Psalm 115. Non nobis, Domine.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Twenty-third Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your Name give glory; *
    because of your love and because of your faithfulness.
  2. Why should the heathen say, *
    Where then is their God?
  3. Our God is in heaven; *
    whatever he wills to do he does.
  4. Their idols are silver and gold, *
    the work of human hands.
  5. They have mouths, but they cannot speak; *
    eyes have they, but they cannot see;
  6. They have ears, but they cannot hear; *
    noses, but they cannot smell;
  7. They have hands, but they cannot feel; feet, but they cannot walk; *
    they make no sound with their throat.
  8. Those who make them are like them, *
    and so are all who put their trust in them.
  9. O Israel, trust in the Lord; *
    he is their help and their shield.
  10. O house of Aaron, trust in the Lord; *
    he is their help and their shield.
  11. You who fear the Lord, trust in the Lord; *
    he is their help and their shield.
  12. The Lord has been mindful of us, and he will bless us; *
    he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron;
  13. He will bless those who fear the Lord, *
    both small and great together.
  14. May the Lord increase you more and more, *
    you and your children after you.
  15. May you be blessed by the Lord, *
    the maker of heaven and earth.
  16. The heaven of heavens is the Lord's, *
    but he entrusted the earth to its peoples.
  17. The dead do not praise the Lord, *
    nor all those who go down into silence;
  18. But we will bless the Lord, *
    from this time forth for evermore. Hallelujah!
