Psalm 75

Words: The Scottish Psalter

C. M.

To the chief Musician, Al-taschith,
A Psalm or Song of Asaph.

   1  To thee, O God, do we give thanks,
         we do give thanks to thee;
      Because thy wondrous works declare
         thy great name near to be.
   2  I purpose, when I shall receive
         the congregation,
      That I shall judgment uprightly
         render to ev'ry one.
   3  Dissolvèd is the land, with all
         that in the same do dwell;
      But I the pillars thereof do
         bear up, and stablish well.
   4  I to the foolish people said,
         Do not deal foolishly;
      And unto those that wicked are,
         Lift not your horn on high.
   5  Lift not your horn on high, nor speak
   6     with stubborn neck. But know,
      That not from east, nor west, nor south,
         promotion doth flow.
   7  But God is judge; he puts down one,
         and sets another up.
   8  For in the hand of God most high
         of red wine is a cup:
      'Tis full of mixture, he pours forth,
          and makes the wicked all
      Wring out the bitter dregs thereof;
          yea, and they drink them shall.
   9  But I for ever will declare,
         I Jacob's God will praise.
  10  All horns of lewd men I'll cut off;
         but just men's horns will raise.
