Psalm 19 - 1st Version
ASPURG | Same-Tune Hymns | Bible Passage
Johann Georg Frech, 1790-1864
1 THE heavens God's glory do I declare,
The skies his hand-works preach:
2 Day utters speech to day, and night
To night doth knowledge teach.
3 There is no speech nor tongue to which
Their voice doth not extend:
4 Their line is gone through all the earth,
Their words to the world's end.
5 There he a tabernacle hath
Erected for the sun;
Who comes like bridegroom from his tent,
Like strong man joys to run.
6 From heaven's end he goeth forth,
Circling to the end again;
And there is nothing from his heat
That hidden doth remain.
7 God's law is perfect, and converts
The soul in sin that lies:
God's testimony is most sure,
And makes the simple wise.
8 The statutes of the Lord are right,
And do rejoice the heart:
The Lord's command is pure, and doth
Light to the eyes impart.
9 Unspotted is the fear of God,
And doth endure for ever:
The judgments of the Lord are true
And righteous altogether.
10 They more than gold, yea, much fine gold,
To be desired are:
Than honey, honey from the comb
That droppeth, sweeter far.
11 Moreover, they thy servant warn
How he his life should frame:
A great reward provided is
For them that keep the same.
12 Who can his errors understand?
From secret faults me cleanse:
13 Thy servant keep thou also back
From all presumptuous sins;
And do not suffer them to have
Dominion over me:
I shall be righteous then, and clear
From great transgression be.
14 The words which from my mouth proceed,
The thoughts sent from my heart,
Accept, O Lord, for thou my strength
And my Redeemer art.
