Woe Unto Me

(Ps 120)
© Jamie Soles

Sample

In my distress I called to the Lord and He answered me
Deliver me, Lord, from lips of the lying and tongues of deceit
What shall be given to you
And what more shall be done to your lying tongue
A warrior's sharp arrows, glowering coals from the broom tree
Would satisfy me

Woe unto me that I stay here in Meshech
I dwell 'mid the tents of Kedar
Too long have I lived here
Those who hate peace are near
I am for peace, but all these are for war

Woe unto me that I stay here in Meshech....

In my distress I called to the Lord and He answered me....

Eyes to the Hills

(Ps 121)
© Jamie Soles

Sample

I lift up my eyes to the hills
From where does my help come?
My help comes from the Lord
Who made heaven and earth

He will not let your foot be moved
He who keeps you will not slumber
Lo, He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep
The Lord, He is your keeper
He is your shade on your right hand
And the sun shall not smite you by day nor the moon by night
The Lord will keep you from all evil
He will keep your life
The Lord will keep your going out
The Lord will keep your coming in
From this time forth forever

Evermore

I lift up my eyes to the hills....

Jerusalem

(Ps 122)
© Jamie Soles

Sample

I was glad when they said to me
Let us go to the house of the Lord
Our feet have been standing within your gates oh Jerusalem
I was glad when they said to me
Let us go to the house of the Lord
Our feet have been standing within your gates oh Jerusalem

Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Jerusalem

Built as a city bound firmly together
Where the tribes go up
The tribes of the Lord
As it was decreed for Israel
To give thanks to the name of the Lord
There the thrones for judgment were set
The thrones of the house of David (in Jerusalem)

Jerusalem....

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem
May all those who love you be blessed
Peace within your walls, security abounding
For the sake of your brothers and friends
We declare, "Peace to you!"
Because of the house of our God
We will seek your good

Jerusalem....

Have Mercy

(Ps 123)
© Jamie Soles

Sample

Unto You I lift up my eyes
O You who are enthroned in the heavens on high
Look down and behold

As the eyes of a servant
Look unto the master's hand
As the eyes of a maidservant
To the hand of her mistress
So our eyes look to the Lord our God
Till He has mercy upon us

Mercy upon us O Lord
For we've had more than enough of contempt
Have mercy upon us (have mercy upon us)
Mercy upon us O Lord
For our soul has had more than enough
Of the scorn of those at east
Of the contempt of the proud
Have mercy, oh have mercy

Escaped

(Ps 124)
© Jamie Soles

Sample

If it had not been the Lord who was on our side
Let Israel now say
If it had not been the Lord who was on our side
When people rose up against us
They would have swallowed us up alive
When their anger was kindled against us
The flood would have swept us all away
The torrent would have gone over us
Raging waters over us

Blessed be the Lord
Who has not given us as a prey to their teeth
We have escaped like a bird from the snare of the fowler
The snare is broken and we have escaped
Blessed be the Lord
Who has not given us as a prey to their teeth
We have escaped like a bird from the snare of the fowler
The snare is broken and we have escaped
We have escaped

Our help is in the Name of the Lord
Who made heaven and earth....

Blessed be the Lord
Who has not given us as a prey to their teeth....

Those Who Trust

(Ps 125)
© Jamie Soles

Sample

Those who trust in the Lord
Are like Mount Zion which cannot be moved
But abides forever
As the mountains surround Jerusalem
So the Lord surrounds His people
From this time forth forever more

For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest
On the land allotted to the righteous one
Lest the righteous stretch out their hand to do wrong

Do good, O Lord, to those who are good
And to those who are upright in their hearts
But those who turn aside to their wicked ways
The Lord will lead away with evildoers
Evildoers

Peace be upon Israel....

Shouts of Joy

(Ps 126)
© Jamie Soles

Sample

Shouts of joy....

When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion
We were like those who dream
Then our mouth was filled with laughter
And our tongue with shouts of joy
Then they said among the nations
"The Lord has done great things for them!"
Yes, the Lord has done great things for us
And we are glad, we are glad

Restore our fortunes, Lord
Like the streams in the southland
Restore our fortunes, Lord
Like the streams in the southland

Those who sow in tears
Shall reap with shouts of joy
He who goes out weeping
Bearing seed for sowing
Shall come home with shouts of joy
Bringing his sheaves with him

Shouts of joy

Those who sow in tears....

His Beloved Sleep

(Ps 127)
© Jamie Soles

Sample

Unless the Lord build the house
Those who build it labour in vain
Unless the Lord watches over the city
The watchman stays awake in vain
It is in vain that you rise up early
Vain... and go late to rest
Vain... eating the bread of anxious toil
For He gives to his beloved sleep

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord
The fruit of the womb a reward
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
Are the children of one's youth
Blessed is the man
Who fill his quiver with them
He shall not be put to shame
He shall not be put to shame
When he speaks with his enemies in the gate

Blessed is the man....

Unless the Lord build the house....

