Biblical Songs (Op. 99)

Bože! Bože! Píseň novou

Bože! Bože! píseň novou
Zpívati budu Tobě na loutně,
A žalmy Tobě prozpěvovati.
Na každý den dobrořečiti budu Tobě
A chváliti jméno Tvé na věky věků.
Hospodin jistě veliký jest
A vší chvály hodný,
A velikost jeho
Nemůž vystižena býti.
O slávě a kráse a velebnosti Tvé,
I o věcech Tvých předivných mluviti budu.
A moc přehrozných skutků Tvých
Všichni rozhlašovati budou;
I já důstojnost Tvou
Budu vypravovati.

I will sing a new song

I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee. I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever. Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever. Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable. I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works. And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and I will declare thy greatness.
Psalm 144:9 and 145:1-3,5,6
