I will praise Thee, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will show forth all Thy marvelous works. Psalm 9:1
Words: Isaac Watts, The Psalms of David 1719.
Wrath and mercy from the judgment seat.
Music: Beati Immaculati Alexander R. Reinagle, Psalm Tunes for the Voice and Pianoforte circa 1836 (🔊 pdf nwc).
With my whole heart I’ll raise my song,
Thy wonders I’ll proclaim;
Thou, sovereign Judge of right and wrong,
Wilt put my foes to shame.
I’ll sing Thy majesty and grace;
My God prepares His throne
To judge the world in righteousness,
And make His vengeance known.
Then shall the Lord a refuge prove
For all the poor oppressed;
To save the people of His love,
And give the weary rest.
The men that know Thy name will trust
In Thy abundant grace;
For Thou hast ne’er forsook the just,
Who humbly seek Thy face.
Sing praises to the righteous Lord,
Who dwells on Zion’s hill,
Who executes His threatening word,
And doth His grace fulfill.
