|1||Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous! |
Praise befits the upright.
|Rejoice in the Lord O ye righteous. Psalm 33(v32)|
|2||Praise the LORD with the lyre, |
make melody to him with the harp of ten strings!
|3||Sing to him a new song, |
play skilfully on the strings, with loud shouts.
|4||For the word of the LORD is upright; |
and all his work is done in faithfulness.
|5||He loves righteousness and justice; |
the earth is full of the steadfast love of the LORD.
|6||By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, |
and all their host by the breath of his mouth.
|7||He gathered the waters of the sea as in a bottle; |
he put the deeps in storehouses.
|8||Let all the earth fear the LORD, |
let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him!
|9||For he spoke, and it came to be; |
he commanded, and it stood forth.
|10||The LORD brings the counsel of the nations to nought;|
he frustrates the plans of the peoples.
|11||The counsel of the LORD stands for ever, |
the thoughts of his heart to all generations.
|12||Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, |
the people whom he has chosen as his heritage!
|13||The LORD looks down from heaven, |
he sees all the sons of men;
|14||from where he sits enthroned he looks forth on all the inhabitants of the earth,|
|15||he who fashions the hearts of them all, and observes all their deeds.|
|16||A king is not saved by his great army; |
a warrior is not delivered by his great strength.
|17||The war horse is a vain hope for victory, |
and by its great might it cannot save.
|18||Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear him, |
on those who hope in his steadfast love,
|19||that he may deliver their soul from death, |
and keep them alive in famine.
|20||Our soul waits for the LORD; |
he is our help and shield.
|21||Yea, our heart is glad in him, |
because we trust in his holy name.
|22||Let thy steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us, |
even as we hope in thee.
