ST. STEPHEN (NEWINGTON) | Same-Tune Hymns | Bible Passage
William Jones, 1726-1800
1 PRAISE ye the Lord: him praise, my soul.
2 I'll praise God while I live;
While I have being to my God
In songs I'll praises give.
3 Trust not in princes, nor man's son,
In whom there is no stay:
4 His breath departs, to's earth he turns;
That day his thoughts decay.
5 O happy is that man and blest,
Whom Jacob's God doth aid;
Whose hope upon the Lord doth rest,
And on his God is stayed:
6 Who made the earth and heavens high,
Who made the swelling deep,
And all that is within the same;
Who truth doth ever keep:
7 Who righteous judgment executes
For those oppressed that be,
Who to the hungry giveth food,
And sets the prisoners free.
8 The Lord doth give the blind their sight,
The bowed down doth raise:
The Lord doth dearly love all those
Who walk in upright ways.
9 The stranger's shield, the widow's stay,
The orphan's help is he:
But yet by him the wicked's way
Turned upside down shall be.
10 The Lord shall reign for evermore:
Thy God, O Zion, he
To generations all shall reign.
Praise to the Lord give ye.
