Psalm 111

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

1    Praise ye the Lord: with my whole heart
       I will God's praise declare,
     Where the assemblies of the just
       and congregations are.
2    The whole works of the Lord our God
       are great above all measure,
     Sought out they are of ev'ry one
       that doth therein take pleasure.

3    His work most honourable is,
       most glorious and pure,
     And his untainted righteousness
       for ever doth endure.
4    His works most wonderful he hath
       made to be thought upon:
     The Lord is gracious, and he is
       full of compassion.

5    He giveth meat unto all those
       that truly do him fear;
     And evermore his covenant
       he in his mind will bear.
6    He did the power of his works
       unto his people show,
     When he the heathen's heritage
       upon them did bestow.

7    His handy-works are truth and right;
       all his commands are sure:
8    And, done in truth and uprightness,
       they evermore endure.
9    He sent redemption to his folk;
       his covenant for aye
     He did command: holy his name
       and rev'rend is alway.

10   Wisdom's beginning is God's fear:
       good understanding they
     Have all that his commands fulfill:
       his praise endures for aye.
