Scottish Psalter: Psalm 113

Psalm 113: Praise God: ye servants of the Lord

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

1 Praise God: ye servants of the Lord, O praise, the Lord’s name praise. 2 Yea, blessed be the name of God from this time forth always.

3 From rising sun to where it sets, God’s name is to be prais’d. 4 Above all nations God is high, ’bove heav’ns his glory rais’d.

5 Unto the Lord our God that dwells on high, who can compare? 6 Himself that humbleth things to see in heav’n and earth that are.

7 He from the dust doth raise the poor, that very low doth lie; And from the dunghill lifts the man oppress’d with poverty;

8 That he may highly him advance, and with the princes set; With those that of his people are the chief, ev’n princes great.

9 The barren woman house to keep he maketh, and to be Of sons a mother full of joy. Praise to the Lord give ye.
