¶ 1 A song or Psalme of David. O God, mine heart is prepared, so is my tongue: I will sing and giue praise.
2 Awake viole and harpe: I will awake early.
3 I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people, and I wil sing vnto thee among the nations.
4 For thy mercy is great aboue the heauens, and thy trueth vnto the clouds.
5 Exalt thy self, O God, aboue the heauens, and let thy glorie be vpon all the earth,
6 That thy beloued may be deliuered: helpe with thy right hand and heare me.
7 God hath spoken in his holinesse: therefore I will reioyce, I shall deuide Shechem and measure the valley of Succoth.
8 Gilead shalbe mine, and Manasseh shalbe mine: Ephraim also shalbe the strength of mine head: Iuda is my lawgiuer.
9 Moab shalbe my washpot: ouer Edom wil I cast out my shoe: vpon Palestina wil I triumph.
10 Who will leade mee into the strong citie? who will bring me vnto Edom?
11 Wilt not thou, O God, which haddest forsaken vs, and diddest not goe foorth, O God, with our armies?
12 Giue vs helpe against trouble: for vaine is the helpe of man.
13 Through God we shall doe valiantly: for he shall treade downe our enemies.
