Blest And Happy Is The Man
Dwight Armstrong

Blest and happy is the man Who does never walk astray,
Nor with the ungodly men Stands in sinner's way.
All he does prospers well, But the wicked are not so;
They are chaff before the wind, Driven to and fro.

Ne'er in scorner's chair he sits, For he places his delight
In God's law and meditates On it day and night.
All he does prospers well, But the wicked are not so;
They are chaff before the wind, Driven to and fro.

He shall be a tree that grows, Planted by the river's side,
Which in season yields its fruit; Green its leaves abide.
All he does prospers well, But the wicked are not so;
They are chaff before the wind, Driven to and fro.

Trust In God And Stand In Awe
Psalm 4
Dwight Armstrong

Hear and answer when I call, O Righteous God.
From distress You set me free; Hear now my prayer.
O how men love vanity; Falsehood they seek;
Turning glory into shame; They are misled.

O how long will sons of men love vanity?
O how long love vain intrigues; Seek after lies?
Trust in God and stand in awe, And cease to sin.
Know that God has set apart All godly men.

O that we might see some good! Many will say,
Only look and smile on us, O Righteous God!
God has given me more joy Than they all know;
He alone makes me to dwell Safely in peace.

Give Ear Unto My Words, O Lord
Psalm 5
Dwight Armstrong

Give ear unto my words, O lord, My meditation weigh;
Hear my loud cry, my King, my God, For I to Thee will pray.
Lord Thou shalt early hear my voice; I early will direct
My prayer to Thee, and looking up, An answer will expect.

For Thou art not a God who does In wickedness delight;
No evil shall abide with Thee, Nor fools stand in Thy sight.
All evil doers Thou dost hate, Cut off shall liars be;
The bloody and deceitful man, Abhorred is by Thee.

But I into Thy house will come In Thy abundant grace;
And I will worship in Thy fear Toward Thy holy place.
Because of watchful enemies, O lead me by Thy grace,
And in Thy righteousness, Thy way Make straight before my face.

Let all who trust in Thee be glad, In shouts their praise proclaim;
Thou savest them; let all rejoice Who love Thy Holy Name.
For Lord, unto the righteous man Thou wilt Thy blessing yield;
With favor Thou wilt compass him About as with a shield.

Turn, O God, And Save Me
Psalm 6
Dwight Armstrong

O Lord God, rebuke me not in anger;
Nor in hot displeasure chastise me, O God.
Be gracious, Lord, and show me Your mercy.
Heal me, O God, for I languish and ache.

O Lord God, how long are You in helping?
Turn, O God, and save me; deliver my soul;
For Your great love; for the sake of Your mercies.
For in the grave there is no thought of You.

O Lord God, my bed is wet with weeping,
And I faint with moaning because of my foes.
But God has heard; He has answered my prayer.
My foes shall turn and shall be ashamed.

How Excellent Is Thy Name!
Psalm 8
Dwight Armstrong

How excellent in all the earth, Lord our Lord is Thy name!
Who hast Thy glory far advanced Above the starry frame.
From mouths of babes and infants, Lord, Strength by Thee is ordained,
So that Thy enemies be crushed; Thy vengeful foes restrained.

When I look up unto the heavens Which Thine own fingers framed,
Unto the moon and to the stars, Which were by Thee ordained;
Then say I, what is man that Thou Should be mindful of him?
Or what, the son of man, that Thou So kind to him should be?

For Thou has made Him little less Than the angels above;
With glory and with dignity; With honor crowned his head.
Appointed Lord of all Thy works, All things under His feet;
All sheep and oxen, yes, and beasts That in the field do stray.

I Will Praise Thee, O Eternal!
Psalm 9
Dwight Armstrong

I will praise Thee, O Eternal; I will show forth Thy great works!
O Thou Most High God, Eternal; I will sing praise to Thy Name!
But my foes shall turn and stumble; At Thy presence they shall fall;
The Eternal judges rightly; And forever He will rule!

The Eternal lives forever; He destroys all wicked men;
He removes their name forever; Even their memory dies;
But He judges all with fairness; He will rule with equity;
All who know His Name shall trust Him; He will not forsake His own.

To the Lord who dwells in Zion, Sing to Him and praise His Name!
Tell His deeds among the nations! Tell of all His glorious works!
He avenges all His people; He will not forget their cry;
To the Lord who dwells in Zion; Sing to Him and praise His Name!

Declare His Works To All Nations!
Psalm 9
Dwight Armstrong

I will sing, O Most High; Praises to Thy Name with my whole heart!
And proclaim Thy wonders; I will rejoice and exult in Thee!
My foes fall at Thy sight; For Thou hast maintained my cause and my cry;
God will judge from His throne; He shall remain forevermore!

God will rule, uprightly; Judge the world in righteousness.
The oppressed who seek Him; He will to them a refuge be.
For the Lord will not forget Those who put their trust and confidence in Him.
To the Lord sing praises; Declare His works to all nations!

God Most High in Zion dwells; He will not forget His people;
They declare His great works; And He will not forget their cry.
Rise, O Lord! Put them all in fear! All the nations that forget that Thou art God.
Judge them Lord before Thee; Let the nations know they are but men!

Who Shall Dwell On Thy Holy Hill?
Psalm 15
Dwight Armstrong

O Eternal, who shall dwell in the temple of Thy grace?
Who shall on Thy Holy hill have a fixed abiding place?
He who walks in righteousness, all his actions just and clear;
He whose words the truth express, spoken from a heart sincere.

He who ne'er with slandering tongue utters malice and deceit;
Who will ne'er his neighbor wrong, nor a sland'rous tale repeat.
Who will claim no usury, nor with bribes pollute his hand;
He who thus shall frame his life, shall unmoved forever stand.

The Heavens God's Glory Do Declare
Psalm 19
Dwight Armstrong

The heav'ns God's glory do declare, The skies His handiworks teach;
Day after day their speech pours forth, and knowledge, night after night.
There is no speech nor spoken word; their voice is never heard;
And yet their voice spreads to all the earth, their works to the ends of the world.

The heav'ns a tent for the sun, He made, Which comes forth like a bride groom,
Leaving his chamber, glowing bright, to run his course with joy.
From heaven's end its rising is, its circuit to its ends;
And there is nothing from its heat, no, nothing is hidden thereof.

The law of God is a perfect law, For it converts the soul;
Sure are the sayings of our God, they make the simple wise.
Statutes of God are right and just, and do rejoice the heart;
The Lord's commandments are pure and clear, and light to the mind they impart.

Our God Is Good And Upright
Psalm 25
Dwight Armstrong

Our God is good and upright; the way He'll sinners show.
The meek in judgment He will guide, and make His paths to know.
The whole paths of the Lord are truth and mercy sure
To those that keep His covenant and testimonies pure.

Now, for Thine own name's sake, O Lord, I Thee entreat
To pardon mine iniquity, for it is very great.
What man is he that fears the Lord and doth Him serve?
Him shall He teach of His own way; the way that he should choose.

His soul shall dwell at ease; and his posterity
Shall flourish still and of the earth inheritors shall be.
With those that fear Him is the secret of the Lord;
The knowledge of His covenant He will to them afford.

