111A. O Give the LORD Wholehearted Praise

1 O give the LORD wholehearted praise.
To him thanksgiving I will bring;
with all his people I will raise
my voice and of his glory sing.

2 His saints delight to search and trace
his mighty works and wondrous ways.
Majestic glory, boundless grace,
and righteousness his work displays.

3 God's wondrous deeds of faithfulness
his people ever keep in mind.
His works of love and graciousness
reveal that God the LORD is kind.

4 God's promise shall forever stand;
he cares for those who trust his word.
Upon his saints his mighty hand
the wealth of nations has conferred.

5 His works are true and just indeed;
his precepts are forever sure.
In truth and righteousness decreed,
they shall forevermore endure.

6 By God's own hand redemption came;
his covenant sure no change can know.
Let all revere his holy name
in heaven above and earth below.

7 In reverence and in godly fear
we find the key to wisdom's ways;
the wise his holy name revere.
Through endless ages sound his praise!
