¶ A double forward slash // marks the mid-point in each psalm verse where, traditionally, a pause is observed.

¶ A single forward slash / marks a bar-line of the chant. An asterisk * indicates the mid point of the bar, and the chord changes after the dot. Chord changes in words of more than one syllable are indicated by a dash.

¶ For those traditions which omit the word ‘Alleluia' during penitential seasons, we have provided an alternative: ‘Praise the Lord'.

¶ A verse number followed by a greater-than sign > indicates that the second-half of a double chant should be sung.

¶ Each psalm or group of psalms may end with

Glory to the Father and / to the / Son //
and / to the / Holy / Spirit;

as it was in the be/ginning is / now //
and shall be for / ever. / A/men.

Psalm 16

RSCM CW Psalter--No.18. | katapi Media Player (midi)

E Monk

1 Preserve me, O God, for in you have I / taken / refuge; //
I have said to the Lord, 'You are my lord, all my / good de/pends on / you.'

2 All my delight is upon the godly that are / in the / land, //
upon / those * who are / noble in / heart.

3 > Though the idols are legion that / many run / after, //
their drink offerings of blood I will not offer, neither make mention of their / names up/on my / lips.

4 The Lord himself is my portion / and my / cup; //
in your hands a/lone / is my / fortune.

5 My share has fallen in a / fair / land; //
indeed, I / have a / goodly / heritage.

6 I will bless the Lord who has / given me / counsel, //
and in the night watches / he in/structs my / heart.

7 I have set the Lord / always be/fore me; //
he is at my right / hand; I / shall not / fall.

8 Wherefore my heart is glad and my / spirit re/joices; //
my flesh / also shall / rest se/cure.

9 For you will not abandon my / soul to / Death, //
nor suffer your / faithful one to / see the / Pit.

10 You will show me the path of life; in your presence is the / fullness of / joy //
and in your right hand are / pleasures for / ever/more.

Psalm 17

T A Walmisley

1 Hear my just cause, O Lord; consider / my com/plaint; //
listen to my prayer, which comes / not from / lying / lips.

2 Let my vindication come / forth from your / presence; //
let your eyes be/hold / what is / right.

3 Weigh my heart, ex/amine me by / night, //
refine me, and you will find / no im/purity / in me.

4 My mouth does not trespass for / earthly re/wards; //
I have / heeded the / words * of your / lips.

5 My footsteps hold fast in the ways of / your com/mandments; //
my feet have not / stumbled / in your / paths.

6 I call upon you, O God, for / you will / answer me; //
incline your ear to me, and / listen / to my / words.

7 Show me your marvellous / loving / kindness, //
O Saviour of those who take refuge at your right hand from / those who / rise up a/gainst them.

8 Keep me as the / apple * of your / eye; //
hide me under the / shadow / of your / wings,

9 From the wicked / who as/sault me, //
from my enemies who surround me to / take a/way my / life.

10 They have closed their / heart to / pity //
and their / mouth speaks / proud / things.

11 They press me hard, they surround me on / every / side, //
watching how they may / cast me / to the / ground,

12 Like a lion that is greedy / for its / prey, //
like a young lion / lurking in / secret / places.

13 Arise, Lord; confront them and / cast them / down; //
deliver me from the / wicked / by your / sword.

14 Deliver me, O Lord, / by your / hand //
from those whose / portion in / life * is un/ending,

15 Whose bellies you / fill with your / treasure, //
who are well supplied with children and / leave their / wealth * to their / little ones.

16 As for me, I shall see your / face in / righteousness; //
when I awake and behold your /likeness, / I shall be / satisfied.

Psalm 18

RSCM CW Psalter--No.20. | katapi Media Player (midi)

C V Stanford

1 I love you, O / Lord my / strength. //
The Lord is my crag, my / fortress and / my de/liverer,

2 My God, my rock in / whom I take / refuge, //
my shield, the horn of my sal/vation / and my / stronghold.

3 > I cried to the / Lord in my / anguish //
and I was / saved / from my / enemies.

