^1Not unto us, Lord, not to us,
but do thou glory take
Unto thy name, ev'n for thy truth,
and for thy mercy's sake.
^2O wherefore should the heathen say,
Where is their God now gone?
^3But our God in the heavens is,
what pleas'd him he hath done.
^4Their idols silver are and gold,
work of men's hands they be.
^5Mouths have they, but they do not speak;
and eyes, but do not see;
^6Ears have they, but they do not hear;
noses, but savour not;
^7Hands, feet, but handle not, nor walk;
nor speak they through their throat.
^8Like them their makers are, and all
on them their trust that build.
^9O Isr'el, trust thou in the Lord,
he is their help and shield.
^10O Aaron's house, trust in the Lord,
their help and shield is he.
^11Ye that fear God, trust in the Lord,
their help and shield he'll be.
^12The Lord of us hath mindful been,
and he will bless us still:
He will the house of Isr'el bless,
bless Aaron's house he will.
^13Both small and great, that fear the Lord,
he will them surely bless.
^14The Lord will you, you and your seed,
aye more and more increase.
^15O blessed are ye of the Lord,
who made the earth and heav'n.
^16The heav'n, ev'n heav'ns, are God's, but he
earth to men's sons hath giv'n.
^17The dead, nor who to silence go,
God's praise do not record.
^18But henceforth we for ever will
bless God. Praise ye the Lord.
