Psalm 145

David’s Psalm of praise.

First Version (C.M.)


1I’ll thee extol, my God, O King;

I’ll bless thy name always.

2Thee will I bless each day, and will

thy name for ever praise.

3Great is the Lord, much to be prais’d;

his greatness search exceeds.

4Race unto race shall praise thy works,

and shew thy mighty deeds.

5I of thy glorious majesty

the honour will record;

I’ll speak of all thy mighty works,

which wondrous are, O Lord.

6Men of thine acts the might shall show,

thine acts that dreadful are;

And I, thy glory to advance,

thy greatness will declare.

7The mem’ry of thy goodness great

they largely shall express;

With songs of praise they shall extol

thy perfect righteousness.

8The Lord is very gracious,

in him compassions flow;

In mercy he is very great,

and is to anger slow.

9The Lord Jehovah unto all

his goodness doth declare;

And over all his other works

his tender mercies are.

10Thee all thy works shall praise, O Lord,

and thee thy saints shall bless;

11They shall thy kingdom’s glory show,

thy pow’r by speech express:

12To make the sons of men to know

his acts done mightily,

And of his kingdom th’ excellent

and glorious majesty.

13Thy kingdom shall for ever stand,

thy reign through ages all.

14God raiseth all that are bow’d down,

upholdeth all that fall.

15The eyes of all things wait on thee,

the giver of all good;

And thou, in time convenient,

bestow’st on them their food:

16Thine hand thou open’st lib’rally,

and of thy bounty gives

Enough to satisfy the need

of ev’ry thing that lives.

17The Lord is just in all his ways,

holy in his works all.

18God’s near to all that call on him,

in truth that on him call.

19He will accomplish the desire

of those that do him fear:

He also will deliver them,

and he their cry will hear.

20The Lord preserves all who him love,

that nought can them annoy:

But he all those that wicked are

will utterly destroy.

21My mouth the praises of the Lord

to publish cease shall never:

Let all flesh bless his holy name

for ever and for ever.
