Easy Play Psalm 149
2014 BOOK OF PRAISE OF THE CANADIAN REFORMED CHURCHES
1. Praised be the LORD! Let all adore him
and with a new song come before him.
Let all the faithful congregation
praise him with jubilation.
Israël, people of God’s choice,
in him, your Maker, now rejoice.
Children of Zion, shout and sing!
Praise your exalted King!
2. Sing to the LORD, his praise advancing
with harp and tambourine and dancing,
for in his people he takes pleasure;
they are his joy and treasure.
See how he crowns with victory
those who walk in humility.
Let them in glorious fame delight,
rejoicing through the night.
3. Let from their lips be heard God’s praises
while their right hand in vengeance raises
the two-edged sword of vindication
to vanquish heathen nations.
May they God’s punishment inflict
on those who his commands reject
and bind their kings with iron chains
until no foe remains.
4. Let Israel chastise their princes
and punish them for their offences.
By judgment passed and sentence given,
they to their doom are driven.
So let God’s people raise their voice
and in this triumph all rejoice.
He grants them glory as reward.
O Zion, praise the LORD!
