Psalm 138

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

1    Thee will I praise with all my heart,
       I will sing praise to thee
2    Before the gods: And worship will
       toward thy sanctuary.
     I'll praise thy name, ev'n for thy truth,
       and kindness of thy love;
     For thou thy word hast magnify'd
       all thy great name above.

3    Thou didst me answer in the day
       when I to thee did cry;
     And thou my fainting soul with strength
       didst strengthen inwardly.
4    All kings upon the earth that are
       shall give thee praise, O Lord,
     When as they from thy mouth shall hear
       thy true and faithful word.

5    Yea, in the righteous ways of God
       with gladness they shall sing:
     For great's the glory of the Lord;
       who doth for ever reign.
6    Though God be high, yet he respects
       all those that lowly be;
     Whereas the proud and lofty ones
       afar off knoweth he.

7    Though I in midst of trouble walk,
       I life from thee shall have:
     'Gainst my foes' wrath thou'lt stretch thine hand;
       thy right hand shall me save.
8    Surely that which concerneth me
       the Lord will perfect make:
     Lord, still thy mercy lasts; do not
       thine own hands' works forsake.
