Page 636 PSALM 29


1          Ascribe to the Lord you sons of heaven :

                        ascribe to the Lord glory and might.

2          Ascribe to the Lord the honour due to his name :

                        O worship the Lord in the beauty of his holiness.

3          The voice of the Lord is upon the waters :

                        the God of glory thunders, the Lord upon the great waters.

4          The voice of the Lord is mighty in operation :

                        the voice of the Lord is a glorious voice.

5          The voice of the Lord breaks the cedar-trees :

                        the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.

6          He makes them skip like a calf :

                        Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox.

7          The voice of the Lord divides the lightning-flash :

                        the voice of the Lord whirls the sands of the desert,

                                    the Lord whirls the desert of Kadesh.

8          The voice of the Lord rends the terebinth trees,

                                    and strips bare the forests :

                        in his temple all cry ‘Glory.

9          The Lord sits enthroned above the water-flood :

                        the Lord sits enthroned as a king for ever.

10        The Lord will give strength to his people :

                        the Lord will give to his people the blessing of peace.

Glory to the Father...
