Psalm 33. Exultate, justi.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Sixth Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. REJOICE in the Lord, O ye righteous; *
    for it becometh well the just to be thankful.
  2. Praise the Lord with harp; *
    sing praises unto him with the lute, and instrument of ten strings.
  3. Sing unto the Lord a new song; *
    sing praises lustily unto him with a good courage.
  4. For the word of the Lord is true; *
    and all his works are faithful.
  5. He loveth righteousness and judgment; *
    the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.
  6. By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; *
    and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.
  7. He gathereth the waters of the sea together, as it were upon an heap; *
    and layeth up the deep, as in a treasure-house.
  8. Let all the earth fear the Lord: *
    stand in awe of him, all ye that dwell in the world.
  9. For he spake, and it was done; *
    he commanded, and it stood fast.
  10. The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought, *
    and maketh the devices of the people to be of none effect, and casteth out the counsels of princes.
  11. The counsel of the Lord shall endure for ever, *
    and the thoughts of his heart from generation to generation.
  12. Blessed are the people whose God is the Lord Jehovah; *
    and blessed are the folk that he hath chosen to him, to be his inheritance.
  13. The Lord looketh down from heaven, and beholdeth all the children of men; *
    from the habitation of his dwelling, he considereth all them that dwell on the earth.
  14. He fashioneth all the hearts of them, *
    and understandeth all their works.
  15. There is no king that can be saved by the multitude of an host; *
    neither is any mighty man delivered by much strength.
  16. A horse is counted but a vain thing to save a man; *
    neither shall he deliver any man by his great strength.
  17. Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, *
    and upon them that put their trust in his mercy;
  18. To deliver their soul from death, *
    and to feed them in the time of dearth.
  19. Our soul hath patiently tarried for the Lord; *
    for he is our help and our shield.
  20. For our heart shall rejoice in him; *
    because we have hoped in his holy Name.
  21. Let thy merciful kindness, O Lord, be upon us, *
    like as we do put our trust in thee.
