Lyrics

Sing aloud to the God of strength;
Shout for joy to the God of Jacob.
Raise a song, sound the tambourine,
The sweet lyre with the harp.

Blow the trumpet at the new moon,
At the full moon, on festal day.

For it's a statute for Israel,
An ordinance of the God of Jacob.
He made it a decree in Joseph,
When he went over the land of Egypt.

I hear a voice I had not known:
”˜I relieved you of your burden;

”˜Your hands were freed from hard labour.
”˜In distress you called, and I rescued you;
”˜I answered you in the secret place of thunder;
”˜I tested you at the waters of Meribah.”

Selah (rest and think about that)

”˜Hear, my people, while I admonish;
”˜O Israel, if, if you would but listen!
”˜There shall be no strange god among you;
”˜You shall not bow down to, to foreign gods.

”˜I'm the Lord God, who brought you up out
”˜of the land of, the land of Egypt.

”˜Open your mouth wide, I'll fill it.
”˜But my people don't listen to my voice;
”˜Israel, Israel would not submit to me.
”˜So I let them follow their own stubborn hearts.”

”˜O that my people would listen to me,
”˜That Israel would walk, walk in my ways!
”˜Then I'd quickly subdue their enemies,
”˜And turn my hand a- against their foes.

”˜Those who hate the Lord would cringe before him,
”˜And their doom would, would last forever.

”˜I would feed you with fine wheat,
”˜Yes, with finest wheat and with honey from
”˜and with honey from the rock.
”˜I would satisfy you.”
