PSALM 92:1-4, 12-15
METER:  LMD (88 88 D)
This is the meter of the hymn "Come, O Thou Traveler Unknown."

1.  How good it is to thank you, Lord,
    To sing praise to your name, Most High,
    To tell each morn-ing of your love
    And each night of your faith-ful-ness
    With mu-sic from the lute and harp,
    With mel-o-dy up-on the lyre.
    Your might-y deeds, Lord, make me glad;
    Be-cause of them, I sing for joy.
2.  The right-eous flour-ish like palm trees,
    Like Leb-anon's ce-dars do they grow;
    They're plant-ed in the Lord's own house,
    And flour-ish in God's Tem-ple courts.
    They still bear fruit when they are old;
    They are still green and full of sap,
    To show that God is just in-deed,
    That my pro-tect-or does no wrong.