To Thee I Lift My Soul
Psalm 25
Dwight Armstrong

To Thee I lift my soul;' I trust Thee, O my God;
Let me not be ashamed, nor let my foes triumph o'er me.
Let none that wait on Thee, be put to shame at all;
But those that without cause transgress, let shame upon them fall.

Show me Thy ways, O Lord; O teach Thou me Thy paths;
And in Thy truth lead me Thyself, therein my teacher be.
For Thou art God that dost to me salvation send;
And I upon Thee all the day, expecting, do attend.

Thy tender mercies, Lord, remember pray I Thee;
And loving kindnesses, for they have ever been of old.
My sins and faults of youth, do Thou, O Lord, forget;
After Thy mercy think on me, and for Thy goodness great.

Mine Eyes Upon The Lord Continually Are Set
Psalm 25
Dwight Armstrong

Mine eyes upon the Lord continually are set;
For He it is that shall bring forth my feet out of the net;
Turn unto me Thy face, and to me mercy show;
Because that I am desolate and am brought very low.

My heart's griefs are increased, relieve me from distress;
See mine affliction and my pain, and all my sins forgive;
Consider Thou my foes because they many are;
And it a cruel hatred is which they against me bear.

O do Thou keep my soul, do Thou deliver me;
And let me never be ashamed because I trust in Thee;
Let uprightness and truth keep me, who Thee attend.
Redemption, Lord, to Israel from all his troubles send.

They Are Blest Who Are Forgiven
Psalm 32
Dwight Armstrong

They are blest who are forgiven, To whom God imputes no sin;
Who go to the Eternal, And confess to Him their sins.
Whose iniquities are covered, Whom the Lord does instruct!
Saying, I will direct you In the way that you should go.

Many sorrows have the wicked, Who know not he way of God.
Be not as mules or horses, Which are held by bridles strong;
But be glad in the Eternal, And rejoice all you just;
Shout for joy all you upright; In whose spirit is no guile.

Day and night God's hand was on me, And I groaned till I confessed.
My sins I laid before Him; quickly He forgave them all;
Ev'ry godly one shall pray thus, While the Lord may be found;
So be glad all you upright; All you righteous, shout for joy!

Blessed Is The Nation God Is For
Psalm 33
Dwight Armstrong

Blessed is the nation God is for, And the people He has chosen;
For God looks down from heav'n above And He beholds all nations.
From His place above He looks on all; He sees their ev'ry doing;
He sees their sin, He sees their works, He beholds all of those who fear Him.

O you righteous in the Lord, rejoice; Songs of praise befit the upright;
Play skillfully upon the strings; Sing to Him a joyful new song.
For the Word of God is right and just. All His works are true and faithful;
His loving kindness fills the earth; For He loves righteousness and justice.

By the Word of God the heav'ns were made; Waters of the sea He gathered.
In storage places laid the deeps; let all the earth revere Him.
Let the people stand in awe of Him; For He spoke and earth existed.
When He commanded it stood fast; By His word were the heav'ns created.

Kings will not be saved by armies great Nor a mighty man delivered;
Not one is saved by his own strength, Nor by some other power.
But the eyes of God are on the just; Those who fear and worship Him;
Who wait for Him, who hope for Him, Those who trust in the God of Isr'el.

Turn Thou From Evil
Psalm 34
Dwight Armstrong

Turn thou from evil, do what is good, Seek peace pursue it earnestly.
Upon the just are the eyes of God, His ears are open unto their cry.
But the Eternal's face is against Them that are evil, doers of wrong.
He cuts remembrance off from them, Cuts their remembrance from the earth.

When righteous men cry, God always hears; For He delivereth them from fears. Near unto them of a broken heart, Contrite of spirit God saveth them. Many afflictions that we do have, Troubles there be of righteous men; But the Eternal delivereth out from afflictions the righteous man.
Turn thou from evil, do what is good, Seek peace pursue it earnestly. God keeps the bones of the righteous man, Not one of them shall broken be. Tho' evil slay all unrighteous men, Who hates the pure shall desolate be; But God redeemeth the soul that's His, None shall be desolate trusting Him.

Wait And Hope And Look For God
Psalm 37
Dwight Armstrong

Envy not nor fret yourself over evil lawless men;
They like grass soon fade away and wither like a flow'r.
Trust in the Eternal God, do the right and loyal be;
So will you dwell peacefully and truly shall be fed.

Put your confidence in god, and your way to Him commit;
He shall give you your desires; the petitions of your heart.
Rest in the Eternal God, patiently upon Him wait;
Envy not nor fret yourself because of evil men.

Cease from anger, cease from wrath, for all such shall be cut off;
Wait and hope and look for God; be still and trust in Him.
Soon the wicked shall not be, and his place shall not be found;
So shall you delight yourself in peace abundantly.

Righteous Judge
Psalm 43
Dwight Armstrong

Righteous Judge, from foes defend me,
Who deceitful charges lay;
God, my strength, my soul deliver,
And my treach'rous foes dismay;
O send out Thy light and truth,
Let them lead and guide me still;
Let them bring me to Thy dwelling,
Lead me to Thy holy hill.

Then will I come to Thine altar,
God of my exceeding joy;
And with lyre will I sing praises;
Unto God, my God I'll sing!
Why art thou, my soul, cast down,
Why art thou disquieted?
I shall yet have hope and praise Him;
Unto God shall I give praise!

O God, We Have Heard
Psalm 44
Dwight Armstrong

O God, we have heard and our fathers have taught
The works which of old in their day Thou hast wrought;
The nations were crushed and expelled by thy hand;
Cast out that Thy people might dwell in their land.

They gained not the land by the edge of the sword;
Their own arm to them could no safety afford;
But by Thy right hand, O my Savior and King,
Command, and thy word shall deliverance bring!

No trust will I place in my bow to defend,
Nor yet on my sword for my safety depend;
In God who has saved us and put them to shame,
We boast all the day, ever praising His name!

Awake, O Eternal!
Psalm 44
Dwight Armstrong

Before me I constantly see my disgrace;
And shame and confusion have covered my face;
At sound of the taunters and scoffers delight;
Their hearts full of hate and revengeful despite.

Though all these sore evils have been our sad lot;
Our God and His cov'nant we have not forgot;
Our heart turned not back and our feet have not strayed;
Tho' broken mid jackals with death for our shade.

If we have forgotten the Name of our God;
Or unto some idol our hands spread abroad;
Shall not the Almighty Who sees all within;
And knows the heart's secrets, discover this sin?

Yea, all the day long for Thy sake we're consumed;
Like sheep for the slaughter to death we are doomed;
Awake, O Eternal, and sleep Thou no more;
Arise and our help cast not off ever more.

Come, See The Works Of God
Psalm 46
Dwight Armstrong

O God, our strength and refuge proves
in all distress a present aid;
Thou the trembling earth remove,
we will never be dismayed.
Kingdoms moved, the nations raged,
and the earth melted at His Word;
The Lord of Hosts for us engaged,
our refuge high is Jacob's God.

A river flows, whose living streams
gladdens the city of our God;
Tents where heavenly glory beams,
where the Lord has His abode.
God has Zion His dwelling made;
she shall never more be moved;
Her God shall early give His aid;
He her help has ever proved.

Come, see the works of God displayed,
wonders of His mighty hand;
Desolations He has made,
ruins spread through all the land.
"Be still, know I am God Most High;
o'er the nations I will reign."
The Lord of Hosts to us is nigh;
Jacob's God our help remains.

