Scottish Psalter: Psalm 20

Psalm 20: Jehovah hear thee in the day

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

Meter: C.M. (8,6,8,6)

1 Jehovah hear thee in the day when trouble he doth send: And let the name of Jacob’s God thee from all ill defend.

2 O let him help send from above, out of his sanctuary: From Sion, his own holy hill, let him give strength to thee.

3 Let him remember all thy gifts, accept thy sacrifice: 4 Grant thee thine heart’s wish, and fulfil thy thoughts and counsel wise.

5 In thy salvation we will joy; in our God’s name we will Display our banners: and the Lord thy prayers all fulfil.

6 Now know I God his king doth save: he from his holy heav’n Will hear him, with the saving strength by his own right hand giv’n.

7 In chariots some put confidence, some horses trust upon: But we remember will the name of our Lord God alone.

8 We rise, and upright stand, when they are bowed down, and fall. 9 Deliver, Lord; and let the King us hear, when we do call.
