Bless'd is the man whom thou, O LORD.
Bless God, my soul; thou, Lord, alone
Bless God, ye servants, that attend
But who thine anger's dread effects .

Save me, O God, from waves that roll
Say ye, the LORD shall not regard

That man is bless'd who stands in awe
Thee I will bless, my God and King
The good man's way is Gov's delight
The heavens declare thy glory, LORD
The LORD a holy temple hath
The LORD does them support that fall.
The LORD hath spoke, the mighty God
The LORD himself, the mighty LORD.
The LORD look'd down from heaven's high tower
The LORD, the only God, is great ..
The LORD unto my Lord thus spake
The love that to thy laws I bear
The man is tolest that fears the LORD

Thus God declares his sovereign will
Thy chastning wrath, O LORD, restrain

Thy presence, LORD, hach mc supplied
Thy sacred word, my joyful breast.
Thy wondrous power, Almighty LORD,
Thy word is to my feet a lamp

To my complaint, O LORD my God
To my request and earnest cry
To Sion's hill I lift my eyes .
We build with fruitless cost, unless
Whate'er the mighty Loro decrees
When I pour out my soul in prayer
When we, our weary limbs to rest
While I the King's loud praise rehearse
Whom should I fear, since God to me
Who place on Sion's God their trust.
With cheerful notes let all the earth
With glory clad, with strength array'd
With me, thy servant, thou hast dealt
With my whole heart, my God and King
With my whole heart tu God I call'd
With one consent let all the earth