Mt. Zion Stands Most Beautiful
Psalm 48
Dwight Armstrong

The Lord Eternal is most great and greatly to be praised!
Within the city of our God, upon His holy hill.
Mount Zion stands most beautiful, the Joy of all the Land!
The city of the mighty King doth on her north side stand.

Within her palaces our God is for a refuge known;
For lo, the kings assembled, together they did come.
When they beheld it all amazed, they fled in great dismay;
And being troubled at hy sight, they thence did haste away.

As we have heard, we saw within the city of our God,
The city which the Lord of Hosts established evermore.
We of Thy loving kindness thought, in Thy most holy place;
O God, according to Thy name, Thy praise fills all the earth!

Give Thanks And Offer Praise
Psalm 50
Dwight Armstrong

Hear, O my people, and I'll speak, O Israel by name.
Against you I will testify, for God your God I am.
The fowls are all to me well known, that mountains high do yield;
I also claim as all my own The wild beasts of the field.

Pay all your vows to God most high; Give thanks and offer praise,
And when the day of trouble comes I'll hear and answer you.
Think you that I would eat of flesh or ask for sacrifice?
But rather unto Me your God, give thanks and offer praise.

But to the wicked man God says, Why mention my commands?
Why take my compact on your lips and cast my words behind?
Mark this, you who forget your God, and my instruction hate;
Therefore shall none deliver you, for this is my reproof.

In Thy Loving Kindness, Lord
Psalm 51
Dwight Armstrong

In thy loving kindness Lord, be merciful to me;
In compassion great blot out all iniquity.
Wash me thoroughly from sin, from all guilt cleanse Thou me;
For transgressions I confess; sins I ever see.

'Gainst Thee only have I sinned, done evil in Thy sight,
That Thou speaking may be just, and in judging right.
My iniquities blot out, my sin hide from Thy view,
And in me a clean heart make, spirit right renew.

From Thy gracious presence, Lord, O cast me not away,
And Thy Holy Spirit take not from me I pray.
Joy which Thy salvation brings again to me restore;
With Thy Spirit free do Thou keep me evermore.

Sacrifice dost thou not want, else would I give it Thee,
And with offering shalt Thou not delighted be.
For a broken spirit is to God a sacrifice,
And a broken, contrite heart, Thou wilt not despise.

Save Me, O God, By Thy Great Name
Psalm 54
Dwight Armstrong

Save me, O God, by thy great name, and judge me by thy strength:
My prayer hear, and to my words O God give ear to me.
For they that strangers are to me do up against me rise;
Oppressors do not care for God but seek to take my life.

The mighty God my helper is, lo, therefore I am bold:
He taketh part with ev'ry one that does my soul uphold.
To all my watchful foes he will their evil deeds repay:
O for thy truth's sake cut them off, and take them all away.

A free-will off'ring I to Thee will bring in sacrifice;
Lord, of thy name, for it is good, thy praises will I sing
Because he hath delivered me from all adversities;
And his desire mine eye hath seen upon mine enemies.

But As For Me, I'll Call On God
Psalm 55
Dwight Armstrong

'Twas not a foe who did deride, for that I could endure;
No hater thus who rose in pride, else would I hide secure.
But thou it was, my friend and guide; we did as equals meet;
We walked to God's house side by side, and counsel blended sweet.

His speech more smooth than butter was, yet in his heart was war;
More soft than oil his words appear, yet sharp as drawn swords were they.
But Lord Thou will in judgment sit and bring them down to woe;
And in the deep and darksome pit, in ruin lay them low.

Death shall them seize, and to the tomb, a live they shall go down;
For wickedness is in their home; among them abound their sins.
But as for me, I'll call on God; the Lord will safety give;
He'll hear me when I cry aloud, at morning, noon and night.

Unto My Earnest Prayer Give Ear
Psalm 55
Dwight Armstrong

Unto my earnest prayer give ear, nor hide Thee, O Most High;
Attend my sad complaint, and hear my mourning, bitter cry.
Because of sinful men I weep, and persecuting foes,
Who wickedness upon me heap, and me in wrath oppose.

Sore pained in heart, I find no ease, death's terrors fill my soul;
Great fear and trembling on me seize, and horrors o'er me roll.
Destroyed, Eternal, let them be; divide, confuse their tongue;
For in the city, lo I see great strife and grievous wrong.

All day and night they go around upon her circling walls;
While sin and sorrow great are found within her peopled halls;
Yea, crimes of violence and fraud within the city meet;
Deceit and guile there stalk abroad, nor leave the crowded street.

Lo, wand'ring far, my rest should be in some lone desert waste;
I from the windy storm would flee and from the tempest haste.
"O had I wings," I sigh and say, "like some swift dove to roam;
Then would I hasten far away, and find a peaceful home."

God Is My Rock, My Salvation
Psalm 61
Dwight Armstrong

God is my rock, my salvation, my hope My soul in silence waits for my God alone;
He is my fort, I shall not be removed; He is my refuge, my high tower of strength.
How long will men take pleasure in sin? They plot and threaten the life of the king.

Vain men are they, delighting in craft; Their lips they bless with, but they curse inwardly;
Low men or high, both are less than a breath; Trust and rely not on extortion and gain.
Rescue shall come from my God alone, and I shall never be greatly removed.

Still, O my soul, wait in silence for God; My hope and refuge is in my God alone;
He is my Rock, my salvation and strength; With God alone shall my deliverance be.
Kindness and pow'r belong to our God; He shall reward ev'ry man for his works.

Joyfully Sing And Praise God!
Psalm 66
Dwight Armstrong

Joyfully sing and praise God; all the earth sing forth His praise!
Glory and honor give Him; sing homage to His name!
Say now to God, How dread Your works how awesome are Your deeds!
So great Your pow'r, Your foes submit; all the earth worships you.

O come, and see His great works, among men how dread His deeds!
He turned the sea to dry land, and the multitudes passed through.
So let us all rejoice in Him, who by His power rules;
Whose eyes observe and nations watch; none shall exalt himself.

O bless our God, you peoples; make His praises to be heard!
Give unto Him your grateful thanks who has kept us safe in life,
And not allowed our feet to slip, though You have tested us;
Though we were captured by our foes, yet have You set us free.

So will I come before my God, I will pay my vows to Him;
Vows which my lips have spoken Which I promised when distress'd.
All you who fear Him, come and hear, Come you who worship Him;
I will declare what God has done, What He has done for me!

I called to God and cried out, I extolled Him with high praise;
Had I of sin been thinking, surely God would never hear,
But God indeed has heard my prayer; Blessed be God who hears;
He has not checked my prayer to Him, Nor His own love to me.

For Even From My Youth, O God
Psalm 71
Dwight Armstrong

For even from my youth, O God, by thee I have been taught;
And hitherto I have declared the wonders thou hast wrought.
And now, O God, forsake me not When I am old and gray;
Till I proclaim Thy wondrous deeds To this and every age.

Thy perfect righteousness, O God, The heaven's height exceeds;
O God, who is like Thee, who has performed such mighty deeds
Thou who hast sent me many griefs Wilt yet my soul restore,
And out of sorrow's lowest depths Wilt bring me forth once more.

