PSALM 92:1-4, 12-15
METER: LMD (88 88 D)
SUGGESTED TUNE: CANDLER
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.
