Praise Proclamation



Tune: Lobe Den Herren

('Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation')

*************

Psalm 45 v.6-7

Your throne, O God, is for

Ever and ever, still stands sure

The sceptre of your kingdom

Is a righteous sceptre, wholesome

You love the right

Though enemies do you fight

You overcome them in your might

 

Psalm 45 v.7 & v.17

Lord Christ, you hate wicked

Therefore your God has you anointed

You with oil of gladness

Above your companions, does you bless

I will make your

Name to be remembered sure

Through all generations e'ermore

 

Psalm 46 v.1-2

God is our refuge, He

A present help in troubles be

Therefore we will not fear

Though the earth may be removed here

Or mountains be

Carried into midst of sea

God shall help us abundantly

 

Psalm 47 v.1-2

Clap hands, all you people

Sing, praise, shout you unto God all

Raise voice of triumph high

For the LORD is great, and is nigh

He awesome be

King over all the earth, see

Reigning in omnipotency

 

Psalm 47 v.6-7

Sing praises to God, sing

Unto Him worthy tributes bring

Sing praises to your King

He be the LORD o'er everything

O'er all earth King

He be, let worship now ring

Sing praises with understanding

          This seems very complicated to me in terms of its rhyme and structure .. I imagine it would be better sung aloud than merely read....

            Thanks Neville. It's them pesky 14-syllable lines, innit? See the first two long lines of each verse in the clip. I've broken it down into 6.8. 6.8.6. Then it's a 4.7.8. Bit tricky too.
            Sing it? Yes,of course I will, but they all run away. lol.
