1 Sing loud to God our strength; with joy
to Jacob’s God do sing.
2 Take up a psalm, the pleasant harp,
timbrel and psalt’ry bring.

3 Blow trumpets at new-moon, what day
our feast appointed is:
4 For charge to Isr’el, and a law
of Jacob’s God was this.

5 To Joseph this a testimony
he made, when Egypt land
He travell’d through, where speech I heard
I did not understand.

6 His shoulder I from burdens took,
his hands from pots did free.
7 Thou didst in trouble on me call,
and I deliver’d thee:

In secret place of thundering
I did thee answer make;
And at the streams of Meribah
of thee a proof did take.

8 O thou, my people, give an ear,
I’ll testify to thee;
To thee, O Isr’el, if thou wilt
but hearken unto me.

9 In midst of thee there shall not be
any strange god at all;
Nor unto any god unknown
thou bowing down shalt fall.

10 I am the Lord thy God, which did
from Egypt land thee guide;
I’ll fill thy mouth abundantly,
do thou it open wide.

11 But yet my people to my voice
would not attentive be;
And ev’n my chosen Israel
he would have none of me.

12 So to the lust of their own hearts
I them delivered;
And then in counsels of their own
they vainly wandered.

13 O that my people had me heard,
Isr’el my ways had chose!
14 I had their en’mies soon subdu’d,
my hand turn’d on their foes.

15 The haters of the Lord to him
submission should have feign’d;
But as for them, their time should have
for evermore remain’d.

16 He should have also fed them with
the finest of the wheat;
Of honey from the rock thy fill
I should have made thee eat.
