Ascribe unto the Lord

Samuel Sebastian Wesley

Ascribe unto the Lord, O ye kindreds of the people : ascribe unto the Lord worship and power.
Ascribe unto the Lord the honour due unto his Name.
Let the whole earth stand in awe of him.
Tell it out among the heathen that the Lord is King : and that he shall judge the people righteously.
Let the whole earth stand in awe of him.

O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.
Sing to the Lord, and praise his Name : be telling of his salvation from day to day, and his wonders unto all people.

As for the gods of the heathen, they are but idols.
Their idols are silver and gold : even the work of men's hands.
They have mouths, and speak not : eyes have they, and see not.
They have ears, and hear not : noses have they, and smell not.
They have hands, and handle not; feet have they, and walk not : neither speak they through their throat.
They that make them are like unto them : and so are all such as put their trust in them.

As for our God, he is in heaven : he hath done whatsoever pleased him.

The Lord hath been mindful of us, and he shall bless us : he shall bless the house of Israel, he shall bless the house of Aaron.
He shall bless them that fear the Lord : both small and great.
Ye are the blessed of the Lord : you and your children.
Ye are the blessed of the Lord : who made heaven and earth.

Ps.96 & Ps.115
