Psalme CXXXIV
VI. Sir Philip Sidney and the Countess of Pembroke
 
Ecce nunc.

YOU that Jehova’s servants are,
Whose carefull watch, whose watchfull care
  Within his house are spent;
  Say thus with one assent,
  Jehova’s name be praised!        5
  Then let your handes be raised
    To holiest place,
    Where holiest grace
          Doth ay
            Remaine;        10
          And say
            Againe,
  Jehova’s name be praised!
Say last unto the company,
  Who tarrying make        15
  Their leave to take,
All blessings you accompany,
From him in plenty showered,
Whom Sion holds embowered,
  Who heav’n and earth of nought hath raised!        20