My greatness and my pow'r Thou will increase and far extend;
Against all grief on ev'ry side to me will comfort send.
And I will also praise Thy truth, O God, with psaltery;
Thou Holy One of Israel, With harp I'll sing to thee.

O God, Forsake Me Not
Psalm 71
Dwight Armstrong

Eternal God, my hope and refuge; Thou art my rock and fortress;
O God incline Thine ear to me; Save me from the unjust man.
Thou art my help and trust, O Lord; My praise shall always be to Thee;
My mouth is filled with praise and glory, O God, forsake me not.

Eternal God, be not far from me! O God, make haste to help me!
I'll hope and praise Thee more and more; I will tell of Thy great works.
Lord, when I'm old forsake me not; My enemies against me plan;
They say, His God will not protect him, O God, forsake me not.

Eternal God, our great creator; Thy justice reaches heaven;
Thou who hast shown me many trials; Thou shalt give me life once more.
My lips will shout for joy, O God; When I sing songs of praise to Thee;
Thou Holy One who hast redeemed me; O God, forsake me not.

His Name Is Great!
Psalm 76
Dwight Armstrong

In Judah God is known and feared; In Israel His Name is great.
His tent in Salem He hath reared; His royal seat in Zion hath made.
There He broke arrows of the bow, The shield, the sword and war's array;
More excellent, O Lord, art Thou, More glorious far than hills of prey.

The stout of heart are spoiled in fight, A deadly sleep the warrior slept;
No hand of all the men of might; Its wonted strength or cunning kept.
O Jacob's God, at Thy command, The chariot and the horse went down;
For Thou art fearful, who can stand, In the tempest of Thy frown?

From heaven God His judgment gave, The trembling earth stood still and feared;
When all the meek on earth to save; For righteous judgment God appeared.
Let all around their presents bring, To Him whom all the world should fear;
He cuts off princes, God the King, Shall fearful to earth's kings appear.

O Thou The Shepherd Of Israel Art
Psalm 80
Dwight Armstrong

O Thou the Shepherd of Israel art;
Hear Thou our prayer and Thy favor impart;
Thou leader of Joseph, Thou guide of his way,
'Mid cherubim dwelling Thy glory display.
In Ephriam's, Manasseh's , and Benjamin's sight,
Come Thou and save us; awake in Thy might.

How long in anger will Thou turn away,
O Lord of Hosts, when Thy people do pray?
With tears and sorrow their table is laid;
Of bitter mixture their drink hast Thou made.
Give us Thy favor, restore us Thy grace;
Then we shall live in the light of Thy face.

Thou made us a scorn to our neighbors around;
Our foes in laughter and scoffing abound.
O Thou, God of Isr'el, return unto Thine;
Look down from heaven and visit this vine;
No more shall we wander, delighting in shame;
Save us, O Lord, for we call on Thy name.

Thou Shepherd That Dost Israel Keep
Psalm 80
Dwight Armstrong

Thou Shepherd that dost Israel keep, Give ear in time of need;
Who leadest like a flock of sheep Thy loved one, Joseph's seed.
That sit'st between the Cherubs bright, Between their wings out-spread;
Shine forth, and from Thy cloud give light, And on our foes Thy dread.

In Ephraim's and in Benjamin's view, And in Manassah's sight,
Awake thy strength, come, and be seen To save us by Thy might.
Turn us again; thy grace divine To us, O God, vouchsafe;
Cause Thou, Thy face on us to shine, For then we shall be safe.

Lord God of Hosts, how long wilt Thou, How long wilt thou declare
Thy smoking wrath, and angry brow, Against thy people's prayer?
Return to us Thy grace divine, O God of Hosts vouchsafe;
Cause Thou, Thy face on us to shine, For then we shall be safe.

Praise The Eternal With A Psalm!
Psalm 81
Dwight Armstrong

Praise the Eternal with a Psalm; sing to the God of Jacob
Raise the chorus, make a joyful noise; bring out the harp and timbrel.
Blow on the trumpet, sound the drum, On our solemn feast day;
This is a statute and a law which God has ordained for Isr'el.

"Hear, O my people, hear my voice; I will admonish Isr'el;
You shall have no other foreign gods; I am the God who freed you.
When you were troubled you did call; I delivered Isr'el."
God answer'd in the secret place; with thunder He did command them.

"I am the God who brought you out, out from the land of Egypt;
Hear, O Isr'el, open wide your mouth; I surely then will fill it."
But Israel would not heed God; they would have their own ways;
O, if they only had obeyed, their God would have surely freed them.

Praise the Eternal with a Psalm; sing to the God of Jacob
Raise the chorus, make a joyful noise; bring out the harp and timbrel.
Blow on the trumpet, sound the drum, On our solemn feast day;
This is a statute and a law which God has ordained for Isr'el.

Rise And Judge, Eternal One!
Psalm 82, 83
Dwight Armstrong

In the midst of magistrates, God His judgment gives.
This He asks, how long will you Thus unjustly judge,
To respect the wicked's cause And the righteous blame?
Judge the poor and fatherless; Judge them righteously.

Earth's foundations have been moved; All in darkness walk.
Judges of the earth know not Nor will understand;
God has said they are like gods, Sons of God Most High;
But they all shall die like men; And as princes fall.

Keep not silence, O my God; Your foes plot their schemes;
That the name of Israel May be blotted out;
Put them all to shame, O God As they would Your sons,
Rise and judge, Eternal One, For the earth is Yours!

Let men know that You, O Lord, The Eternal One,
Are Most High o'er all the earth; Let men know Your Name!
They know not nor understand; They shall die like men;
Rise and judge, Eternal One, For the earth is Yours!

How Lovely Are Thy Dwellings
Psalm 84
Dwight Armstrong

How lovely are Thy dwellings, O Eternal Lord of Hosts!
My soul is longing, fainting, for Thee O living God.
Yea, the bird has found its home, built a nest to lay her young;
O that I may find Thine altars, my Lord, my King, my God!

How lovely are Thy dwellings, O Eternal Lord of Hosts!
For those who dwell in Thy house shall ever sing Thy praise!
Blest and happy is the man, who has found his strength in Thee;
He is stronger day by day, and shall in Zion dwell!

How lovely are Thy dwellings, O Eternal Lord of Hosts!
Give ear unto my prayer, O God of Israel;
For a day with thee is better than a thousand other days;
O that I may find Thine altars, My Lord, my King, my God!

O Lord Of Hosts, My King, My God!
Psalm 84
Dwight Armstrong

O Eternal, Lord of Hosts, How my heart cries out for thee.
How my soul longs for thy courts, And for Thy tabernacles dear.
As the sparrow finds a home, As the swallow finds a nest;
Blest are those who dwell with Thee O Lord of Hosts, my King, my God!

In Thy house, Lord, all are blest; They shall ever sing Thy praise!
Blest an happy is the man Whose strength is in the Lord his God.
They all go from strength to strength, All appear before their God,
God of Jacob, hear my prayer, O Lord of Hosts, my King, my God!

Now behold, O God, our shield; Look on Thine anointed ones;
Hear my prayer, O Lord of Hosts, O God of Jacob, now give ear;
Better one day in Thy house, Than a thousand days without;
Better one day in Thy house, O Lord of Hosts, my King, my God!

