1 Amid the thronging worshipers
Jehovah will I bless;
Before my brethren, gathered here
His Name will I confess.
Come, praise Him, ye that fear the Lord,
Ye children of His grace;
With reverence sound His glories forth
And bow before His face.
2 The burden of the sorrowful
The Lord will not despise;
He has not turned from those that mourn,
He hearkens to their cries.
His goodness makes me join the throng
Where saints His praise proclaim,
And there will I fulfill my vows
'Mid those who fear His Name.
3 He feeds with good the humble soul
And satisfies the meek,
And they shall live and praise the Lord
Who for His mercy seek.
The ends of all the earth take thought,
The nations seek the Lord;
They worship Him, the King of kings,
In earth and heaven adored.
The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
st.1 = Ps. 22:22-23
st.2 = Ps. 22:24-25
st.3 = Ps. 22:26-28
“Amid the Thronging Worshipers” is a versification from the concluding part of Psalm 22, that great psalm of lament most quoted in the New Testament. The conclusion of Psalm 22 features vows of strong praise made in the sure faith that God will deliver the believer and answer prayer. Like many psalms, this text is cosmic in scope, moving from the singular “I” (st.1) to “his people” and saints” (st.1-2) to “all the earth” (st.3) The versification is from the 1912 Psalter. See PHH22 for further commentary on Psalm 22.
Beginning of worship; praise occasions.
