Psalm 146

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

1    Praise God. The Lord praise, O my soul.
2      I'll praise God while I live;
     While I have being to my God
       in songs I'll praises give.
3    Trust not in princes, nor man's son,
       in whom there is no stay:
4    His breath departs, to's earth he turns;
       that day his thoughts decay.

5    O happy is that man and blest,
       whom Jacob's God doth aid;
     Whose hope upon the Lord doth rest,
       and on his God is stay'd:
6    Who made the earth and heavens high,
       who made the swelling deep,
     And all that is within the same;
       who truth doth ever keep:

7    Who righteous judgment executes
       for those oppress'd that be,
     Who to the hungry giveth food;
       God sets the pris'ners free.
8    The Lord doth give the blind their sight,
       the bowed down doth raise:
     The Lord doth dearly love all those
       that walk in upright ways.

9    The stranger's shield, the widow's stay,
       the orphan's help, is he:
     But yet by him the wicked's way
       turn'd upside down shall be.
10   The Lord shall reign for evermore:
       thy God, O Sion, he
     Reigns to all generations.
       Praise to the Lord give ye.
