A New Song
"He hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God." -- Ps. xl.3.

R. Rolle, 1349.

tr., Emma Frances Bevan, 1899

I know not the song of Thy praises,

Till Thou teach it, my God, to me --

Till I hear the still voice of Thy Spirit,

Who speaketh for ever of Thee --

Till I hear the celestial singing,

And learn the new song of Thy grace,

And then shall I tell forth the marvels

I learnt in Thy secret place.

Thy marvels, not mine, far surpassing

All thoughts of my heart must they be --

I can but declare the glad tidings,

As Thou hast declared them to me.
