136B. Let Us with a Gladsome Mind

1 Let us with a gladsome mind
praise the Lord, so good and kind,
for God's mercies shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

2 Let us blaze God's name abroad;
of all gods the Lord is God.
God with all commanding might
filled the new-made world with light.

Refrain:
For God's mercies shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

3 God has with a gracious eye
looked upon our misery;
for God's mercies shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

4 All things living God does feed;
with full hand supplies their need.
Let us then with gladsome mind
praise the Lord, so good and kind. [Refrain]

Notes: After singing the first two stanzas, sing the refrain four times. The refrain may be sung by two groups, the first one singing “For God’s mercies shall endure” and the other group responding with “ever faithful, ever sure.” Upon returning to sts. 3 and 4, the motifs of the refrain form a sort of descant to the melody line. The layering of the descant over the stanzas reflects the pervasiveness of the refrain that we find in the psalm. The interludes create space between each of these layered sections.
