And waits with salvation
12 Praise him for all the mighty acts The humble to bless.
Which he in our behalf has done; 3 With glory adorn'd,
His kindness this return exacts,
His people shall sing
With which our praise should equal run. To God, who their heads
3 Let the shrill trumpet's warlike voice With safety doth shield;
Make rocks and hills his praise rebound: Such honour and triumph
Praise him with harp's melodious noise,
His favour shall bring:
And gentle psaltery's silver sound.
O therefore, for ever
All praise to him yield!
4 Let them who joyful hymns compose,
To cymbals set their songs of praise ;
PSALM 124. L. M.
To well-tuned cymbals, and to those
From the cl. Psalm of David.
That loudly sound on soleinn days.
PRAISE the Lord in that blest place,
From whence his goodness largely | 5 Let all that vital breath enjoy,
The breath he does to them afford,
Praise him in heaven where he his face, In just returns of praise employ:
Unveil’d, in perfect glory shows.
Let every creature praise the Lord !
