Psalm 149

(from Day 30/31 Evening Prayer)

Cantate Domino

  1. O SING unto the Lord a new song: let the congregation of saints praise him.
  2. Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: and let the children of Sion be joyful in their King.
  3. Let them praise his Name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with tabret and harp.
  4. For the Lord hath pleasure in his people: and helpeth the meek-hearted.
  5. Let the saints be joyful with glory: let them rejoice in their beds.
  6. Let the praises of God be in their mouth: and a two-edged sword in their hands;
  7. To be avenged of the heathen: and to rebuke the people;
  8. To bind their kings in chains: and their nobles with links of iron.
  9. That they may be avenged of them, as it is written: Such honour have all his saints.
