706. Let us, with a gladsome mind

1 Let us, with a gladsome mind,
praise the Lord, for he is kind:

[Refrain:]
For his mercies ay endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

2 Let us blaze his name abroad,
for of gods he is the God: [Refrain]

3 He with all-commanding might
filled the new-made world with light: [Refrain]

4 He the golden-tressèd sun
caused all day his course to run: [Refrain]

5 And the hornèd moon at night
'mid her spangled sisters bright: [Refrain]

6 All things living he doth feed,
his full hand supplies their need: [Refrain]

7 Let us, with a gladsome mind,
praise the Lord, for he is kind: [Refrain]
