Psalm 66

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

1    All lands to God in joyful sounds,
       aloft your voices raise.
2    Sing forth the honour of his name,
       and glorious make his praise.
3    Say unto God, How terrible
       in all thy works art thou!
     Through thy great pow'r thy foes to thee
       shall be constrain'd to bow.

4    All on the earth shall worship thee,
       they shall thy praise proclaim
     In songs: they shall sing cheerfully
       unto thy holy name.
5    Come, and the works that God hath wrought
       with admiration see:
     In's working to the sons of men
       most terrible is he.

6    Into dry land the sea he turn'd,
       and they a passage had;
     Ev'n marching through the flood on foot,
       there we in him were glad.
7    He ruleth ever by his pow'r;
       his eyes the nations see:
     O let not the rebellious ones
       lift up themselves on high.

8    Ye people, bless our God; aloud
       the voice speak of his praise:
9    Our soul in life who safe preserves,
       our foot from sliding stays.
10   For thou didst prove and try us, Lord,
       as men do silver try;
11   Brought'st us into the net, and mad'st
       bands on our loins to lie.

12   Thou hast caus'd men ride o'er our heads;
       and though that we did pass
     Through fire and water, yet thou brought'st
       us to a wealthy place.
13   I'll bring burnt off `rings to thy house;
       to thee my vows I'll pay,
14   Which my lips utter'd, my mouth spake,
       when trouble on me lay.

15   Burnt-sacrifices of fat rams
       with incense I will bring;
     Of bullocks and of goats I will
       present an offering.
16   All that fear God, come, hear, I'll tell
       what he did for my soul.
17   I with my mouth unto him cry'd,
       my tongue did him extol.

18   If in my heart I sin regard,
       the Lord me will not hear:
19   But surely God me heard, and to
       my prayer's voice gave ear.
20   O let the Lord, our gracious God,
       for ever blessed be,
     Who turned not my pray'r from him,
       nor yet his grace from me.