4 The cords of / death en/twined me //
and the torrents of des/truction / over/whelmed me.

5 The cords of the Pit / fastened a/bout me //
and the / snares of / death en/tangled me.

6 In my distress I / called upon the / Lord //
and cried / out to my / God for / help.

7 He heard my voice / in his / temple //
and my / cry / came to his / ears.

8 The earth / trembled and / quaked; //
the foundations of the mountains shook; they / reeled be/cause he was / angry.

9 Smoke rose from his nostrils and a consuming fire went / out of his / mouth; //
burning / coals / blazed forth / from him.

10 He parted the heavens / and came / down //
and thick / darkness was / under his / feet.

11 He rode upon the / cherubim and / flew; //
he came / flying * on the / wings of the / wind.

12 He made darkness his covering / round a/bout him, //
dark waters and thick / clouds / his pa/vilion.

13 From the brightness of his presence, / through the / clouds //
burst / hailstones and / coals of / fire.

14 The Lord also thundered / out of / heaven; //
the Most High uttered his voice with / hailstones and / coals of / fire.

15 He sent out his / arrows and /scattered them; //
he hurled down / lightnings and / put them to / flight.

16 The springs of the / ocean were / seen, //
and the foun/dations * of the / world un/covered

16a at your re/buke, O / Lord,
at the blast of the / breath of / your dis/pleasure.

C V Stanford

17 He reached down from on / high and / took me; //
he drew me / out of the / mighty / waters.

18 He delivered me from my / strong / enemy, //
from foes that / were too / mighty / for me.

19 They came upon me in the / day of my / trouble; //
but the / Lord was / my up/holder.

20 He brought me out into a / place of / liberty; //
he rescued me be/cause he de/lighted / in me.

21 The Lord rewarded me after my / righteous / dealing; //
according to the cleanness of my / hands he / recom/pensed me,

22 Because I had kept the / ways of the / Lord //
and had not gone / wickedly a/way from my / God,

23 For I had an eye to / all his / laws, //
and did not cast / out his com/mandments / from me.

24 I was also whole/hearted be/fore him //
and / kept myself / from in/iquity;

25 Therefore the Lord rewarded me after my / righteous / dealing, //
and according to the cleanness of my / hands / in his / sight.

26 With the faithful you / show yourself / faithful; //
with the / true you / show yourself / true;

27 With the pure you / show yourself / pure, //
but with the crooked you / show your/self per/verse.

28 For you will save a / lowly / people //
and bring down the / high / looks * of the / proud.

29 You also shall / light my / candle; //
the Lord my God shall make my / darkness / to be / bright.

30 By your help I shall run at an / enemy / host; //
with the help of my God / I can leap / over a / wall.

J Barnby

31 As for God, his way is perfect;
the word of the Lord is / tried * in the / fire; //
he is a shield to / all who / trust in / him.

32 For who is God / but the / Lord, //
and who is the / rock ex/cept our / God?

33 It is God who girds me a/bout with / strength //
and / makes my / way / perfect.

34 He makes my / feet like / hinds' feet //
so that I tread / surely / on the / heights.

35 He teaches my / hands to / fight //
and my arms to / bend a / bow of / bronze.

36 You have given me the shield of / your sal/vation; //
your right hand upholds me and your / grace has / made me / great.

37 You enlarge my / strides be/neath me, //
yet my / feet / do not / slide.

38 I will pursue my enemies and / over/take them, //
nor turn again un/til I / have des/troyed them.

39 I will smite them down so they / cannot / rise; //
they shall / fall be/neath my / feet.

40 You have girded me with / strength * for the / battle; //
you will cast / down my / enemies / under me;

41 You will make my foes turn their / backs up/on me //
and I shall des/troy / them that / hate me.

42 They will cry out, but there shall be / none to / help them; //
they will cry to the Lord, / but he / will not / answer.

