I Will Praise You


A responsive Psalm based on Psalm 138.


I will praise you, O LORD, with all of my heart;
before the powers and idols of this world I will sing your praise.
I will bow down before your throne and your throne alone;
I will praise your name for your love and your faithfulness.
Above all things I shall glorify your Name;
Above all things I shall honour your Word.
When I called, you answered me;
You gave me courage when my heart felt weak.
May all the rulers of the earth praise you, O LORD,
May they listen to the words of your mouth.
May they walk in your ways, O LORD,
Praising the greatness of the glory of God.
Though the LORD is highly exalted, he looks lovingly upon the lowly,
He perceives the attitudes of the proud from afar.
Though I walk through the midst of trouble, you preserve my life;
you stretch out your right hand to save me from the anger of the enemy.
O LORD fulfil your purpose in me;
Your love, O LORD, lasts for ever.

from Psalm 138
