Psalm 99

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

1    Th' eternal Lord doth reign as king,
       let all the people quake;
     He sits between the cherubims,
       let th' earth be mov'd and shake.
2    The Lord in Sion great and high
       above all people is;
3    Thy great and dreadful name (for it
       is holy) let them bless.

4    The king's strength also judgment loves;
       thou settlest equity:
     Just judgment thou dost execute
       in Jacob righteously.
5    The Lord our God exalt on high,
       and rev'rently do ye
     Before his footstool worship him:
       the Holy One is he.

6    Moses and Aaron `mong his priests,
       Samuel, with them that call
     Upon his name: these call'd on God,
       and he them answer'd all.
7    Within the pillar of the cloud
       he unto them did speak:
     The testimonies he them taught,
       and laws, they did not break.

8    Thou answer'dst them, O Lord our God;
       thou wast a God that gave
     Pardon to them, though on their deeds
       thou wouldest vengeance have.
9    Do ye exalt the Lord our God,
       and at his holy hill
     Do ye him worship: for the Lord
       our God is holy still.