How Long, Eternal, Hide Thou Away?
Psalm 89
Dwight Armstrong

How long, Eternal, hide Thou away?
When will Thy wrath not burn like a fire?
Wherefore hast Thou made all men in vain?
Thou, God, remember, fleeting is life.

What man can live and never see death?
Who can escape the pow'r of the grave?
Where is the former love, O my God?
Which unto David, Thou hast pledged.

Recall, Eternal, Thy slave is scorned;
Now I do bear insults of the world;
And with Thy foes mock Thy chosen ones,
Blessed Eternal, Always. Amen.

O Come And Let Us Worship Him
Psalm 95
Dwight Armstrong

O come, let us in songs to God, Our cheerful voices raise;
In joyful shouts let us the Rock Of our salvation praise!
Before His presence let us come With praise and thankful voice;
Let us sing psalms to Him with grace, And make a joyful noise!

For God, a mighty God and King; Above all Gods He is;
The depths of earth are in His hand, The strength of hills is His.
To Him the spacious sea belongs, For He the same did make;
The dry land also from His hands Its from at first did take.

O come, and let us worship Him, Let us bow down withal;
And on our knees, before the Lord, Our Maker, let us fall.
Because He only is our God; And we His people are;
And of His pasture, we are sheep In His Almighty care.

The Lord Eternal Reigns!
Psalm 97
Dwight Armstrong

The Lord Eternal reigns! Let us rejoice!
Let all the multitudes of earth be glad!
Dark clouds surround Him and fire goes before;
Like wax the mountains melt at His return.

His lightnings bare the earth; men see and shake!
His high authority the heavens proclaim!
All those who idols serve shall be ashamed.
Judah rejoices and Zion is Glad!

Our god is far above all other gods!
He is exalted above all the earth!
He will preserve His saints, those who love Him;
Rejoice you righteous and give thanks to God!

Sing Praises And Rejoice!
Psalm 98
Dwight Armstrong

O sing a new song to the Lord, for wonders He hath done:
His right hand and His holy arm Him victory hath won.
The Lord His salvation, hath caused it to be known;
His justice in the nation's sight He openly hath shown.

He mindful of His grace and truth to Isr'el's house hath been;
The great salvation of our God all ends of the earth have seen.
Let all the earth unto the Lord send forth a joyful noise;
Lift up your voice aloud to Him, sing praises, and rejoice.

With harp, with harp, and voice of psalms, O sing unto the Lord!
With trumpets, cornets, gladly sound before the Lord the King.
Let seas and all their fullness roar; the world, and dwellers there;
Let floods clap hands, and let the hills together joy declare

O sing a new song to the Lord, for wonders He hath done:
His right hand and His holy arm Him victory hath won.
Before the Lord; because He comes, to judge the earth comes He:
He'll judge the world with righteousness, His folk with equity.

Holy, Mighty Majesty!
Psalm 99
Dwight Armstrong

The Eternal reigneth high above; He is mighty, He is great!
There between the cherubim He sits; let the people praise His name!
He is King and He maintains the right; He restoreth equity;
Worship and exalt the Eternal One! Holy, Mighty Majesty!

The Eternal One is God and King, and He spoke unto His priests;
In the pillar of the cloud He spoke, unto them who kept His law.
Moses is among them, Aaron too; they extolled the Lord their God.
Samuel also called upon His name; God did hear, and answered them.

O Eternal, You did answer them; You forgave and you avenged;
So, exalt the One Eternal God, Who in Zion is most great!
He is King and He maintains the right; He restoreth equity;
Worship and exalt the Eternal One! Holy, Mighty Majesty!

Sing To The Lord With Cheerful Voice
Psalm 100
Dwight Armstrong

All people that on earth do dwell,
Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice.
Serve Him with joy, His praises tell,
Come ye before Him and rejoice.
And know the Lord is God indeed;
Without our aid he did us make:
We are His flock, He doth us feed,
And for His sheep He doth us take.

O enter then His gates with praise,
Gaily approach unto His courts;
Praise Him and bless His name alway,
For it is seemly so to do.
For God the Lord is ever good,
His mercy is for ever sure;
His truth at all times firmly stood,
And shall from age to age endure.

He Shall Reign Forevermore!
Psalm 102
Dwight Armstrong

Hear my prayer, O Thou Eternal, Hide not Thy face from me;
Hear my cry and quickly answer When my day of trouble comes.
Like grass my heart is withered, My days like grass consumed;
My god, take not my life now, In the midst of my days.

Like an owl in some poor wasteland, I mourn and cannot sleep;
Like a melancholy sparrow, Like a pelican alone.
O Thou, Eternal, hear me, And answer speedily;
Hide not Thy face from me, Lord, For I moan bitterly.

When our God returns from heaven, Then Zion shall be built;
He shall come in all His glory; He shall help the destitute;
Their prayers He will despise not, Their groaning He will hear;
And they shall dwell in safety, For our God shall return.

When all people then are gathered To serve the Lord their God;
To declare His Name in Zion, In Jerusalem His praise!
All kings shall see His glory, All nations hear His Name!
His fame shall be declared then; He shall reign forever more!

Bless The Lord Eternal, O My Soul
Psalm 103
Dwight Armstrong

Bless the Lord Eternal, O my soul, bless His holy sacred name!
And forget not all His benefits to those who fear His name.
He forgives all our iniquities; our diseases He will heal;
From destruction He redeems our life, and He crowns us with His love.

Bless the Lord Eternal, O my soul, let the heavens praise His name!
For His mercy is as high above as the heav'n above the earth.
Not according to our many sins has the Lord so dealt with us;
For as far as east is from the west He removes from us our sins!

Bless the Lord Eternal, O my soul, let the angels praise His name!
For in heaven He has fixed His throne and there He rules the earth.
The Eternal vindicates the cause of all those who have been wronged;
For His mercy is as high above as the heav'ns above the earth!

Bless the Lord Eternal, O my soul, for His love always endures!
And His loyalty is to our sons who keep all His commands.
As for man he blossoms like a flow'r, and his days are like the grass;
But from death the Lord redeems our life and He crowns us with His love.

O Give Thanks And Praise The Eternal!
Psalm 105
Dwight Armstrong

O give thanks and praise the Eternal, Call upon His sacred name;
Let His deeds be known among nations; Sing to Him, sing songs of praise.
Tell of all his marvelous wonders, Glory in His most holy name;
Let the hearts of those rejoice, Who seek god and fear his name;
Worship Him for ever and ever Never forget His wonderful works.

O remember all of His judgments, All His deeds and wonders great;
O remember, children of Isr'el, He made you His chosen ones!
He is our God now and forever! The Eternal, great is His name!
Over all He reigns supreme, All His judgments fill the earth.
God of Abrah'm, Isaac and Jacob, Glory to Him, sing praise to His name!

The Eternal's word is forever; He confirmed His covenant;
For a thousand generations, To His people Israel.
For He gave to them a possession, For an everlasting domain;
As their portion evermore, Canaan's land He gave to them.
God of Abrah'm, Isaac and Jacob, Glory to Him, Sing praise to His name.

O That Men Would Praise Their God!
Psalm 107
Dwight Armstrong

O that men would praise their God for all His goodness and all His works!
For He fills the hungry soul, and they who are thirsty He satisfies.
Some are bound in darkness and chains, for their rebellion against the Most High.

