Psalm 118


[Recommended tunes: v 1-14 Abbey, Southwark, Cheshire; 
v 15-29 Crediton, Warwick, Coleshill]


1O praise the Lord, for he is good;

his mercy lasteth ever.

2Let those of Israel now say,

His mercy faileth never.

3Now let the house of Aaron say,

His mercy lasteth ever.

4Let those that fear the Lord now say,

His mercy faileth never.


5I in distress call'd on the Lord;

the Lord did answer me:

He in a large place did me set,

from trouble made me free.

6The mighty Lord is on my side,

I will not be afraid;

For any thing that man can do

I shall not be dismay'd.


7The Lord doth take my part with them

that help to succour me:

Therefore on those that do me hate

I my desire shall see.

8Better it is to trust in God

than trust in man's defence;

9Better to trust in God than make

princes our confidence.


10The nations, joining all in one,

did compass me about:

But in the Lord's most holy name

I shall them all root out.

11They compass'd me about; I say,

they compass'd me about:

But in the Lord's most holy name

I shall them all root out.


12Like bees they compass'd me about;

like unto thorns that flame

They quenched are: for them shall I

destroy in God's own name.

13Thou sore hast thrust, that I might fall,

but my Lord helped me.

14God my salvation is become,

my strength and song is he.


15In dwellings of the righteous

is heard the melody

Of joy and health: the Lord's right hand

doth ever valiantly.

16The right hand of the mighty Lord

exalted is on high;

The right hand of the mighty Lord

doth ever valiantly.


17I shall not die, but live, and shall

the works of God discover.

18The Lord hath me chastised sore,

but not to death giv'n over.

19O set ye open unto me

the gates of righteousness;

Then will I enter into them,

and I the Lord will bless.


20This is the gate of God, by it

the just shall enter in.

21Thee will I praise, for thou me heard'st

and hast my safety been.

22That stone is made head corner-stone,

which builders did despise:

23This is the doing of the Lord,

and wondrous in our eyes.


24This is the day God made, in it

we'll joy triumphantly.

25Save now, I pray thee, Lord; I pray,

send now prosperity.

26Blessed is he in God's great name

that cometh us to save:

We, from the house which to the Lord

pertains, you blessed have.


27God is the Lord, who unto us

hath made light to arise:

Bind ye unto the altar's horns

with cords the sacrifice.

28Thou art my God, I'll thee exalt;

my God, I will thee praise.

29Give thanks to God, for he is good:

his mercy lasts always.
