Psalm 20

Words: The Scottish Psalter

Common Metre Tunes

   1  Jehovah hear thee in the day
         when trouble he doth send:
      And let the name of Jacob's God
         thee from all ill defend.
   2  O let him help send from above,
         out of his sanctuary:
      From Zion, his own holy hill,
         let him give strength to thee.
   3  Let him remember all thy gifts,
         accept thy sacrifice:
   4  Grant thee thine heart's wish, and fulfill
         thy thoughts and counsel wise.
   5  In thy salvation we will joy;
         in our God's name we will
      Display our banners: and the Lord
         thy prayers all fulfill.
   6  Now know I God his king doth save:
         he from his holy heav'n
      Will hear him, with the saving strength
         by his own right hand giv'n.
   7  In chariots some put confidence,
         some horses trust upon:
      But we remember will the name
         of our Lord God alone.
   8  We rise, and upright stand, when they
         are bowed down, and fall.
   9  Deliver, Lord; and let the King
         us hear, when we do call.
