Scottish Psalter: Psalm 29

Psalm 29: Give ye unto the Lord, ye sons

A Psalm of David.

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

1 Give ye unto the Lord, ye sons that of the mighty be, All strength and glory to the Lord with cheerfulness give ye.

2 Unto the Lord the glory give that to his name is due; And in the beauty of holiness unto Jehovah bow.

3 The Lord’s voice on the waters is; the God of majesty Doth thunder, and on multitudes of waters sitteth he.

4 A pow’rful voice it is that comes out from the Lord most high; The voice of that great Lord is full of glorious majesty.

5 The voice of the Eternal doth asunder cedars tear; Yea, God the Lord doth cedars break that Lebanon doth bear.

6 He makes them like a calf to skip, ev’n that great Lebanon, And, like to a young unicorn, the mountain Sirion.

7 God’s voice divides the flames of fire; 8 The desert it doth shake: The Lord doth make the wilderness of Kadesh all to quake.

9 God’s voice doth make the hinds to calve, it makes the forest bare: And in his temple ev’ry one his glory doth declare.

10 The Lord sits on the floods; the Lord sits King, and ever shall. 11 The Lord will give his people strength, and with peace bless them all.
