Psalm 149 - 1st Version
DUNFERMLINE | Same-Tune Hymns | Bible Passage
Melody from Scottish Psalter, 1615
1 PRAISE ye the Lord: unto him sing
A new song, and his praise
In the assembly of his saints
In sweet psalms do ye raise.
2 Let Israel in his Maker joy,
And to him praises sing:
Let all that Zion's children are
Be joyful in their King.
3 O let them unto his great name
Give praises in the dance;
Let them with timbrel and with harp
In songs his praise advance.
4 For God doth pleasure take in those
That his own people be;
And he with his salvation sure
The meek will beautify.
5 And in his glory excellent
Let all his saints rejoice:
Let them to him upon their beds
Aloud lift up their voice.
6 Let in their mouth aloft be raised
The high praise of the Lord,
And let them have in their right hand
A sharp two-edged sword;
7 To execute the vengeance due
Upon the heathen all,
And make deserved punishment
Upon the people fall;
8 With chains as prisoners to bind
Their kings that them command;
Yea, and with iron fetters strong,
The nobles of their land.
9 On them the judgment to perform
Found written in his word:
An honour this to all his saints.
O do ye praise the Lord.
