89. O Lord, you are my God and King

1 O Lord, you are my God and King,
and I will always bless your name,
I will extol you every day,
and evermore your praise proclaim.

2 Our God is greatly to be praised,
his greatness is beyond our thought,
from age to age all human tongues
shall tell the wonders he has wrought.

3 Upon your glorious majesty
and wondrous works my mind shall dwell;
your deeds shall fill the world with awe,
and of your greatnes I will tell.

4 Your matchless goodness and your grace
your people shall commemorate,
and all your truth and righteousness
their joyful song shall celebrate.

5 Our God is good in all his ways,
his creatures know his constant care;
to all his works his love extends,
we all his tender mercies share.

6 Your works shall give you thanks, O Lord,
your saints your mighty acts shall show,
till peoples everywhere on earth
your kingdom, power and glory know.
