|145 (1)||Psalm 145 Version 1||LM|
|O LORD, Thou art my God and King,
And I will ever bless Thy name,
I will extol Thee every day,
And evermore Thy praise proclaim.
|2||The Lord is greatly to be praised;
His greatness is beyond our thought;
From age to age His people shall
Speak of the wonders God has wrought.
|3||The Lord our God is rich in grace,
Most tender and compassionate,
His anger is most slow to rise,
His lovingkindness is so great.
|4||Eternal is Thy kingdom, Lord,
For ever strong and ever sure;
While generations come and go
Still Thy dominion shall endure.
|5||The Lord upholds the faltering feet,
And makes the weak securely stand,
The burdened ones, bowed down with grief,
Are helped by His most gracious hand.
|6||The Lord is just in all His ways,
In all His works the Lord is kind,
And all that call on Him in truth,
In Him a present helper find.
|The Psalter, 1912|