43 I shall beat them as small as the / dust * on the / wind; //
I will cast them out as the / mire / in the / streets.

44 You will deliver me from the / strife * of the / peoples; //
you will / make me the / head * of the / nations.

45 A people I have not known shall serve me;
as soon as they hear me, they / shall o/bey me; //
strangers will / humble them/selves be/fore me.

46 The foreign peoples will / lose / heart //
and come / trembling / out of their / strongholds.

49 You that deliver me from my enemies, you will set me up a/bove my / foes; //

50 Therefore will I give you thanks, O Lord, a/mong the / nations //
and sing / praises / to your / name,

Psalm 19

RSCM CW Psalter--No.24. | katapi Media Player (midi)

T A Walmisley

1 The heavens are telling the / glory of / God //
and the / firmament pro/claims his / handiwork.

2 One day pours out its / song * to an/other //
and one night unfolds / knowledge / to an/other.

3 They have neither / speech nor / language //
and their / voices / are not / heard,

4 Yet their sound has gone out into / all / lands //
and their / words * to the / ends of the / world.

5 In them has he set a tabernacle / for the / sun, //
that comes forth as a bridegroom out of his chamber and rejoices as a / champion to / run his / course.

6 It goes forth from the end of the heavens and runs to the very / end a/gain, //
and there is nothing / hidden / from its / heat.

7 The law of the Lord is perfect, re/viving the / soul; //
the testimony of the Lord is sure and gives / wisdom / to the / simple.

8 The statutes of the Lord are right and re/joice the / heart; //
the commandment of the Lord is pure and gives / light / to the / eyes.

9 The fear of the Lord is clean and en/dures for / ever; //
the judgements of the Lord are true and / righteous / alto/gether.

10 More to be desired are they than gold, more than / much fine / gold, //
sweeter also than honey, / dripping / from the / honeycomb.

11 By them also is your / servant / taught //
and in keeping them / there is / great re/ward.

12 Who can tell how often / they of/fend? //
O cleanse me / from my / secret / faults!

13 Keep your servant also from pre/sumptuous / sins //
lest they get do/minion / over / me;

13a so shall I be / un/defiled,
and / innocent of / great of/fence.

14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable / in your / sight, //
O Lord, my / strength and / my re/deemer.

1 May the Lord hear you in the / day of / trouble, //
the name of the / God of / Jacob de/fend you;

2 Send you / help from his / sanctuary //
and / strengthen you / out of / Zion;

3 Remember / all your / offerings //
and ac/cept your / burnt / sacrifice;

4 Grant you your / heart's de/sire //
and ful/fil / all your / mind.

5 May we rejoice in your salvation and triumph in the / name of our / God; //
may the Lord per/form all / your pe/titions.

6 Now I know that the Lord will / save his a/nointed; //
he will answer him from his holy heaven, with the mighty / strength of / his right / hand.

7 Some put their trust in chariots and / some in / horses, //
but we will call only on the / name of the / Lord our / God.

8 They are brought / down and / fallen, //
but we are / risen / and stand / upright.

9 O Lord, / save the / king //
and answer us / when we / call up/on you.

Psalm 21

RSCM CW Psalter--No 26. | katapi Media Player (midi)

T A Walmisley

1 The king shall rejoice in your / strength, O / Lord; //
how greatly shall he re/joice in / your sal/vation!

2 You have given him his / heart's de/sire //
and have not de/nied * the re/quest of his / lips.

3 For you come to meet him with / blessings of / goodness //
and set a crown of pure / gold up/on his / head.

4 He asked of you life / and you / gave it him, //
length of / days, for / ever and / ever.

5 His honour is great because of / your sal/vation; //
glory and majesty / have you / laid up/on him.

6 You have granted him ever/lasting fe/licity //
and will make him / glad with / joy * in your / presence.

7 For the king puts his / trust in the / Lord; //
because of the loving-kindness of the Most High, he shall / not be / over/thrown.

