“Prayer on Psalm 149” — The Scottish Psalter

“Instruct our mouths, O good LORD,

With a new song, that, our hearts being renewed,
We may sing in the company of Thy saints,
And rejoice in Thee our Creator and Redeemer.

Let us possess such peace of conscience as may strongly work for Thee.
And, being girded with the two-edged sword of Thy Word and Holy Spirit,
May we strive against all things that oppose themselves to the glory of Thy most holy name,
And that through Jesus Christ, Thy dear Son,
Our only Lord and Redeemer.

Amen.”

–“Psalm 149” in Prayers on the Psalms From the Scottish Psalter of 1595 (Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth, 2010), 148.
