Psalm 108

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

1    My heart is fix'd, Lord; I will sing,
       and with my glory praise.
2    Awake up psaltery and harp;
       myself I'll early raise.
3    I'll praise thee `mong the people, Lord;
       'mong nations sing will I:
4    For above heav'n thy mercy's great,
       thy truth doth reach the sky.

5    Be thou above the heavens, Lord,
       exalted gloriously;
     Thy glory all the earth above
       be lifted up on high.
6    That those who thy beloved are
       delivered may be,
     O do thou save with thy right hand,
       and answer give to me.

7    God in his holiness hath said,
       Herein I will take pleasure;
     Shechem I will divide, and forth
       will Succoth's valley measure.
8    Gilead I claim as mine by right;
       Manasseh mine shall be;
     Ephraim is of my head the strength;
       Judah gives laws for me;

9    Moab's my washing-pot; my shoe
       I'll over Edom throw;
     Over the land of Palestine
       I will in triumph go.
10   O who is he will bring me to
       the city fortify'd?
     O who is he that to the land
       of Edom will me guide?

11   O God, thou who hadst cast us off,
       this thing wilt thou not do?
     And wilt not thou, ev'n thou, O God,
       forth with our armies go?
12   Do thou from trouble give us help,
       for helpless is man's aid.
13   Through God we shall do valiantly;
       our foes he shall down tread.
