4 He counts the number of the stars ;
He names them ev'ry one. 5 Great is our Lord, and of great pow'r;
His wisdom search can none. 6 The Lord lifts up the meek; and casts
The wicked to the ground. 7 Sing to the Lord, and give him thanks;
On harp hiš praises sound; 8 Who covereth the heav'n with clouds,
Who for the earth below
Upon the mountains grow.
The ravens young that cry. 10 His pleasure not in horses' strength,
Nor in man's legs, doth lie.
The Lord doth pleasure take;
do By hope themselves betake. 12 The Lord praise, O Jerusalem ;
Sion, thy God confess: 13 For thy gates' bars he maketh strong;
Thy sons in thee doth bless. 14 He in thy borders maketh peace ;
With fine wheat filleth thee. 15 He sends forth his command on earth,
His word runs speedily. 16 Hoar-frost, like ashes, scatt'reth he;
Like wool he snow doth give: 17 Like morsels casteth forth his ice;
Who in its cold can live?
And melteth them again;
The waters flow amain.
19 The doctrine of his holy word
To Jacob he doth show;
Gives Israel to know. 20 To

O do ye praise the Lord.
All nature's universal choir,
We sing to God with joyful heart.
In heights praise to him be. [Lord, 2 All ye his angels, praise ye him;
His hosts all, praise him ye. 3 O praise ye him, both sun and moon;
Praise him all stars of light. 4 Ye heav'ns of heav'ns him praise, and floods
Above the heavens' height.

Hath them establish'd sure;
Which ever shall endure.
'ry deep will
8 Fire, hail, snow, vapour, stormy wind,
His word that fully keep.. 9 All hills and mountains, fruitful trees,
And all ye cedar's high; 10 Beasts, and all cattle, creeping things,
And all ye birds that fly. 11 Kings of the earth, all nations,
Princes, earth's judges all : 12 Both young men, yea, and maidens too,
old men, and children small.
Alone is excellent :
The earth and firmament.
His saints, exalteth he;
To him. The Lord praise ye.
Another of the same. 1 THE Lord of heav'n confess,
On high his glory raise. 2 Him let all angels bless,
Him all his armies praise. 3
Sun, moon, and stars ;
Ye higher spheres,
And cloudy sky.
Him therefore famous make:
When he the word but spake.. 6 And from that place,
Where fix'd you be
By his decree,
7 Praise God from earth below,
Ye dragons, and ye deeps : 8 Fire, hail, clouds, wind, and snow,
Whom in command he keeps, : 9 Praise
Trees low and tall; 10
Beasts wild and tame All things that creep or fly. 11 Ye kings, ye vulgar throng>
All princes mean or high ; 12 Both men and virgins young,
Evin young and old, 13 Exalt his name;
For much his fame
Above both earth and sky:
Of Isr’el's race,
Near to his grace.
And shine like suns above the skies.
A new song, and his praise
In the assembly of his saints
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." 30 let them unto his great name
Give praises in the dance;
In songs his praise advance.
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:
Aloud lift up their voice.
The high praise of the Lord,
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.
