PSALM 113, by            
First Line: Ye children of the lord, that wait
Last Line: Under her roof with children blest.


YE children of the Lord, that wait
Upon His will, sing hymns divine,
From henceforth to time's endless date,
To His name, prais'd from the first shine
Of the earth's sun, till it decline.

The hosts of heaven or earth have none
May to His height of glory rise;
For who like Him hath fix'd His throne
So high, yet bends down to the skies,
And lower earth, His humble eyes?

The poor from loathed dust He draws,
And makes them regal state invest
'Mongst kings, that gives His people laws:
He makes the barren mother rest
Under her roof with children blest.
