Melody from Scottish Psalter, 1615 (1635 rhythm)
1 IN Judah God is known, his name
Is great in Israel;
2 In Salem is his holy place,
In Zion he doth dwell.
3 There arrows of the bow he brake,
The shield, the sword, the war.
4 More glorious thou than hills of prey,
More excellent by far.
5 Those that were stout of heart are spoiled,
They slept their sleep outright;
And none of those their hands did find,
That were the men of might.
6 When thy rebuke, O Jacob's God,
Had forth against them passed,
Their horses and their chariots were
Into a dead sleep cast.
7 Thou, even thou, art to be feared,
And what man then is he
That may stand up before thy sight,
If once thou angry be?
8 From heaven thou madest judgment heard;
The earth was still with fear,
9 When God to judgment rose, to save
All meek on earth that were.
10 Surely the very wrath of man
Unto thy praise redounds;
Thou to the remnant of his wrath
Wilt set restraining bounds.
11 Vow to the Lord your God, and pay:
All ye that near him be,
Bring gifts and presents unto him;
For to be feared is he.
12 For he the spirit shall cut off
Of those that princes be:
Unto the kings that are on earth
Most terrible is he.
