Representative Text

1 Give praise and thanks unto the Lord,
for bountiful is he;
his tender mercy doth endure
unto eternity.

2 God's mighty works who can express?
or show forth all his praise?
Blessèd are they that judgment keep,
and justly do always.

3 Remember me, Lord, with that love
which thou to thine dost bear;
with thy salvation, O my God,
to visit me draw near.

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

5 Blest be Jehovah, Israel's God,
to all eternity:
let all the people say, Amen.
Praise to the Lord give ye.
