Psalm 149

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

1    Praise ye the Lord: unto him sing
       a new song, and his praise
     In the assembly of his saints
       in sweet psalms do ye raise.
2    Let Isr'el in his Maker joy,
       and to him praises sing:
     Let all that Sion's children are
       be joyful in their King.

3    O let them unto his great name
       give praises in the dance;
     Let them with timbrel and with harp
       in songs his praise advance.
4    For God doth pleasure take in those
       that his own people be;
     And he with his salvation
       the meek will beautify.

5    And in his glory excellent
       let all his saints rejoice:
     Let them to him upon their beds
       aloud lift up their voice.
6    Let in their mouth aloft be rais'd
       the high praise of the Lord,
     And let them have in their right hand
       a sharp two-edged sword;

7    To execute the vengeance due
       upon the heathen all,
     And make deserved punishment
       upon the people fall.
8    And ev'n with chains, as pris'ners, bind
       their kings that them command;
     Yea, and with iron fetters strong,
       the nobles of their land.

9    On them the judgment to perform
       found written in his word:
     This honour is to all his saints.
       O do ye praise the Lord.
