Melody from Scottish Psalter, 1615
1 GIVE praise and thanks unto the Lord,
For bountiful is he;
His tender mercy doth endure
2 God's mighty works who can express?
Or show forth all his praise?
3 Blessed are they that judgment keep,
And justly do always.
4 Remember me, Lord, with that love
Which thou to thine dost bear;
With thy salvation, O my God,
To visit me draw near:
5 That I thy chosen's good may see,
And in their joy rejoice;
And may with thine inheritance
Triumph with cheerful voice.
6 We with our fathers sinned have,
And of iniquity
Too long we have the workers been;
We have done wickedly.
7 The wonders great, which thou, O Lord,
Didst work in Egypt's land,
Our fathers, though they them beheld,
Yet did not understand:
And they thy mercies' multitude
Kept not in memory;
But at the sea, even the Red Sea,
Rebelled most grievously.
8 Nevertheless he saved them,
Even for his own name's sake;
That so he might to be well known
His mighty power make.
9 The Red Sea also he rebuked,
And then dried up it was:
Through depths, as through the wilderness,
He safely made them pass.
10 From hands of those that hated them
He did his people save;
And from the foeman's cruel hand
To them redemption gave.
11 Thc waters overwhelmed their foes;
Not one was left alive.
12 Then they believed his word, and praise
To him in songs did give.
13 But soon did they his mighty works
And on his counsel and his will
Did not wait patiently;
14 They lusted in the wilderness,
In desert God did tempt.
15 He gave them what they sought, but to
Their soul he leanness sent.
16 They envied Moses in the camp,
And grudged his rule to see;
Aaron, Jehovah's holy one,
They viewed with jealousy.
17 Therefore the earth did open wide,
And Dathan did devour,
And alt Abiram's company
Did cover in that hour.
18 Likewise among their company
A fire was kindled then;
And so the hot consuming flame
Burnt up these wicked men.
19 Upon the hill of Horeb they
An idol-calf did frame,
A molten image they did make,
And worshipped the same.
20 And changed the High and Holy One,
Who all their glory was,
Into the likeness of an ox
That feedeth upon grass.
21 They did forget the mighty God,
Who had their saviour been,
By whom such great things brought to pass
They had in Egypt seen.
22 He in the land of Ham wrought signs,
Things terrible did he,
When he his mighty hand and arm
Stretched out at the Red Sea.
23 Then said he, he would them destroy,
Had not, his wrath to stay,
His chosen Moses stood in breach,
That them he should not slay.
24 Yea, they despised the pleasant land,
Believed not his word:
25 But in their tents they murmured,
Not hearkening to the Lord.
26 To slay them in the desert then
He lifted up his hand:
27 'Mong nations to o'erthrow their seed,
And scatter in each land.
28 They unto Baal-peor did
The sacrifices of the dead
They impiously ate.
29 Thus by inventions of their own
They did provoke his ire;
And then upon them suddenly
The plague brake in as fire.
30 Then Phinehas stood up and judged,
And so the plague did cease;
31 To ages all this counted was
To him for righteousness.
32 And at the waters, where they strove,
They did him angry make,
In such sort, that it fared ill
With Moses for their sake:
33 Because against his spirit they
Rebelled most grievously,
So that he uttered with his lips
34 Nor, as the Lord commanded them,
Did they the nations slay:
35 But with the heathen mingled were
And learned of them their way.
36 Their idols they did serve, and these
Became to them a snare;
37 They unto demons sacrificed
Their sons and daughters there.
38 In their own children's guiltless blood
Their hands they did imbrue,
Whom unto Canaan's idols they
For sacrifices slew:
So was the land defiled with blood.
39 Stained by their works were they:
And by inventions of their own
They wantonly did stray.
40 For this against his people burned
The anger of the Lord;
And he his own inheritance
In righteousness abhorred.
41 He gave them to the heathen's power;
Their foes did them command:
42 Their enemies them oppressed, they were
Made subject to their hand.
43 He many times delivered them,
Yet still they did rebel
With counsels vain, and by their sin
Into destruction fell.
44 Yet their affliction he beheld,
When he did hear their cry:
45 And he for them his covenant
Did call to memory;
46 After his mercies' multitude
He did repent, and make
Them to be pitied of all those
Who did them captive take.
47 Save, Lord our God, and gather us
The heathen from among,
That we thy holy name may praise
In a triumphant song.
48 Blessed be Jehovah, Israel's God,
To all eternity:
Let all the people say, Amen.
Praise to the Lord give ye.
