Ye righteous in the Lord rejoice it is a




Ye righteous, in the Lord rejoice;
it is a seemly sight,
That upright men with thankful voice
should praise the Lord of light.


Praise ye the Lord with harp, and sing
to him with psaltery;
With ten-stringed instrument sounding,
praise ye the Lord most high:


Sing to the Lord a song most new,
with courage give him praise;
For why? his word is ever true,
his works and all his ways:


Both judgement, equity, and right,
he ever loved and will;
And with his gifts he doth delight
the earth throughout to fill.


For by the word of God alone
the heav'ns above were wrought,
Their hosts and powers ev'ry one
his breath to pass hath brought.


The waters great gathered hath he
on heaps within the shore,
And hid them in the depth to be
as in a house of store.


Let all the earth then fear the Lord,
and keep his righteous law;
And all the world with one accord
dread him, and stand in awe.


What he commanded, wrought it was
at once with utmost speed;
What he doth will, is brought to pass
with full effect indeed.


The counsels of the nations rude
the Lord doth bring to naught;
He doth defeat the multitude
of their device and thought:


But his decrees continue still,
they never slack nor 'swage;
The motions of his mind and will
take place in every age.
