Psalm 19

2014 BOOK OF PRAISE OF THE CANADIAN REFORMED CHURCHES

1. The spacious heavens declare
God’s glory everywhere;
the skies proclaim his might.
The knowledge they display
day echoes forth to day
and night makes known to night.
They use no speech or word,
yet everywhere is heard
the voice of all creation.
The truth that it expounds
throughout the world resounds
and reaches every nation.

2. God in the firmament
pitched for the sun a tent,
the canopy of night.
It’s like a joyful groom
who from his bridal room
leaps forth with great delight.
Like one who runs a race
with strong and eager pace,
it speeds across the heavens;
the sun its path completes,
and from its piercing heat
not anything is hidden.

3. God’s law is sound and whole;
it will revive the soul,
for it new strength supplies.
His testimony sure,
trustworthy evermore,
will make the simple wise.
His precepts plainly show
how right they are, and so
the heart they cheer and brighten.
The LORD’s commandments pure
shine forth with radiance clear
and so the eyes enlighten.

4. The fear of God is clean
and, free from sin and stain,
forever will endure.
His judgments all express
unfailing righteousness;
the LORD’s decrees are sure.
They far exceed in worth
the finest gold on earth:
his precious testimony!
They even sweeter are
than all that’s sweet and pure
in combs that drip with honey.

5. Your servant, who has heard
the warnings of your word,
to them pays heed, O LORD.
Those walking in your way,
who your commands obey,
will reap a great reward.
But, LORD, who can perceive
what errors one may have
unwittingly committed?
O cleanse me! Let me be
of secret failings free,
of hidden faults acquitted.

6. O LORD, from wilful ways
preserve me all my days:
the rule of sin prevent.
Then I shall blameless be,
from grave offences free,
and wholly innocent.
LORD, hear me as I pray:
let what my tongue may say
and what my heart may ponder
be pleasing in your sight,
Redeemer great in might,
my Rock and my Defender.
