“Prayer on Psalm 115” — The Scottish Psalter

“O LORD of all consolation and comfort,

Look down upon Thy church oppressed by her enemies
And deliver her for the glory of Thy holy name,
That the ungodly may be kept from blaspheming Thee.

Destroy this filthy idolatry which overruns the whole world.
Suffer not, good God, that we be exposed to the angry will of our enemies;
That we, in despite of them, being maintained by Thee,
May bless and glorify Thee,
Both now and evermore.


–“Psalm 145” in Prayers on the Psalms From the Scottish Psalter of 1595 (Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth, 2010), 122-123.
