God: What are you doing now?
King Arthur: Averting our eyes, oh Lord.
God: Well don’t. It’s just like those miserable hymns. Always so depressing. Now knock it off.

On afternoons of drowsy calm
We stood in the pannelled pew,
Singing one-voiced a Tate-and-Brady psalm
To the tune of ‘Cambridge New’.
We watched the elms, we watched the rooks,
The clouds upon the breeze,
Between the whiles of glancing at our books,
And swaying like trees.
So mindless were those outpourings! –
Though I am not aware
That I have gained by subtle thought on things
Since we stood psalming there. Thomas Hardy, Afternoon Service at Mellstock
Then on that day David delivered first this psalm to thank the Lord into the hand of Asaph and his brethren.
Give thanks unto the Lord, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people.
Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him, talk ye of all his wondrous works. I Chronicles 16:7-9
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. Psalms 1:1
Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him. Psalms 2:5&9-12
Arise, O Lord; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly. Psalms 3:7
For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.
The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity
Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the Lord will abhor the bloody and deceitful man. Psalms 5:4-6
O Lord, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. Psalms 6:1
Arise, O Lord, in thine anger, lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that thou hast commanded.
God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.
If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.
He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors. Psalms 7:6&11-13
When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence.
For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou sattest in the throne judging right.
Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.
O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and thou hast destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with them. Psalms 9:3-6
Why standest thou afar off, O Lord? Why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble? Psalms 10:1
The Lord is in his holy temple, the Lord’s throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.
The Lord trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.
Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup. Psalms 11:4-6
The Lord shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things. Psalms 12:3
How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me? Psalms 13:1&2
The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. Psalms 14:1
In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the Lord. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not. Psalms 15:4
Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.
O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee. Psalms 16:1&2
Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips. Psalms 16:4
Hear the right, O Lord, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips. Psalms 17:1
I will love thee, O Lord, my strength.
The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. Psalms 18:1&2
