Appears in 215 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 92 First Line: It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord
Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 220.127.116.11 Appears in 732 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 92 First Line: Sweet is the work, my God, my King Lyrics:
Sweet is the work, my God, my King,
To praise thy name, give thanks and sing,
To show thy love by morning light,
And talk of all thy truth at night.
Sweet is the day of sacred rest,
No mortal cares shall seize my breast;
O may my heart in tune be found,
Like David's harp of solemn sound!
My heart shall triumph in my Lord,
And bless his works, and bless his word;
Thy works of grace, how bright they shine!
How deep thy counsels! how divine!
Fools never raise their thoughts so high;
Like brutes they live, like brutes they die;
Like grass they flourish, till thy breath
Blast them in everlasting death.
But I shall share a glorious part
When grace hath well refined my heart;
And fresh supplies of joy are shed,
Like holy oil, to cheer my head.
Sin (my worst enemy before)
Shall vex my eyes and ears no more;
My inward foes shall all be slain,
Nor Satan break my peace again.
Then shall I see, and hear, and know
All I desired or wished below;
And every power find sweet employ
In that eternal world of joy.

Psalm 92 Part 1
Meter: 18.104.22.168 D Appears in 17 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 92 Lyrics:
1 It is good to sing your praises
and to thank you, O Most High,
showing forth your loving-kindness
when the morning lights the sky.
It is good when night is falling
of your faithfulness to tell,
while with sweet, melodious praises
songs of adoration swell.
2 You have filled my heart with gladness
through the works your hands have wrought;
you have made my life victorious;
great your works and deep your thought.
You, O LORD, on high exalted,
reign forevermore in might;
all your enemies shall perish,
sin be banished from your sight.
3 But the good shall live before you,
planted in your dwelling place,
fruitful trees and ever verdant,
nourished by your boundless grace.
In his goodness to the righteous
God his righteousness displays;
God, my rock, my strength and refuge,
just and true are all your ways.

It Is Good to Sing Your Praises
Meter: 22.214.171.124 Appears in 24 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 92 First Line: To render thanks unto the Lord Lyrics:
1To render thanks unto the Lord
it is a comely thing,
And to thy name, O thou most High,
due praise aloud to sing.
2Thy loving-kindness to shew forth
when shines the morning light;
And to declare thy faithfulness
with pleasure ev’ry night.
3On a ten-stringed instrument,
upon the psaltery,
And on the harp with solemn sound,
and grave sweet melody.
4For thou, Lord, by thy mighty works
hast made my heart right glad;
And I will triumph in the works
which by thine hands were made.
5How great, Lord, are thy works! each thought
of thine a deep it is:
6A brutish man it knoweth not;
fools understand not this.
7When those that lewd and wicked are
spring quickly up like grass,
And workers of iniquity
do flourish all apace;
It is that they for ever may
destroyed be and slain;
8But thou, O Lord, art the most High,
for ever to remain.
9For, lo, thine enemies, O Lord,
thine en’mies perish shall;
The workers of iniquity
shall be dispersed all.
10But thou shalt, like unto the horn
of th’ unicorn, exalt
My horn on high: thou with fresh oil
anoint me also shalt.
11Mine eyes shall also my desire
see on mine enemies;
Mine ears shall of the wicked hear
that do against me rise.
12But like the palm-tree flourishing
shall be the righteous one;
He shall like to the cedar grow
that is in Lebanon.
13Those that within the house of God
are planted by his grace,
They shall grow up, and flourish all
in our God’s holy place.
14And in old age, when others fade,
they fruit still forth shall bring;
They shall be fat, and full of sap,
and aye be flourishing;
15To shew that upright is the Lord:
he is a rock to me;
And he from all unrighteousness
is altogether free.

to praise your name with tuneful chord,
to show your love with morning light
and tell your faithfulness each night.
Yes, it is good your praise to sing
and all our sweetest music bring.
2 O LORD, my song with joy expands
before the wonders of your hands.
How great the works that you have wrought;
how deep, O LORD, your every thought!
You make me glad; I sing your praise
for all your wondrous works and ways.
3 Though as the grass the wicked grow,
those evildoers do not know
the endless ruin they will see.
But God will reign eternally.
All foes will fall before his might;
the wicked shall be put to flight.
4 O LORD, you have exalted me
with royal strength and dignity.
With your anointing I am blest;
your grace and favor on me rest.
My eyes have seen the wicked die;
my ears have heard their hopeless cry.
5 The righteous all will flourish well
and in the house of God will dwell.
They will be planted like a tree,
will still in old age fruitful be.
The LORD our God is upright, just;
he is my Rock; in him I trust.

Thy daily stage of duty run;
Shake off dull sloth and joyful rise
To pay thy morning sacrifice.
2 In conversation be sincere,
Thy conscience as the noon-day clear;
Think how th'all-seeing God thy ways
And all thy secret thoughts surveys.
3 All praise to Thee, who safe hast kept
And hast refreshed me while I slept;
Grant, Lord, when I from death shall wake,
I may of endless light partake.
4 Lord, I my vows to Thee renew;
Disperse my sins as morning dew;
Guard my first springs of thought and will
And with Thyself my spirit fill.
5 Direct, control, suggest, this day
All I design or do or say
That all my pow'rs with all their might,
In Thy sole glory may unite.
6 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heav'nly host:
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
