Psalm 149: Praise ye the Lord: unto him sing
Meter: C.M. (8,6,8,6)
1 Praise ye the Lord: unto him sing a new song, and his praise In the assembly of his saints in sweet psalms do ye raise.
2 Let Isr’el in his Maker joy, and to him praises sing: Let all that Sion’s children are be joyful in their King.
3 O let them unto his great name give praises in the dance; Let them with timbrel and with harp in songs his praise advance.
4 For God doth pleasure take in those that his own people be; And he with his salvation the meek will beautify.
5 And in his glory excellent let all his saints rejoice: Let them to him upon their beds aloud lift up their voice.
6 Let in their mouth aloft be rais’d the high praise of the Lord, And let them have in their right hand a sharp two-edged sword;
7 To execute the vengeance due upon the heathen all, And make deserved punishment upon the people fall.
8 And ev’n with chains, as pris’ners, bind their kings that them command; Yea, and with iron fetters strong, the nobles of their land.
9 On them the judgment to perform found written in his word: This honour is to all his saints. O do ye praise the Lord.