Who Fears the Lord

(Ps 128)
© Jamie Soles

Sample

Blessed are all you who fear the Lord
Who walk in His ways
You shall eat the fruit of your labouring hands
And be prospered all your days
Within you house your wife will be
Like a fruitful vine
Your children will be like olive shoots
Around your table lined
Behold, thus shall the man be blessed
Who fears the Lord

The Lord bless you from Zion!
The Lord bless you from Zion!
The Lord bless you from Zion!
The Lord bless you from Zion!

May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem
All the day of your life
May you see your children's children

Peace be upon Israel!
Peace be upon Israel!
Peace be upon Israel!
Peace be upon Israel!

Backward

(Ps 129)
© Jamie Soles

Sample

"Greatly have they afflicted me from my youth" let Israel now say
"Greatly have they afflicted me from my youth"
Yet they have not prevailed against me
The ploughers ploughed upon my back
They made long their furrows
But the Lord is righteous
He has cut their cords and they have not prevailed
They have not prevailed

May all who hate Zion be put to shame
And turned backward
May all who hate Zion be put to shame
And turned backward

Let them be like the grass on the housetops
Which withers before it grows up
With which the reaper does not fill his hand
Nor the binder of sheaves his arms

Let them be like the grass on the housetops
Which withers before it grows up
With which the reaper does not fill his hand
Nor the binder of sheaves his arms
Nor do those who pass by say
"The blessing of the Lord be upon you!"
"We bless you,
We bless you in the name of the Lord!"—no....

May all who hate Zion be put to shame....

Forgiveness

(Ps 130)
© Jamie Soles

Sample

Out of the depths
I cry to You, O Lord
O Lord, hear my voice
Pay attention to my pleas for mercy

If You, O Lord, should mark our sins
Lord, who could stand
But with You there is forgiveness
With You there is forgiveness
With You there is forgiveness
That You may be feared

I wait for the Lord, my soul waits
And His Word I hope
My soul waits for the Lord
More than watchmen for the morning
More than watchmen for the morning

If You, O Lord shoul mark our sins....

O Israel, hope in the Lord
For with the Lord is steadfast love and plentiful redemption
And He will redeem Israel from all of his iniquities

If You, O Lord, should mark our sins....

Weaned Child

(Ps 131)
© Jamie Soles

Sample

O Lord
My heart is not lifted up
My eyes are not raised too high
I do not occupy myself
With things too great, too marvellous for me
But I have calmed and quieted my soul
Like a weaned child with his mother
Like a weaned child is my soul within me

Oh Israel
Hope in the Lord, hope in the Lord
Now and forevermore
Hope in the Lord, hope in the Lord

In David’s Favour

(Ps 132)
© Jamie Soles

Sample

Remember, O Lord, in David's favour
All the hardships he endured
How he swore to the Lord
And vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob
"I will not enter my house or get into my bed
I will not give sleep to my eyes or slumber to my eyelids
Until I find a place for the Lord
A dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob."

Behold, we heard of it in Ephrathah
We found it in the fields of Jaar
"Let us go to His dwelling place
Let us worship at His footstool"

Arise, O Lord, and go to Your resting place
You and the ark of Your might
Let Your priests be clothed with righteousness
And let Your saints shout for joy
For the sake of Your servant David
Do not turn away the face of Your anointed one

The Lord swore to David a sure oath
From which He will not turn back
"One of the sons of your body I will set on your throne
If your sons keep My covenant and My testimonies
That I shall teach them
Their sons also forever shall sit on your throne"

For the Lord has chosen Zion
He has desired it for His dwelling place
"This is My resting place forever
Here I will dwell, for I have desired it
I will abundantly bless her provisions
I will satisfy her poor with bread
Her priests I will clothe with salvation
And her saints will shout for joy
There I will make a horn to sprout for David
I have prepared a lamp for My anointed
His enemies I will clothe with shame
But on him his crown will shine"

Glory be to the Father and to the Son
And to the Holy Ghost
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be
World without end, amen

Running Down

(Ps 133)
© Jamie Soles

Sample

Behold, how good and pleasant it is
When brothers dwell in unity
Behold, how good and pleasant it is
When brothers dwell in unity

It is like the precious oil on the head
Running down on the beard
On the beard of Aaron
Running down
On the collar of his robes
It is like the dew of Hermon
Which falls on the mountains of Zion

For there the Lord has commanded the blessing
Life forevermore, life forevermore
There the Lord has commanded the blessing
Life forevermore, life forevermore

Bless the Lord

(Ps 134)
© Jamie Soles

Sample

Come, bless the Lord
All you servants of the Lord
Who stand by night in the house of the Lord
Bless the Lord
Lift your hands
Lift up your hands to the holy place, the holy place
And bless the Lord, bless the Lord, bless the Lord

May the Lord who made heaven and earth
Bless you, bless you, bless you, bless you
May the Lord who made heaven and earth
Bless you from Zion

May the Lord who made heaven and earth....

Psalm 134


(Anglo-Genevan version)

Sample

Come bless the Lord with one accord
You faithful servants of the Lord
Who in His house do stand by night
And praise Him there with all your might

Lift up your hands, in prayer draw nigh
Unto His sanctuary high
O bless the Lord, kneel at His feet
And worship Him with reverence meet

The Lord now bless you from above
From Zion in His boundless love
Our God, who heaven and earth did frame
Blest be His great and holy Name. Amen.
