52. O Praise the Lord! O Thank the Lord!

1 O praise the Lord! O thank the Lord!
For bountiful is he;
because his lovingkindness lasts
to all eternity.

2 Who can express Jehovah's praise
or tell his deed of might?
O blessed are they who justice keep
and ever do the right.

3 Regard me with the favor, Lord,
which thou dost bear to thine.
O visit thou my soul in love;
make thy salvation mine:

4 That I may see thy people's good
and in their joy rejoice,
and may with thine inheritance
exult with cheerful voice.