O that men would praise their God for all His goodness and all his love!
He has opened the prisons wide, and saved men from death where they lay enslaved;
In their trouble they cried to Him, and with His word He delivered their lives.

O that men would praise their God for all He does for the sons of men!
O that they would give thanks to Him with shouts of joy and with songs of praise!
Some crossed o'er the stormy seas; they see the wonders of God in the deep.

When Israel Out Of Egypt Went
Psalm 114
Dwight Armstrong

When Isr'el out of Egypt went, and did his dwelling change,
When Jacob's house went out from those that were of language strange,
God Judah made to be his own, and Isr'el His domain.
The sea it saw, and quickly fled, Jordan was driven back.

Like rams the mountains, and like lambs the hills skipped to and fro.
O sea, why turnest thou? Jordan, back why wast thou driven so?
Ye mountains great, wherefore was it that ye did skip like rams?
And wherefore was it, little hills, that ye did leap like lambs?

O at the presence of the Lord, earth, trembled so for fear,
While as the presence of the God of Jacob doth appear:
Who from the hard and stony rock did pools of water bring;
And by his pow'r he turned the flint into a water-spring.

O Give Thanks Unto Our God
Psalm 118
Dwight Armstrong

O give thanks unto our God; blessed be His name
His mercy shall always endure; and His kindness never fails.
Let Israel confess to God, "His mercy always shall endure;
Let Aaron's house-hold now repeat, that His mercy never fails!

I called upon the Lord my God; in distress I cried!
He answered me and set me free; put your confidence in God.
With the Eternal on my side, why should I fear what men can do?
Trust not in princes nor in man; better far to trust in God!

All nations compassed me about, compassed me like bees;
But the Eternal is my strength; in His name I cut them off.
Open the gates of righteousness, where all the righteous enter in;
I shall not die but I shall live, and shall tell of all His works!

O give thanks unto our God; He has answered me!
He my salvation has become, He the chief, the corner-stone.
He by the builders was refused; He was rejected by His own.
God is the Lord who shows us light; Bless-ed be the name of God!

O How Love I Thy Law!
Psalm 119
Dwight Armstrong

O how love I Thy law! It is ever with me.
It is my meditation all the day in my thoughts.
I have held back my feet from the ways of this world;
Thou hast given me wisdom by Thy righteous commands.

O how love I Thy law! It is ever with me;
I have more understanding than the ancients of old.
From Thy precepts I learn ev'ry false way to hate;
I have more understanding for I dwell on Thy law.

O how love I Thy law! It is ever with me;
Thy commands make me wiser than my unfriendly foes.
O how sweet are Thy words, more than honey is sweet!
From Thy Judgments eternal, let me never depart.

For Thy Law Is Truth And Love
Psalm 119
Dwight Armstrong

With my whole heart have I cried to Thee; O Eternal hear my prayer;
For I keep Thy law and meditate On Thy precepts night and day.
I am up before the dawn to pray; For my hope is in Thy word.
Hear my voice according to Thy great love Save me Lord, and quicken me.

My pursuers come with malice near; And Thy law they do not keep;
But Eternal, Thou art near to me And all Thy commands are true;
Thou hast founded them forever, Lord, They are valid for all time.
Look on m affliction, deliver me; For I love Thy law, O God.

I do not forget Thy law, O God; How I love all Thy commands;
But the wicked do not seek Thy law And Thy way is far from them.
Many are my persecutors, Lord, Yet I never turned from Thee.
O consider how I do love Thy law; For Thy law is truth and love.

I Hate The Thoughts Of Vanity
Psalm 119
Dwight Armstrong

I hate the tho'ts of vanity but I do love Thy law.
Thou art my shield and hiding place; I on Thy work rely.
All ye who evil doers are, from me depart away;
Because the precepts of my God I purpose to obey.

Uphold and strengthen me according to Thy faithful word;
That I may live and of Thy hope, may never be ashamed.
O, hold me safe, and ever in Thy will let me delight;
That for the statutes of my God I may have deep respect.

My God will set at naught all those who from His precepts stray;
For their own lies are all in vain, and they themselves deceive.
For all the wicked of the earth are counted but as dross;
And therefore do I love Thy law and testimonies pure.

In Distress I Cried Unto The Lord
Psalm 120, 121
Dwight Armstrong

The Eternal reigneth high above; He is mighty, he is great!
There between the cherubim He sits; Let the people praise His name!
He is King and He maintains the right; He restoreth equity;
Worship and exalt the Eternal One! Holy, Mighty Majesty!

The Eternal One is God and King, and He spoke unto His priests;
In the pillar of the cloud He spoke, unto them who kept His law.
Moses is among them, Aaron too; they extolled the Lord their God.
Samuel also called upon His name; God did hear, and answered them.

O Eternal, You did answer them; You forgave and you avenged;
So, exalt the One Eternal God, Who in Zion is most great!
He is King and He maintains the right; He restoreth equity;
Worship and exalt the Eternal One! Holy, Mighty Majesty!

To The Hills I'll Lift Mine Eyes
Psalm 121
Dwight Armstrong

To the hills I'll lift mine eyes; Ah, from whence shall come my help?
All my help comes from the Lord, Who hath made the heaven and earth.
He will e'er be my guide, And thy foot shall never slide;
God Who keepeth Israel, Never slumbers, never sleeps.

God thy keeper still shall stand, as a shade on thy right hand;
Neither sun by day shall smite, nor the silent moon by night.
God shall guard from all ill, keep thy soul in safety still;
Both without and in thy door, He will keep thee ever more.

Unless The Lord Shall Build The House
Psalm 127
Dwight Armstrong

Unless the Lord shall build the house, The weary builders toil in vain;
Unless the Lord the city shields, The guards maintain a useless watch.
In vain you rise ere morning break, And late your nightly vigils keep,
And bread of anxious care partake; God gives to His beloved sleep.

Lo, children are the gift of God, And sons the blessing He commands;
These whom in youthful days bestowed, Are like the shafts in warrior's hands.
And happy they whose quivers bear Full store of arrows such as these;
They in the gate are free from fear, And boldly face their enemies.

That man is blest who fears the Lord; Who lives and walks in all His ways;
For of his labor shall he eat; And he shall prosper all his days.
His wife shall be a fruitful vine; His children all like olive plants.
Behold the man who fears the Lord! To Him his blessing will afford.

Blest And Happy Is He
Psalm 128
Dwight Armstrong

Blest and happy is he, who obeys and fears God;
He shall earn his daily bread and it shall be well with him.
With his wife in his house, as a vine that bears fruit;
And his sons round his table shall like olive plants be.

Blest and happy is he, Who obeys and fears God;
Out of Zion the Eternal will this blessing send him.
All the days of his life he and his sons shall thrive
They shall see Israel flourish; in Jerusalem peace.

Praise God's Name!
Psalm 135
Dwight Armstrong

Hallelujah! Praise God's Name! Praise His Name, of whom you serve!
You who stand within God's house shall praise His Name within His courts!
Praise the Lord, for He is good; Sing your praises to His Name!
God has chosen for Himself, as His prized possession Israel.

God is great above all gods, What He pleases that He does;
In the heav'n and on the earth; in the seas and depths of oceans wide;
Raises mists o'er all the earth; Sends the lightning and the rain;
And in Egypt He it was struck the first born both of man and beast.

