PSALM 148. Second Part. L.M.
Universal praise to God. (cont.)

  2 The Lord, how absolute he reigns!
Let ev'ry angel bend the knee;
Sing of his love in heav'nly strains,
And speak how fierce his terrors be.
  3 Mortals, can you refrain your tongue,
When nature all around you sings?
O for a shout from old and young,
From humble swains and lofty kings!
  4 Wide as his vast dominion lies,
Make the Creator's name be known;
Loud as his thunder shout his praise,
And sound it lofty as his throne.
  5 Jehovah! 'tis a glorious word!
O may it dwell on ev'ry tongue!
But saints, who best have known the Lord,
Are bound to raise the noblest song.

PSALM 149. C.M.
The triumph of believers.

  1 ALL ye that love the Lord, rejoice,
   And let your songs be new;
Amid the church with cheerful voice,
   His later wonders show.
  2 The Jews, the people of his grace,
   Shall their Redeemer sing;
And Gentile nations join the praise,
   While Zion owns her King.
  3 The Lord takes pleasure in the just,
   Whom sinners treat with scorn;
The meek, that lie despis'd in dust,
   Salvation shall adorn.
  4 Saints shall be joyful In their King,
   Ev'n on a dying bed;
And, like the souls, in glory sing:
   For God shall raise the dead.

PSALM 149. C.M.
The triumph of believers. (cont.)

  5 Then his high praise shall fill their tongues,
   Their hand shall wield the sword;
And vengeance shall attend their songs;
   The vengeance of the Lord.
  6 When Christ the judgment-seat ascends,
   And bids the world appear;
Thrones are prepar'd for all his friends,
   Who humbly lov'd him here.
  7 Then shall they rule, with iron rod,
   Nations that dar'd rebel;
And join the sentence of their God,
   On tyrants doom'd to hell.
  8 The royal sinner bound in chains,
   New triumphs shall afford:
Such honour for the saints remains;
   Praise ye, and love the Lord.

PSALM 150. First Part. P.M.
Universal praise to the God of our salvation.

  1    IN Zion's sacred gates,
   Let hymns of praise begin;
   Where acts of faith and love
   With ceaseless beauty shine:
In mercy there, while God is known,
Before his throne, with songs appear.
  2    In heav'n, his house on high,
   Ye angels, lift your voice;
   Let heav'nly harps resound,
   And happy saints rejoice:
The glories sing, that ever shine,
With pomp divine, around your King.
  3    His wondrous acts demand,
   His wisdom and his grace,
   The labours of our hands,
   And transports of our praise:
