A Commentary On The Psalms From Primitive and Mediæval Writers Volumes 1 To 4 by Rev. J.M. Neale D.D.

Open, O LORD,* the mouths of Thy humble servants to show forth Thy praise, that leaving the works of Egypt behind, we may rejoice in the confession of Thy Name. (1.)

Unto Thee, O LORD, our Strength,* we pray with the cheerful noise of faith and hope, that our petition, poured forth in trouble, may draw nigh unto Thine ears: that Thou mayest in Thy goodness be present with the prayers of each one of us to deliver us; and when Thou hast rescued us, grant us a burning desire to attain unto Thee, and with harmonious devotion to sing aloud to the Unity of the threefold Majesty, so that, alway busied in Thy praise, and following the paths of Thy commandments, we may obtain in Thee the adornments of exultation, the comforts of life, and the crown of faith. (11.)

Let us sing merrily unto Thee, O LORD,* Whom we acknowledge and confess to be our Strength; for which cause we take a cheerful noise unto Thee in our longings, a psalm in our teaching, we give back a drum in our mortification; for in praising Thee we keep festival and take delight in making mention of Thy wondrous works. Grant, therefore, O LORD, that we who tell of Thy bounties may also win Thy rewards. (11.)

O LORD, (D. C.) cause Thy people to hear Thy voice, open our mouth, and fill it with the praise of Thy grace, that in the trouble of this present life Thou mayest hearken when we call upon Thee, and Thou mayest deliver us from every assault of our enemies and from the storm which endeth not. (1.)
