The Lord our God is merciful, and he is gracious,
Long-suffering, and slow to wrath, in mercy plenteous.
He will not chide continually, nor keep his anger still.
With us he dealt not as we sinn’d, nor did requite our ill.
O bless the Lord, all ye his works,
wherewith the world is stor’d
In his dominions ev’ry where.
My soul, bless thou the Lord.
–Scottish Psalter, 1650
