever reign.

 6  Though God be high, yet he respects
       all those that lowly be;
    Whereas the proud and lofty ones
       afar off knoweth he.

 7  Though I in midst of trouble walk,
       I life from thee shall have:
    'Gainst my foes' wrath thou'lt stretch thine hand;
       thy right hand shall me save.

 8  Surely that which concerneth me
       the Lord will perfect make:
    Lord, still thy mercy lasts; do not
       thine own hands' works forsake.
