Psalm 75

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

1    To thee, O God, do we give thanks,
       we do give thanks to thee;
     Because thy wondrous works declare
       thy great name near to be.
2    I purpose, when I shall receive
       the congregation,
     That I shall judgment uprightly
       render to ev'ry one.

3    Dissolved is the land, with all
       that in the same do dwell;
     But I the pillars thereof do
       bear up, and stablish well.
4    I to the foolish people said,
       Do not deal foolishly;
     And unto those that wicked are,
       Lift not your horn on high.

5    Lift not your horn on high, nor speak
6      with stubborn neck. But know,
     That not from east, nor west, nor south,
       promotion doth flow.
7    But God is judge; he puts down one,
       and sets another up.
8    For in the hand of God most high
       of red wine is a cup:

     'Tis full of mixture, he pours forth,
       and makes the wicked all
     Wring out the bitter dregs thereof;
       yea, and they drink them shall.
9    But I for ever will declare,
       I Jacob's God will praise.
10   All horns of lewd men I'll cut off;
       but just men's horns will raise.