8 Your hand shall mark down / all your / enemies; //
your right hand will / find out / those who / hate you.

9 You will make them like a fiery oven in the / time of your / wrath; //
the Lord will swallow them up in his anger / and the / fire will con/sume them.

10 Their fruit you will root / out of the / land //
and their / seed * from a/mong its in/habitants.

11 Because they intend / evil a/gainst you //
and devise wicked schemes / which they / cannot per/form,

12 You will / put them to / flight //
when you / aim your / bow at their / faces.

13 Be exalted, O Lord, in / your own / might; //
we will make / music and / sing of your / power.

Psalm 22

RSCM CW Psalter--No.27. | katapi Media Player (midi)

L Flintoft

1 My God, my God, why have / you for/saken me, //
and are so far from my salvation, from the / words of / my dis/tress?

2 O my God, I cry in the daytime, but you / do not / answer; //
and by night also, / but I / find no / rest.

3 Yet you / are the / Holy One, //
enthroned up/on the / praises of / Israel.

4 Our forebears / trusted in / you; //
they / trusted, and / you de/livered them.

5 They cried out to you and / were de/livered; //
they put their trust in you / and were / not con/founded.

6 But as for me, I am a worm and / no / man, //
scorned by all / and des/pised * by the / people.


7 All who see me / laugh me to / scorn; //
they curl their lips and / wag their / heads, / saying,

8 'He trusted in the Lord; / let him de/liver him; //
let him de/liver him, if / he de/lights in him.'

9 But it is you that took me / out of the / womb //
and laid me safe up/on my / mother's / breast.

10 On you was I cast ever since / I was / born; //
you are my God even / from my / mother's / womb.

11 > Be not far from me, for trouble is / near at / hand //
and / there is / none to / help.

12 Mighty oxen / come a/round me; //
fat bulls of Bashan close me / in on / every / side.

13 They gape upon me / with their / mouths, //
as it were a / ramping * and a / roaring / lion.

14 I am poured out like water; all my bones are / out of / joint; //
my heart has become like wax / melting * in the / depths of my / body.

15 My mouth is dried up like a potsherd; my tongue / cleaves to my / gums; //
you have / laid me * in the / dust of / death.

16 For the hounds are all about me, the pack of evildoers close / in on / me; //
they / pierce my / hands and my / feet.

17 I can count / all my / bones; //
they stand / staring and / looking up/on me.

18 They divide my / garments a/mong them; //
they cast / lots / for my / clothing.

19 Be not far from / me, O / Lord; //
you are my / strength; / hasten to / help me.

20 Deliver my / soul * from the / sword, //
my poor / life * from the / power of the / dog.

21 Save me from the / lion's / mouth, from the horns of wild oxen. //
/ You have / answered / me!

23 Praise the Lord, / you that / fear him; //
O seed of Jacob, glorify him; stand in awe of / him, O / seed of / Israel.

24 For he has not despised nor abhorred the suffering of the poor;

but when they / cried to / him he / heard them.

25 From you comes my praise in the great / congre/gation; //
I will perform my vows in the / presence of / those that / fear you.

those who seek the Lord shall praise him; their / hearts shall / live for / ever.


27 All the ends of the earth shall remember and / turn to the / Lord, //

30 He has saved my life for himself; my des/cendants shall /serve him; //
this shall be told of the Lord for / gener/ations to / come.

14 Teach me your / way, O / Lord; //
lead me on a level path, because of / those who / lie in / wait for me.

15 Deliver me not into the / will of my / adversaries, //
for false witnesses have risen up against me, and / those who / breathe out / violence.

