Psalm 138: Thee will I praise with all my heart
A Psalm of David.
Meter: C.M. (8,6,8,6)
1 Thee will I praise with all my heart, I will sing praise to thee 2 Before the gods: And worship will toward thy sanctuary.
I’ll praise thy name, ev’n for thy truth, and kindness of thy love; For thou thy word hast magnify’d all thy great name above.
3 Thou didst me answer in the day when I to thee did cry; And thou my fainting soul with strength didst strengthen inwardly.
4 All kings upon the earth that are shall give thee praise, O Lord, When as they from thy mouth shall hear thy true and faithful word.
5 Yea, in the righteous ways of God with gladness they shall sing: For great’s the glory of the Lord; who doth for ever reign.
6 Though God be high, yet he respects all those that lowly be; Whereas the proud and lofty ones afar off knoweth he.
7 Though I in midst of trouble walk, I life from thee shall have: ’Gainst my foes’ wrath thou’lt stretch thine hand; thy right hand shall me save.
8 Surely that which concerneth me the Lord will perfect make: Lord, still thy mercy lasts; do not thine own hands’ works forsake.
