The Lord is King, be the people never so unpatient *
he sitteth between the cherubims, be the earth never so unquiet.
The Lord is great in Sion *
and high above all people.
They shall give thanks unto thy Name *
which is great, wonderful, and holy.
The King’s power loveth judgement; thou hast prepared equity *
thou hast executed judgement and righteousness in Jacob.
O magnify the Lord our God *
and fall down before his footstool, for he is holy.
Moses and Aaron among his priests, and Samuel among such as call upon his Name *
these called upon the Lord, and he heard them.
He spake unto them out of the cloudy pillar *
for they kept his testimonies, and the law that he gave them.
Thou heardest them, O Lord our God *
thou forgavest them, O God, and punishedst their own inventions.
O magnify the Lord our God, and worship him upon his holy hill *
for the Lord our God is holy.
O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands *
serve the Lord with gladness, and come before his presence with a song.
Be ye sure that the Lord he is God *
it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
O go your way into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise *
be thankful unto him, and speak good of his Name.
For the Lord is gracious, his mercy is everlasting *
and his truth endureth from generation to generation.
Misericordiam et judicium
My song shall be of mercy and judgement *
unto thee, O Lord, will I sing.
O let me have understanding *
in the way of godliness.
When wilt thou come unto me *
I will walk in my house with a perfect heart.
I will take no wicked thing in hand; I hate the sins of unfaithfulness *
there shall no such cleave unto me.
A froward heart shall depart from me *
I will not know a wicked person.
Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour *
him will I destroy.
Whoso hath also a proud look and high stomach *
I will not suffer him.
Mine eyes look upon such as are faithful in the land *
that they may dwell with me.
Whoso leadeth a godly life *
he shall be my servant.
There shall no deceitful person dwell in my house *
he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
I shall soon destroy all the ungodly that are in the land *
that I may root out all wicked doers from the city of the Lord.
