Representative Text

1 Give thanks to God, for He is good,
His mercy ever doth endure;
Let all of Israel now say
His mercy evermore is sure.

Refrain:
It is better to trust in the Lord,
It is better to trust in the Lord,
It is better to trust in the Lord,
Than to put your confidence in man.

2 Let now the house of Aaron say
His mercy ever doth endure;
Let them that fear the Lord now say
His mercy ever doth endure. [Refrain]

3 In my distress I called on God;
Jehovah heard my earnest prayer;
And since the Lord is on my side,
What man can do I will not fear. [Refrain]
