Psalter manuscript

Psalm 113: Arise, O servants of the Lord


Arise, O servants of the Lord
And magnify your king;
From dawn’s first rays, till close of night
Praise Him whose ways are robed with light,
That all the heathen nations might
Lift up their hearts and sing!

Above the peoples of this world
God rules, enthroned on high;
His glory to all open eyes
Is plain to see across the skies;
Who else, like Him, is wholly wise?
His reign none can defy!

The Lord with true humility
Beholds our wicked ways;
From dust He raises up poor
Seating great princes them before,
Then babes to barren wombs no more
He gives and so we praise!
