Psalm 11 Hymn

My favourite Psalm 11 hymn is 'Since I take refuge in the Lord' by Karl Kohlhase.

'Since I take refuge in the Lord' Song Lyrics

Since I take refuge in the Lord (echo)

How can you say to my soul (echo)

Fly like a bird (echo)

Unto the mountains (echo)

(repeat)

-----------------------------------------------------

See the wicked bend their bow

Fix their arrow on the string

In the darkness they will shoot

At the upright in heart

If foundations are destroyed

Then what can the righteous do?

If foundations are destroyed

Then what can the righteous do?

REFRAIN

In His temple is the Lord

Who in Heaven is enthroned

With His eyes He will behold

And will test the sons of men

For the Lord loves righteousness

The upright will see His face

Yes the Lord loves righteousness

The upright will see His face

REFRAIN

Since I take refuge in the Lord…

Psalm 12 Hymn

My favourite Psalm 12 hymn is the 'The Word of the Lord is a pure word' by Jesse & Leah Roberts.

'The Word of the Lord is a pure word' Song Lyrics

The word of the Lord is a pure word
The word of the Lord is a pure word
Like refined and shined silver
Purified seven times over
Is Your promise, is Your promise

And this is what You promise
You will come and save the helpless
You have heard the cry of every poor
You will grant them what they long for

Psalm 13 Hymn

Psalm 13 Hymn is a beautiful prayer in the Bible. My favourite Psalm 13 Hymn is 'How long will You forget me?' by Jesse & Leah Roberts.

'How long will You forget me?' Song Lyrics

How long will You forget me
How long will You hide Your face
How long will my heart anguish
With sorrow day by day

How long will You forget me
How long will You look away
How long will my mind anguish
With sorrow day by day

Restore the light to my eyes
Turn and answer me, answer me
Restore the light to my eyes
Lest I sleep the sleep and never wake

How long will You forget me
How long will You hide Your face
How long will my heart anguish
With sorrow everyday

Restore the light to my eyes
Turn and answer me, answer me
Restore the light to my eyes
Lest I sleep the sleep and never wake

But my heart will rejoice in Your deliverance
I will sing to the Lord because You are generous.

Psalm 14 Hymn

My favourite Psalm 14 Hymn is 'The Lord looks down from heaven' by Jesse & Leah Roberts. Their ministry website everypsalm.com has a collection of hymns composed by them.

'The Lord looks down from heaven' Song Lyrics

The Lord looks down from heaven
On the children of men
To see if there are any
Who truly understand who truly understand

Only fools say in their hearts
There is no God, there is no God

Who will come from Zion
To rescue His own
You will come from Zion
And we will rejoice and we will rejoice

On the coming day, the righteous say:
"He is our God, He is our God"

Psalm 15 Hymn

My favourite psalm 15 hymn is 'Lord, who shall abide in Thy tabernacle?' by SingtheKJV. They have composed and sung a beautiful hymn using all the verses from Psalm 15 King James Version.

'Lord, who shall abide in Thy tabernacle?' Song Lyrics

Lord, who shall abide in Thy tabernacle?

Who shall dwell in Thy Holy hill?

He that walketh uprightly,

And worketh righteousness,

And speaketh the truth in his heart.

He that backbiteth not with his tongue,

Nor doeth evil to his neighbour,

Nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.

In whose eyes a vile person is contemned;

but he honoureth them that fear the Lord.

He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.

He that putteth not out his money to usury,

Nor taketh reward against the innocent.

He that doeth these things shall never be moved.

Psalm 16 Hymn

My favourite psalm 16 hymn 'I said to the Lord' by Jesse & Leah Roberts.

'I said to the Lord' Song Lyrics

I said to the Lord, You are my master
Every good thing I have comes from You
Comes from You

I know that the Lord is always with me
I will not be shaken for He is with me

I said to the Lord, You are my portion
Every day and every night, I rest easy
Rest easy

I know that the Lord is always with me
I will not be shaken for He is with me

I said to the Lord, You hold my future
Truly my inheritance is beautiful
Is beautiful

In Your presence is fullness of joy
In Your presence is pleasure forever
And that is where I want to be
That is where I want to be
The pleasure of living with You
The pleasure of being with You

Psalm 17 Hymn

My favourite psalm 17 hymn is 'O, keep me as the apple of Your eye' by Karl Kohlhase.

