Scottish Psalter, Aberdeen, 1625
1 MY voice I will lift up to God,
I'll cry to God nor spare;
My voice I will lift up to God,
And he will hear my prayer.
2 In day of woe I sought the Lord;
By night in ceaseless grief
My hand was stretched out to him;
My soul refused relief.
3 I to remembrance God do call,
And then I sigh and mourn;
I with myself commune, my heart
With grief is overborne.
4 Thou dost deny mine eyelids sleep,
Withhold the rest I seek;
My trouble is so great that I
Unable am to speak.
5 I thought on days and years of old,
Recalled my song by night;
6 I with my heart communed, my soul
Made earnest search for light.
7 For ever will the Lord cast off,
And gracious be no more?
8 For ever is his mercy gone?
Fails his word evermore?
9 Is't so that to be gracious
The Lord forgotten hath;
And that his tender mercies he
Hath shut up in his wrath?
10 Then said I, This my weakness is;
But call to mind will I
The years of the right hand of him
Who is the Lord most high.
11 Yea, I remember will the works
Performed by the Lord:
The wonders done of old by thee
I surely will record.
12 Upon thy doings I will muse,
On thy works meditate;
13 Most holy is thy way, O God:
What God like thee is great?
14 Thou art the God that wonders dost
By thy fight hand most strong:
Thy mighty power thou hast declared
The nations all among.
15 To thine own people with thine arm
Thou didst redemption bring;
To Jacob's sons, and to the tribes
Of Joseph that do spring.
16 The waters did thee see, O God,
The waters did thee see;
The depths thereof were troubled all,
For fear aside did flee.
17 The clouds in water forth were poured,
Sound loudly did the sky;
And swiftly through the world abroad
Thine arrows fierce did fly.
18 Thy thunder's voice along the heaven
A mighty noise did make;
Thy lightnings lighten did the world,
Earth trembled and did shake.
19 Thy way is in the sea, and in
The waters great thy path;
Thy footsteps hidden are, O Lord;
None knowledge thereof hath.
20 Thy people thou didst safely lead,
Like to a flock of sheep;
By Moses' hand and Aaron's thou
Didst them conduct and keep.
