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.
