2014 BOOK OF PRAISE OF THE CANADIAN REFORMED CHURCHES
1. Rejoice before the LORD, you righteous,
and with a new song praise his name.
Praise is most fitting for the upright;
with harp and lyre declare his fame.
For the LORD has spoken
words of truth unbroken;
he is faithful still.
Righteousness he treasures;
earth is with the measures
of his goodness filled.
2. By his command he made the heavens,
their starry host by his decree.
He gathered in his storehouse chambers
the waters of the deepest sea.
Let the earth revere him,
and its peoples fear him.
God spoke, and ’twas done.
He set all creation
firm on its foundation.
Praise him, everyone!
3. God foils the scheming of the nations;
he frustrates all the peoples’ plans.
The LORD is steadfast in his purpose;
for evermore his counsel stands.
Shout with jubilation:
Happy is the nation
where the LORD is God.
Freed from all oppression,
they are his possession.
Spread his praise abroad!
4. The LORD looks down from heaven, his dwelling,
and he observes the human race;
the earth and all its population
he sees from that exalted place.
He knows every nation;
all are his creation,
and their hearts he moulds.
It’s the LORD who ever
sees all their endeavour;
he their works beholds.
5. No king is saved by his great army;
by strength the mighty are not freed.
A war horse gives no hope of victory;
in vain the warrior trusts his steed.
But the LORD our Saviour
looks on those with favour
who his mercy trust,
and when famines grieve them
he will never leave them
prey to death and dust.
6. Our soul awaits the great Redeemer;
our help and shield, him we acclaim.
In him alone our heart rejoices,
for we trust in his holy name.
God of our salvation,
hear our supplication;
to your word be true.
Let your love and favour
rest on us forever,
as we hope in you.