16 I believe that I shall see the / goodness * of the / Lord //
in the / land / of the / living.

17 Wait for the Lord; be strong and he shall / comfort your / heart; //
wait / patiently / for the / Lord.

Psalm 28

RSCM CW Psalter--No.36. | katapi Media Player (midi)

S Wesley

1 To you I call, O Lord my rock; be not / deaf * to my / cry, //
lest, if you do not hear me, I become like / those who go / down * to the / Pit.

2 Hear the voice of my prayer when I cry / out to / you, //
when I lift up my / hands * to your / holy of / holies.

3 Do not snatch me away with the wicked, with the / evil/doers, //
who speak peaceably with their neighbours, while / malice is / in their / hearts.

4 Repay them ac/cording * to their / deeds //
and according to the / wickedness of / their de/vices.

5 Reward them according to the / work of their / hands //
and / pay them their / just de/serts.

6 They take no heed of the Lord's doings, nor of the / works of his / hands; //
therefore shall he break them down / and not / build them / up.

7 Blessed / be the / Lord, //
for he has / heard the / voice of my / prayer.

8 The Lord is my strength / and my / shield; //
my heart has trusted in / him and / I am / helped;

9 > Therefore my heart / dances for / joy //
and in my / song / will I / praise him.

10 The Lord is the / strength of his / people, //
a safe / refuge for / his a/nointed.

11 Save your people and / bless your in/heritance; //
shepherd them and / carry / them for / ever.

Psalm 29

M Luther

1 Ascribe to the Lord, you / powers of / heaven, //
ascribe to the / Lord / glory and / strength.

2 Ascribe to the Lord the honour / due * to his / name; //
worship the / Lord * in the / beauty of / holiness.

3 The voice of the Lord is upon the waters; the God of / glory / thunders; //
the Lord is up/on the / mighty / waters.

4 The voice of the Lord is mighty in / oper/ation; //
the voice of the Lord / is a / glorious / voice.

5 The voice of the Lord / breaks the / cedar trees; //
the Lord / breaks the / cedars of / Lebanon;

6 He makes Lebanon / skip * like a / calf //
and Sirion / like a / young wild / ox.

7 The voice of the Lord splits the flash of lightning; the voice of the Lord / shakes the / wilderness; //
the Lord / shakes the / wilderness of / Kadesh.

8 The voice of the Lord makes the oak trees writhe and strips the / forests / bare; //
in his / temple / all cry, / 'Glory!'

9 The Lord sits enthroned a/bove the / water flood; //
the Lord sits enthroned as / king for / ever/more.

10 The Lord shall give / strength to his / people; //
the Lord shall give his / people the / blessing of / peace.

Psalm 30

RSCM CW Psalter--No.38. | katapi Media Player (midi)

W Havergal

1 I will exalt you, O Lord, because you have / raised me / up //
and have not let my / foes / triumph / over me.

2 O Lord my God, I cried / out to / you //
and / you have / healed / me.

3 You brought me up, O Lord, / from the / dead; //
you restored me to life from among / those that go / down * to the / Pit.

4 Sing to the Lord, you / servants of / his; //
give / thanks to his / holy / name.

5 For his wrath endures but the twinkling of an eye, his favour / for a / lifetime. //
Heaviness may endure for a night, but / joy comes / in the / morning.


6 In my prosperity I said, 'I shall / never be / moved. //
You, Lord, of your goodness, have / made my / hill so / strong.'

7 Then you / hid your / face from me //
and / I was / utterly dis/mayed.

8 To you, O / Lord, I / cried; //
to the Lord I / made my / suppli/cation:

9 'What profit is there in my blood, if I go / down * to the / Pit? //
Will the dust praise you / or de/clare your / faithfulness?

10 'Hear, O Lord, and have / mercy up/on me; //
O / Lord, / be my / helper.'

11 You have turned my mourning / into / dancing; //
you have put off my sackcloth and / girded / me with / gladness;

12 Therefore my heart sings to / you without / ceasing; //
O Lord my God, I will / give you / thanks for / ever.
