11. Now Blessed Be the Lord Our God

1 Now blessed be the Lord our God,
the God of Israel,
for he alone does wondrous works
in glory that excel.

2 And blessed be his glorious name
to all eternity;
the whole earth let his glory fill.
Amen, so shall it be.

3 His wide dominion shall extend
from sea to utmost sea,
and unto earth's remotest bounds
his peaceful rule shall be.

4 Yea, all the kings shall bow to him,
his rule all nations hail;
he will regard the poor man's cry
when other helpers fail.
