PSALM 111
Common Meter: 8,6,8,6
1Praise ye the Lord: with my whole heart
I will God's praise declare,
Where the assemblies of the just
and congregations are.
2The whole works of the Lord our God
are great above all measure,
Sought out they are of ev'ry one
that doth therein take pleasure.
3His work most honourable is,
most glorious and pure,
And his untainted righteousness
for ever doth endure.
4His works most wonderful he hath
made to be thought upon:
The Lord is gracious,
and he is full of compassion.
5He giveth meat unto all those
that truly do him fear;
And evermore his covenant
he in his mind will bear.
6He did the power of his works
unto his people show,
When he the heathen's heritage
upon them did bestow.
7His handy-works are truth and right;
all his commands are sure:
8And, done in truth and uprightness,
they evermore endure.
9He sent redemption to his folk;
his covenant for aye
He did command: holy his name
and rev'rend is alway.
10Wisdom's beginning is God's fear:
good understanding they
Have all that his commands fulfill:
his praise endures for aye.
