Psalm 145

Second Version (L.M.)


1O Lord, thou art my God and King;

Thee will I magnify and praise:

I will thee bless, and gladly sing

Unto thy holy name always.

2Each day I rise I will thee bless,

And praise thy name time without end.

3Much to be prais’d, and great God is;

His greatness none can comprehend.

4Race shall thy works praise unto race,

The mighty acts show done by thee.

5I will speak of the glorious grace,

And honour of thy majesty;

Thy wondrous works I will record.

6By men the might shall be extoll’d

Of all thy dreadful acts, O Lord:

And I thy greatness will unfold.

7They utter shall abundantly

The mem’ry of thy goodness great;

And shall sing praises cheerfully,

Whilst they thy righteousness relate.

8The Lord our God is gracious,

Compassionate is he also;

In mercy he is plenteous,

But unto wrath and anger slow.

9Good unto all men is the Lord:

O’er all his works his mercy is.

10Thy works all praise to thee afford:

Thy saints, O Lord, thy name shall bless.

11The glory of thy kingdom show

Shall they, and of thy power tell:

12That so men’s sons his deeds may know,

His kingdom’s grace that doth excel.

13Thy kingdom hath none end at all,

It doth through ages all remain.

14The Lord upholdeth all that fall,

The cast-down raiseth up again.

15The eyes of all things, Lord, attend,

And on thee wait that here do live,

And thou, in season due, dost send

Sufficient food them to relieve.

16Yea, thou thine hand dost open wide,

And ev’ry thing dost satisfy

That lives, and doth on earth abide,

Of thy great liberality.

17The Lord is just in his ways all,

And holy in his works each one.

18He’s near to all that on him call,

Who call in truth on him alone.

19God will the just desire fulfil

Of such as do him fear and dread:

Their cry regard, and hear he will,

And save them in the time of need.

20The Lord preserves all, more and less,

That bear to him a loving heart:

But workers all of wickedness

Destroy will he, and clean subvert.

21Therefore my mouth and lips I’ll frame

To speak the praises of the Lord:

To magnify his holy name

For ever let all flesh accord.
