Psalm 29: Our Mighty God

You mighty children of the King,
Come listen to me as I sing,
And render to the Lord His due,
And give Him strength and glory too.
Yes, render glory to His name,
And bow in holiness arrayed.
Boast not in deeds that you have done,
For God alone has seen them done.
The splendor of your native land,
Was given by Jehovah’s hand.
Your wickedness and ugly sin,
Are covered and atoned by Him.
Jehovah’s voice is over seas,
The waters of my enemies,
And there was light! When thunder blows,
Who walks upon the tempest’s throes.
Jehovah’s voice in power is,
And majesty is always His,
Who makes a road where waters were,
And all His enemies deters.
Jehovah’s voice has shattered trees,
And sycamores he breaks with ease,
Who causes cedars to be felled,
To make a house in which to dwell.
He frightens every foreign foe,
And every nation He will own,
That they will dance with joy renewed,
As little calves who see their food.
Jehovah’s voice in fire spews,
As over Egypt which he hewed.
In tongues of fire He descends,
To every nation grace extends.
Jehovah’s voice the deserts shake,
And over darkness dawn will break,
And Elath writhes in labor pains,
He strips the forests in His claim.
In wonder let us glory shout,
To God who brought the flood about.
Jehovah reigns, and Him alone!
Jehovah sits on kingly throne,
And all His sons in strength increase,
He fills our hearts with holy peace.
You mighty men, in awe bow down,
Before Him cast your feeble crown,
And boldly ride against the foe,
For in the strength of Christ you go.

Psalm 28: Answered Prayer

“It’s unto Thee, O Lord, my rock, I call,
My anchor point my guide, my All in All.
Do not be silent, Lord, regarding me,
Lest like the wicked I’m cut off from Thee.
Could I exalt Thee if I fall to death?
Or tell Thy glory if I have no breath?
Oh! Listen, Lord, unto my cry to thee,
For to Thy temple I have made my plea,
And save me from the ways of wicked men,
For they are sold completely to their sin.
But deal with them as they have dealt with Thee,
For they rebuke Thee with impunity.”
Ah! He has silenced all the wicked men!
He heard the prayer that I made to Him!
The Lord I bless – my strength, my shield, my trust,
He has my heart, who helped me from the dust.
And all His people with His strength are filled,
His strength which is on His anointed spilled.
And in that power from faith to faith we go,
To make salvations from our every foe.
Then make Thy people safe from foe and sin.
And bless Thine own inheritance in them,
Provide for them through each and every need,
And carry them into eternity.

Psalm 27: To Turn My Heart

My God, my holy light by which I see,
My God, my saving life which hallows me,
My God, my sacred might protecting keeps,
Then what could make me tremble – make me fear?

My foes who sought to snare my life and soul,
Have stumbled on the air and broke their skulls,
Though armies siege, aware God keeps me whole,
My trust in Him who keeps His mercy near.

But one thing I have asked of God most high,
To in His presence bask, His beauty spy,
And take my mental task to truth descry,
To hide myself in Him, my Rock appear.

Oh, hear me when I call, and answer me!
Oh, do not let me fall, but hear my plea.
Direct my paths and all the thoughts I see,
I know that when I pray You surely hear.

Though every one forsakes my life in hell,
In God I put my faith and am compelled,
To speak to fellow saints, His wonders tell,
Proclaim His praise! His faithful worship rear!
