Psalm 149

Julie Tennent

1O praise the Lord, all people, a new song let us sing;
His praise in the assembly of saints let us now bring;
2Let Israel rejoice in their Maker – let them sing;
Let all the sons of Zion be glad in their great King!

3Let them with dancing praise Him; with tambourine and song;
With harp make praise and music which to His name belong;
4For God the Lord takes pleasure in those who are His own;
He crowns them with salvation, the humble ones alone.

5Let godly ones rejoice in this honor God bestows,
And let them sing for joy on their beds when eyelids close;
6May His praise fill their mouth, and a two-edged sword their hand,
7To execute God’s vengeance on nations through the land.

8For punishment will come on the peoples and their kings;
They will be bound with fetters; for them iron shackles bring,
9To carry out the sentence, the judgment God accords;
This is His people’s honor, their glory – Praise the Lord!
