Psalm 146

Words: The Scottish Psalter

Common Metre Tunes

 1  Praise God. The Lord praise, O my soul.
 2     I'll praise God while I live;
    While I have being to my God
       in songs I'll praises give.

 3  Trust not in princes, nor man's son,
       in whom there is no stay:
 4  His breath departs, to's earth he turns;
       that day his thoughts decay.

 5  O happy is that man and blest,
       whom Jacob's God doth aid;
    Whose hope upon the Lord doth rest,
       and on his God is stayed:

 6  Who made the earth and heavens high,
       who made the swelling deep,
    And all that is within the same;
       who truth doth ever keep:

 7  Who righteous judgment executes
       for those oppressed that be,
    Who to the hungry giveth food;
       God sets the pris'ners free.

 8  The Lord doth give the blind their sight,
       the bowed down doth raise:
    The Lord doth dearly love all those
       that walk in upright ways.

 9  The stranger's shield, the widow's stay,
       the orphan's help, is he:
    But yet by him the wicked's way
       turned upside down shall be.

10  The Lord shall reign for evermore:
       thy God, O Zion, he
    Reigns to all generations.
       Praise to the Lord give ye.
