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

O LORD Almighty,* Who, girt with the FATHER’S power, hast set heaven, sea, and earth in their places; hearken unto Thy humble servants, grant us belief in Thy testimonies, and clothe us with strength and beautiful holiness. (1.)

Cause us,* O LORD, to become heirs of Thy testimonies, which have been made matter of belief unto us, let them be constantly in our thought, that they may be sincerely held in true faith, and be so fulfilled in our work, that as they are uttered by the mouth they may guide us in sorrow with their comfort and make us more ready to labour with Thee. (11.)

Thy testimonies are wonderful,* O LORD GOD, wherewith Thine Only-begotten SON is King over all the earth; grant us, therefore, that we who behold His glory with unveiled face, may be set at His right hand in the judgment. (11.)

O GOD, Who art clothed with strength,* and girt with power, make us ready to stand before the seat of Thy majesty, that thenceforth and from everlasting we may magnify Thy Name, and vouchsafe to be gracious to us upon earth, Thou Who art wonderful in the highest. (11.)

O LORD, Whose kingdom is terrible in might,* and girded about with power, Whom the floods of the Doctors praise with lifted voices, and the wonders of the sea celebrate; stir up Thy power, and the terrible strength of Thine arm, to break the yoke of our slavery, which presses sorely upon our necks. Let it confirm our weary hands, strengthen our feeble knees, make the faint-hearted become valiant, that we fear nothing henceforth from the enemy, because we believe Thee, our most loving Redeemer, to have come for our salvation. (11.)

O LORD, Ruler of heaven and earth, (D. C.) clothe us with the beauty of good works, and the strength of Thy grace, and gird us with the testimony of truth; grant that we may go forth to meet Thee, clad in these clean wedding garments, and enter in with ready lamps unto the eternal marriage banquet with Thee. Who livest.