'O, keep me as the apple of Your eye' Song Lyrics

O Keep me as the apple of Your eye

Hide me in the shadow of Your wings

Keep me as the apple of Your eye

Hide me in the shadow of Your wings

-----------------------------------------------------

Hear a just cause, O Lord

Attend unto my cry

Turn Your ear to my prayer

From lips free of deceit

O let my judgment come from You

You who discern what is right

Search my heart in the night

And find in me no wrong

By Your Word I avoid

The ways of violent men

My steps have held firm to Your paths

See how my feet have not slipped

REFRAIN

I will call upon You

O God, You’ll answer me

Turn Your ear to my words

And show me Your steadfast love

O Savior of the ones who seek

Salvation at Your right hand

Deadly foes now surround

With hearts closed against me

Their mouths speaking with pride

Their eyes set to cast down

Eager to tear me like a lion

Like a young lion on the prowl

Rise, O Lord, and confront

And save me by Your sword

From the men of this world

Whose portion is in this life

Their bellies filled up with treasure

Leaving their wealth to their sons

REFRAIN

(Bridge repeated 4 times)

As for me I shall see Your face

Your likeness when I awake

REFRAIN

Psalm 18 Hymn

My favourite psalm 18 hymn is 'Caught up and entangled' by Jesse & Leah Roberts.

'Caught up and entangled' Song Lyrics

Caught up and entangled in the ropes of death
Torrents of destruction swept over my head
The grave robes wrapped their wretched trap

I called to the Lord with the voice that I had left
I cried to my God for the only help that made sense
From his temple, He heard my voice
My dying cry reached His ears

You came to the earth with shaking
There was fire from Your mouth
Mounted on the mighty angels
From the heavens, You came down
Veiled in power and darkness
Your perfect voice resounds
Thunder mighty followed lightning
Grounds foundations all laid out

To the faithful, You show Yourself faithful
To the pure, You show yourself pure
You are the rescue for the afflicted
To the blameless You are innocent
You are the light to every lamp stand
To the darkness illuminate
A rock, a shield, salvation wielded
Oh God, You are my strength

The Lord lives; may my rock be praised.

Psalm 19 Hymn

My favourite psalm 19 hymn is 'The heavens are telling the glory of God' by Karl Kohlhase.

'The heavens are telling the glory of God' Song Lyrics

The heavens are telling the glory of God

The firmament heralds the works of His hand

Daily their speech is outpoured

Nightly their knowledge declared

Now there is no speaking, nor do they use words

Their voice is unheard, yet it fills the whole world

Surely they send out their words

Unto the ends of the earth

-----------------------------------------------------

Let the words of my mouth

And the thoughts of my heart

Be acceptable in Your sight,

O Lord,

My Rock and Redeemer

-----------------------------------------------------

He placed in the heavens a tent for the sun

Which comes like a bridegroom departing his room

Like a strong man so it goes

Running its course full of joy

From one end of heaven its rising is seen

Completing its circuit, the other end gleams

Nothing is hid from its heat

No, nothing is hid from its heat

REFRAIN

The Lord’s law is perfect, the soul to revive

His statements are sure, making simple men wise

Right precepts gladden the heart

Pure commands brighten the eyes

Both clean and enduring, the fear of the Lord

And righteous completely are all His true Words

Valued above finest gold

Sweeter than pure honeycomb

REFRAIN

And further, Your servant is warned by Your Words

He, always in keeping them, finds great reward

But who discerns all his flaws?

Clear me from my hidden faults

So may he be kept from presumptuous sins

Give them no dominion to rule over him

Then I shall be innocent

And blameless of all greater sin

REFRAIN x2

The heavens are telling the glory of God

Psalm 20 Hymn

My favourite psalm 20 hymns are 'Some trust in chariots' by Law of Liberty and 'The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble' by SingtheKJV.

'Some trust in chariots' Song Lyrics

Some trust in chariots, and some in horses:

But we will remember the name of the LORD our God.

Some trust in chariots, and some in horses:

But we will remember the name of the LORD our God.

Now I know that the LORD saves His anointed;

He will hear him from His holy heaven

With the saving strength of His right hand.

They are brought down and fallen:

But we are risen, and stand upright.

'The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble' Song Lyrics

The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble;

The name of the God of Jacob defend thee;

Send thee help from the sanctuary,

And strengthen thee out of Zion;

Remember all thy offerings,

And accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah.

Grant thee according to thine own heart,

And fulfil all thy counsel.

We will rejoice in thy salvation,

And in the name of our God,

We will set up our banners:

The Lord fulfil all thy petitions.

Now know I that the Lord

Saveth his anointed;

He will hear him from His holy heaven

With the saving strength of his right hand.

Some trust in chariots, and some in horses:

But we will remember the name of the Lord our God.

They are brought down and fallen:

But we are risen, and stand upright.

Save, Lord: let the king hear us when we call.
