Psalm 75 (Our Thanks We Offer)

Words: David P. Regier
Tune: Praise to The Lord
“Lobe Den Herren”
[Key: D]

Verse 1
Our thanks we offer, O God
For Your name is upon us.
Telling Your wonderful works
How Your mercies dwell on us.
“At My set time,
I in My nature sublime,
Judge all the earth by My promise.”

Verse 2
“Earth and all those
Who dwell in it shall shake now before Me
I Have established its pillars
And steady its mooring.
Who then shall boast
Against the heavenly hosts?
Quiet your pride now before Me!”

Verse 3
Unto the ends of the earth,
Man has sought acclamation,
God is the Judge who must humble
Or bring exaltation.
Yahweh the Lord,
Onto the wicked has poured
His cup of wrath as libation.

Verse 4
But as for me, I will
Tell of His wonders forever,
Praising the Lord God
With singing shall be my endeavor.
He shall cast down
From ev’ry rival his crown,
And raise the righteous forever.
