33. Let Us with a Gladsome Mind

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

for his mercies shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

2 Let us sound 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 All things living he does feed;
his full hand supplies their need: [Refrain]

5 He his chosen race did bless
in the wasteful wilderness: [Refrain]

6 He has with a piteous eye
looked upon our misery: [Refrain]

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