He sent signs and wonders great In the midst of Egypt's land;
Many nations did He strike; Many mighty kings for Israel.
Great Your Name Eternal God; Great Your fame for ever more!
Both endure to ev'ry age and to generations yet to come.

His Mercy Never Fails
Psalm 136
Dwight Armstrong

O give thanks, unto the Lord; Give thanks unto the Lord of Lords;
He performs wonderful works; He stretch'd the earth above the sea!
Give thanks to God for He is good; He who alone doeth great works!
His kindness shall always endure, His mercy never fails!

O give thanks, unto the Lord; For it was He who made great lights;
For the day He made the sun; And for the night the moon and stars!
Give thanks to God for He is good; He who alone doeth great works!
His kindness shall always endure, His mercy never fails!

O give thanks, unto the Lord; He struck at Egypt's stubborn pride;
Their first born He took in wrath; He led His people through the sea!
Give thanks to God for He is good; He who alone doeth great works!
His kindness shall always endure, His mercy never fails!

O give thanks, unto the Lord; For mighty kings of mighty names,
He destroyed and put to shame; Isr'el was saved from all their foes!
Give thanks to God for He is good; He who alone doeth great works!
His kindness shall always endure, His mercy never fails!

By The Waters Of Babylon
Psalm 137
Dwight Armstrong

By the waters of Babylon, there we wept and there sat down;
Hung our harps on the willow trees; Zion yet we remembered thee!
Then our captors required of us; "Sing a song of Zion now!"
Could we sing the Eternal's songs by the waters of Babylon?

Let my right hand forget here skill, if Jerusalem I forget;
If I fail to remember thee, let my tongue cleave unto my mouth!
But we thought of Jerusalem when we sat near Zion's streams;
Far above even our chief joy, We remembered Jerusalem.

In that day of Jerusalem's fall, when the children of Edom said,
"Down with here, down unto the ground, even to the foundations!"
O thou daughter of Babylon, to thy ruin hast'ning on;
Happy he that rewardeth thee, just as thou unto us hast done.

Lord, I Will Praise Thee!
Psalm 138
Dwight Armstrong

Lord, I will praise Thee with my whole heart;
I'll sing Thy praises before all the gods;
Worship and bow t'ward Thy holy place,
Praising Thy name for Thy kind love so true.

More than Thy name Thy Word is enlarged;
And when I cried in that day Thou didst hear;
Thou strengthened me with Thy strength, O Lord;
Kings of the earth will then hear, praising Thee.

Yes, they shall hear, O Lord, of thy ways;
Then shall they sing for Thy glory is great;
Though God is high the poor He respects;
But strikes the proud down from His sov'reign height.

Though in the midst of trouble I walk,
Thou wilt preserve with Thy right hand, my life;
Thou wilt fulfill Thy purpose for me;
Thy steadfast love will endure evermore.

Where Shall I Go From Your Spirt, O God?
Psalm 139
Dwight Armstrong

Lord, You have searched and have compassed my path;
You, O Eternal God, know all my ways.
You are before me and you are behind;
There is no word on my tongue that You miss.
My downfall and my uprising You know;
Your knowledge, Lord, is so far above me.

Where shall I go from Your Spirit, O God?
Where shall I flee from Your presence, O Lord?
If up to heaven, behold You are there;
If down to hell, You would soon find me there;
If I take wings or dwell far out at sea,
Even Your right hand shall hold me, O God.

Though darkness comes and the night covers me.
Even the darkness hides nothing from God.
Yea, even darkness shall shine as the day;
To the Eternal they both are alike.
He knew my life long before I was born;
How vast, O God, is the sum of Your thoughts!

Hear My Cry, Eternal One
Psalm 141
Dwight Armstrong

Hear my cry Eternal One; Let my voice rise unto Thee;
Let my prayer as incense be; As the evening sacrifice.
Set a watch on my mouth; O Eternal, guard my lips;
Let my heart not turn to sin; Nor to practice wicked ways.

O Eternal, hear my cry; Let the righteous smite reprove;
'Tis a kindness to desire; I will pray for their good will.
Let my heart turn from sin; Not to works of wicked men;
I would never taste their feasts; Their own judges are thrown down.

Hear my cry Eternal One; Tell the wicked of your threats;
How their bones shall lie around; Scattered at the mouth of graves.
O my God, turn mine eyes; Let me perish not with them;
Save me from the snare they lay; Let them fall in their own net.

Give Ear To My Prayer, O Lord
Psalm 143
Dwight Armstrong

Give ear to my prayer, O Lord, And my supplications hear;
Answer me in faithfulness; In Thy righteousness.
Into judgment enter not With Thy servant Lord, I pray;
For no living man is just Righteous in Thy sight.

For the enemy, my foe, Persecuted he my soul;
My life hath he smitten down; Down unto the ground;
Made me in the darkness dwell; As those that have long been dead.
My spirit is overwhelmed, My heart desolate.

I remember days of old; Meditate on all Thy ways;
And I muse on all Thy works; All Thy hands have wrought.
After Thee my soul does thirst; As a thirsty land, Selah.
Hear me, Lord, make haste I pray, For my spirit fails.

Lord hear me, I pray of Thee, Hide not Thou Thy face from me;
Lest like unto them I be; Down unto the dust.
Cause Thy servant, Lord, to hear; Show Thy loving kindness, Lord;
For I lift my soul to Thee; I in Thee do trust.

O Lord, Thou Art My God And King!
Psalm 145
Dwight Armstrong

O Lord, Thou art my God and King! I'll Thee exalt, Thy praise proclaim!
I will Thee bless, and gladly sing forever to Thy holy name!
The Lord our God most gracious is; in Him compassions also flow;
In mercy He is rich to bless, but unto anger He is slow.

To all the Lord is very good; O'er all His works His mercy is;
Thy works all praise to Thee afford; Thy saints, O Lord, thy name shell bless.
Thy Kingdom's glory they shall show; they shall Thy power also tell;
So that men's sons His deeds may know, His kingdom's grace that doth excel.

Lord, Teach Me That I May Know
Psalm 143
Dwight Armstrong

Lord, teach me that I may know of the way where I should go;
For to Thee I lift my soul, set me free from all my foes.
Unto Thee I flee to hide me, teach me now Thy will to do;
For Thou Eternal, art my God. Lead me by Thy Spirit good!

Bring my soul from trouble and for Thy name's sake quicken me;
Lead me to the land of refuge, and for Thy mercy's sake
Cut off all my foes, destroy them, they which do afflict my soul;
O Thou Eternal, righteous God; for I am Thy servant, Lord.

Praise Ye The Lord!
Psalm 148
Dwight Armstrong

Praise ye the Lord! Praise ye the Lord!
Praise from the heavens and praise in the heights.
Praise Him, ye angels, praise Him, ye hosts,
And praise Him ye sun, moon and stars in the heights.
Heaven of heavens, waters above;
Praise the Eternal let all praise His Name!
When He commanded they were created,
And by a decree fixed their bounds evermore!

Praise ye the Lord! Ye mammals and deeps too,
Fire, hail and wind storms fulfilling His word!
Vapours and show all hills too, and mountains,
All cedars and fruitful trees, let's praise His Name!
Wild beasts and cattle, birds and all reptiles,
Earth's kings and judges, all people and chiefs;
Young men and maidens, old men and children;
All praise ye the Name of our God evermore!

