My song shall be alway
Language: English after the Latin
My song shall be alway of the loving-kindness of the Lord :
with my mouth will I ever be shewing forth thy truth from one generation to another.
O Lord, the very heavens shall praise thy wondrous works :
and thy truth in the congregation of the saints.
For who is he among the clouds : that shall be compared unto the Lord?
And what is he among the gods : that shall be like unto the Lord?
God is very greatly to be feared in the council of the saints :
and to be had in reverence of all them that are round about him
O Lord God of hosts, who is like unto thee? :
thy truth, most mighty Lord, is on every side.
Thou rulest the raging of the sea :
thou stillest the waves thereof when they arise.
Thou hast a mighty arm : strong is thy hand,
and high is thy right hand.
Righteousness and equity are the habitation of thy seat :
mercy and truth shall go before thy face.
