Edward Farr, ed.  Select Poetry of the Reign of Queen Elizabeth.  1845.
 
Psalme CXIII
VI. Sir Philip Sidney and the Countess of Pembroke
 
Laudate, pueri.

O YOU that serve the Lord,
To praise his name accord;
Jehova now and ever
Commending, ending never,
Whom all this earth resoundes        5
From east to westerne boundes.
 
He monarch raignes on high:
His glory treades the sky.
Like him who can be counted,
That dwells soe highly mounted?        10
Yet stooping low beholds
What heav’n and earth enfolds.
 
From dust the needy soule,
The wretch from miry hole
He lifts: yea, kings he makes them,        15
Yea, kings his people takes them:
He gives the barren wife
A fruitfull mother’s life.