Praise ye the Lord! Praise ye the Lord!
Praise from the heavens and praise in the heights!
Praise Him ye angels Praise Him ye hosts,
His glory is higher than heaven above;
God lifted high the horn of His people;
He has exalted the praise of His saints;
They are a people near unto God
The children of Israel, praise ye the Lord!

Hallelujah! Praise God!
Psalm 146
Dwight Armstrong

Sing unto the Eternal, Sing your praises to Him:
Put your trust not in mortals for in them is no help
Hallelujah! Praise God! The Eternal shall reign!
He shall reign for all ages; Our King and our God!

Sing unto the Eternal, give your praises to Him;
He it was who made heaven, earth and sea and all things.
Hallelujah! Praise God! The Eternal shall reign!
He shall reign for all ages; Our King and our God!

Sing unto the Eternal, let your hope be in Him;
He remains true for ever He gives justice to all.
Hallelujah! Praise God! The Eternal shall reign!
He shall reign for all ages; Our King and our God!

I Will Sing To The Eternal
Exodus 15
Dwight Armstrong

I will sing to the Eternal; He has triumphed gloriously!
He has stretched out His right hand and hurled the foe into the sea!
O Eternal, You are my strength, my song, my great salvation!
O Eternal, You are my God and I will glorify your Name.

"I will chase them and overtake them, catch them and divide the spoil;"
Said the foe, "My hand will destroy them," but the foe drowned in the sea!
O Eternal, at Your blast the waters gathered, depths congealed!
O Eternal, who can be like You, glorious in holiness?

People heard and nations trembled; dread and terror on them fell;
Chiefs of Edom all were amazed, and they all trembled in their fear!
Pharaoh's horsemen and his chariots sank into the churning sea!
O Eternal, You led Your people over dry land through the sea.

Thee Will I Love, O Lord
II Samuel 22
Dwight Armstrong

Thee will I love, O Lord my might my rock my help my saving pow'r,
My God, my trust, my shield in flight, My great salvation, my high tow'r!
To the Eternal is my prayer, to whom all praise we owe;
So shall I by His watchful care safely be guarded from my foe.

In my distress I called on God, to the Eternal raised my prayer;
My voice He from his temple heard; My cry ascended to His ear.
He bowed the heav'ns His high abode, came in the dark of night;
He on a cherub swiftly rode, and on the wings of wind His flight.

His deadly shafts around He threw; His foes dispersed in wild retreat;
Like burning darts his lightnings flew, scattering them in sore defeat.
He sent from heav'n and rescued me from waters swelling high;
From those that hate me set me free, and foes that stronger were than I.

For who but God should be adored? Who but our God can us befriend?
Who is a rock besides the Lord? Who else is able to defend?
On the Eternal I relied, and over foes prevailed;
With the Almighty on my side, their lofty walls I fearless scaled.

Blow The Horn, Let Zion Hear!
Joel 2
Dwight Armstrong

Blow the horn, let Zion hear, for God's day is now at hand.
Let the people tremble in this day of clouds and gloominess.
Troops so great and mighty strong, there has never been the like;
Nothing shall escape as they devour the stubble on their way.

Fire before them shall devour, flames ablaze are left behind;
Such as Eden was shall become a wilderness that's desolate;
Like the noise of chariots; and as horse-men do they run;
Nothing shall escape as they devour the stubble on their way.

People are faint at their sight, for they run like mighty men,
Moving each on his own way they do not tangle in their paths,
Each does follow his own line, climbing walls like men of war;
Then they charge as warriors and advance like fighters on their way.

They upon the city leap, break thru weapons each unharmed
Run up on the walls and climb in houses thru the windows leap;
Earth is quaking as they come, heaven shake, stars cease to shine;
Then th'Eternal thunders and the sun and moon become both black!

Behold, The Day Will Come
Zechariah 14
Dwight Armstrong

Behold, the day will come, the day of the Lord our God!
He shall bring all nations in that day against Jerusalem,
They shall take the city and share the spoil, in the very midst of them
Then our God Eternal shall go forth, and shall fight against our foes!

In that great day of God, our Lord shall stand on earth!
On the Mount of Olives He shall stand, and the mount shall cleave in two!
There shall be a valley of mammoth size; by the valley you shall flee;
For our God Eternal shall be King, And shall rule over all the earth!

In that great day of God, t'will be neither day nor night;
But at even time it shall be light; it shall be one day go God.
Out from Zion shall living waters flow to the east and to the west;
Then our God Eternal shall be King; in that day shall there be one God!

Behold that day shall come, when all nations shall obey!
Those of all the nations that are left, to Jerusalem shall go;
They shall even go there from year to year, and shall keep the Feast of Booths;
There shall be one God, the Eternal, Who is King over all the earth!

Go You Therefore Into All The World
Matthew 28
Mark 16
Dwight Armstrong

Go ye therefore into all the world;
Preach the gospel unto ev'ry one;
Teach all nations to observe all things
I have commanded you.
Baptize them into the Father's name,
In the Holy Spirit's and the Son's;
Lo, I shall be with you to the end; lo,
I am with you alway.

Those who have believed and are baptized
Shall be saved while others are condemn'd;
Then as for those who now do believe,
These signs shall surely follow;
They shall cast out demons in My name;
They shall not be hurt by deadly things;
And they shall lay hands upon the sick,
And the sick shall be made well.

Christ was taken up into the heav'ns After
He had spoken all these words;
There His Father did receive Him and
Place Him at His right hand.
His disciples went out as He said,
And they preached the gospel ev'rywhere;
Christ worked with them and confirmed the word
By those signs which followed them.

Not Many Wise Men Now Are Called
I Corinthians 1
Dwight Armstrong

Not many wise men now are called, not many noble brethren,
Not many mighty chosen ones, for you see your calling:
Sons of God, you are called, not because of greatness;
Even the wisdom of mankind is to God but foolish.

God chose the foolish of the world; He chose the weak and base things;
He chose the things which are despised, that no flesh should glory.
Sons of God, you are called, not because of greatness;
You who are called and now in Christ shall confound the mighty.

Even the foolishness of God, wiser by far than man is;
Even the weakness of our God, stronger far than man is.
Sons of God, you are called, not because of greatness;
Let them who glory boast in Christ, not in their own greatness.

If I Have Not Charity
I Corinthians 13
Dwight Armstrong

Tho' I speak with tongues of men, Tho' I speak as angels,
If I have not charity I am become as nothing
I become as sounding brass, Or a tinkling cymbal;
With the gift of prophecy, Still I am as nothing.

Tho' I know all mysteries, Tho' I have all knowledge,
If I have not charity, I am become as nothing.
Tho' I give all I possess, Let my body burn;
If I have not charity, Then I am as nothing.

Charity will suffer long, Charity is kind,
Envies not nor vaunts itself, Behaveth not unseemly.
Seeketh not to have here way, Nor is eas'ly angered;
If I have not charity, Then I am as nothing.

Charity rejoiceth not in iniquity,
But rejoiceth in the truth; Believes and bears all things;
Hopes all things, endures all things; Never thinketh evil.
If I have not charity, Then I am as nothing.

Whether there be prophecies, Whether there be knowledge,
These shall likewise pass away, But charity remaineth.
Faith and hope and charity; All of these abide;
But among the three of these, Charity is greatest.
