“Prayer on Psalm 78” — The Scottish Psalter

“O Good God,

Who through the multitude of Thy benefits, heaped upon us,
Ceasest not to incite us to honour and serve Thee,
Nevertheless our wicked nature and unfaithfulness is such that we give not that obedience which is Thy due unto Thee.

Yet we beseech Thee that Thou wilt not put forth Thy anger upon us,
But put away all our iniquities out of Thy sight through Thy mercy,
And have pity upon us, the poor sheep of Thy pasture
Who are redeemed by the blood of Thy Son, Christ Jesus.

Amen.”

–“Psalm 78″ in Prayers on the Psalms From the Scottish Psalter of 1595 (Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth, 2010), 94-95.
