Psalter manuscript

Psalm 65: Praise awaits our God in Zion


Praise awaits our God in Zion
There the vow shall be performed;
Though iniquity is raging
Rebel hearts shall be transformed.
Ransom payment was supplied
When the Christ was crucified!

Blessed is every man God chooses,
Satisfaction he shall find;
Choicest treasures in His temple
Will enthral his heart and mind.
By great works of righteousness
God will surely answer us!

Every nation under heaven,
Highest mountain, deepest sea,
Shall, subdued beneath His power,
Trust no more in what they see.
God who calms the oceans’ noise,
Shall command them to rejoice!

Lord of every earthly harvest,
Light and sunshine You provide,
Overturn our rebel blindness,
Hearts and minds please open wide;
May these valleys once more sing
Songs of gladness to the King!
