Psalm 009

1    Lord, thee I’ll praise with all my heart,

          thy wonders all proclaim.

2    In thee, most High, I’ll greatly joy,

          and sing unto thy name.

3    When back my foes were turn’d, they fell,

          and perish’d at thy sight:

4    For thou maintain’dst my right and cause;

          on throne sat’st judging right.

5    The heathen thou rebuked hast,

          the wicked overthrown;

     Thou hast put out their names, that they

          may never more be known.

6    O en’my! now destructions have

          an end perpetual:

     Thou cities raz’d; perish’d with them

          is their memorial.

7    God shall endure for aye; he doth

          for judgment set his throne;

8    In righteousness to judge the world,

          justice to give each one.

9    God also will a refuge be

          for those that are oppress’d;

     A refuge will he be in times

          of trouble to distress’d.

10   And they that know thy name, in thee

          their confidence will place:

     For thou hast not forsaken them

          that truly seek thy face.

11   O sing ye praises to the Lord,

          that dwells in Sion hill;

     And all the nations among

          his deeds record ye still.

12   When he enquireth after blood,

          he then rememb’reth them:

     The humble folk he not forgets

          that call upon his name.

13   Lord, pity me; behold the grief

          which I from foes sustain;

     Ev’n thou, who from the gates of death

          dost raise me up again;

14  That I, in Sion’s daughters’ gates,

          may all thy praise advance;

     And that I may rejoice always

          in thy deliverance.

15  The heathen are sunk in the pit

          which they themselves prepar’d;

     And in the net which they have hid

          their own feet fast are snar’d.

16  The Lord is by the judgment known

          which he himself hath wrought:

     The sinners’ hands do make the snares

          wherewith themselves are caught.

17  They who are wicked into hell

          each one shall turned be;

     And all the nations that forget

          to seek the Lord most high.

18 For they that needy are shall not

          forgotten be alway;

     The expectation of the poor

          shall not be lost for aye.

19 Arise, Lord, let not man prevail;

          judge heathen in thy sight:

20   That they may know themselves but men,

          the nations, Lord, affright.

Ekklesia Muskogee is a reformed baptist church that gathers for worship in Muskogee, Oklahoma. We confess the 1689 second London baptist confession of faith. We affirm the five solas of the Reformation as well as the doctrines of grace (otherwise known as the five points of Calvinism), and each of our pastors would not be ashamed to be called a Calvinist. We are a church led by elders, of which there is a plurality (also called pastors and overseers in the Scriptures). Our mission is to make disciples, love cities, and plant churches.
