Ravenscroft's Psalter, 1621
1 PRAISE ye the Lord: with my whole heart
The Lord's praise I'll declare,
Where the assemblies of thc just
And congregations are.
2 The doings of Jehovah are
Exceeding great in might;
Sought out they are of every one
That doth therein delight.
3 His work most honourable is,
Most glorious and pure,
And his untainted righteousness
For ever doth endure.
4 His works most wondrous he hath made
Remembered still to be;
The Lord is most compassionate,
And merciful is he.
5 He giveth meat unto all those
That truly do him fear;
And evermore his covenant
He in his mind will bear.
6 He did the power of his works
Unto his people show,
When he the heathen's heritage
Upon them did bestow.
7 His hands' works all are truth and right,
All his commands are sure;
8 And, done in truth and uprightness,
They evermore endure.
9 He sent redemption to his folk,
His covenant set for aye:
Holy and reverend is his name,
To be adored alway.
10 Wisdom's beginning is God's fear:
And wise in heart are they
Who his most holy precepts keep:
His praise endures for aye.
