    PSALM 138
    Here are two metrical paraphrases of Psalm 138 by David Schütz. If reproducing either of these versions, please put ‘Words (c) David Schütz’ at the beginning or the end of the psalm. The following may be sung to the tune of ‘The Greatest Commandment’ (ATA 175).

    I give you thanks, Lord, with all my heart;
    before the angels I will sing your praise.
    I worship you in your holy place
    and always thank and praise your holy name.
    For you are loving, and faithful too;
    your name and your word have been glorified.
    And when I called on your holy name,
    you gave me your answer and made me strong.

    All kings and rulers shall praise you, Lord,
    when they have heard your words of truth and love;
    and they shall sing of the ways of God:
    ‘Tremendous is the glory of the Lord’.
    Yet, though exalted, he keeps his watch
    with love and compassion upon the poor.
    The rich and proud, he will still observe,
    but like one that watches from far away.

    And you preserve me throughout my life,
    though trouble meets me everywhere I go.
    You stretch your mighty right hand to save,
    and fight the anger of my enemies.
    The Lord fulfils his promise to me;
    forever and ever your love endures.
    Do not forsake what your hands have made,
    remember you made me and I am yours.

    This second version could be sung to the traditional tune Dir, dir, Jehovah (LH 218):

    With all my heart, I give you thanks, Lord.
    Before the angels I will sing your praise.
    I worship in your holy temple
    and always thank and praise your holy name.
    For you have shown your love and faithfulness,
    Your holy name and word are glorified.

    And on the day I called upon you,
    you gave me answer and you made me strong.
    The kings of all the earth shall praise you,
    when they have heard your words of truth and love.
    They all shall sing about your ways, O Lord:
    ‘Tremendous is the glory of the Lord’.

    Yet, though the Lord is high in heaven,
    he still regards the lowly of the earth.
    He does not overlook the haughty,
    but watches them like one who’s far away.
    Though trouble meets me everywhere I go,
    your right hand saves me from my enemies.

    The Lord will keep his promise to me;
    your steadfast love, O Lord, will always last.
    Stretch out your hand and come to save me!
    Do not forsake the work your hands have made.
    With all my heart, I give you thanks, O Lord.
    Before the angels I will sing your praise.

    PSALM 130
    The following is a metrical paraphrase by David Schütz , which may be sung to the tune of Kingsfold (‘I heard the voice of Jesus say’, LH 306, TIS 585, AT 137). If reproducing this version, please put ‘Words (c) David Schütz’ at the beginning or the end of the psalm.

    Out of the depths, I cry to you,
    Lord, hear my tearful prayer!
    If you should mark iniquity,
    O Lord God, who could stand?
    But you forgive the sorry soul,
    so all may fear your name.
    I wait for you, for you I long,
    and in your word I hope.

    I wait for him far more than those
    who wait for dawn to come.
    O Isra-el, hope in the Lord!
    With him is steadfast love.
    He has great power to redeem,
    and he alone can save
    his people from their deadly sin
    and raise them from the grave.
