Psalm 29

Words: The Scottish Psalter

Common Metre Tunes

A Psalm of David. 
    1  Give ye unto the Lord, ye sons
         that of the mighty be,
      All strength and glory to the Lord
         with cheerfulness give ye.
   2  Unto the Lord the glory give
         that to his name is due;
      And in the beauty of holiness
         unto Jehovah bow.
   3  The Lord's voice on the waters is;
         the God of majesty
      Doth thunder, and on multitudes
         of waters sitteth he.
   4  A pow'rful voice it is that comes
         out from the Lord most high;
      The voice of that great Lord is full
         of glorious majesty.
   5  The voice of the Eternal doth
         asunder cedars tear;
      Yea, God the Lord doth cedars break
         that Lebanon doth bear.
   6  He makes them like a calf to skip,
          ev'n that great Lebanon,
      And, like to a young unicorn,
          the mountain Sirion.
   7  God's voice divides the flames of fire;
   8     The desert it doth shake:
      The Lord doth make the wilderness
         of Kadesh all to quake.
   9  God's voice doth make the hinds to calve,
         it makes the forest bare:
      And in his temple ev'ry one
         his glory doth declare.
  10  The Lord sits on the floods; the Lord
         sits King, and ever shall.
  11  The Lord will give his people strength,
         and with peace bless them all.
