And publicly give praise.

And ponder them all my days.

Oh, how majestic and glorious
Are all Your deeds and ways!
Holy and awesome is Your name,
Worthy of all my praise!

Your wonders come to mind.
O Lord, You’re gracious, compassionate e’er,
Providing for all mankind. [Refrain]

Upon Your love they rest;

Forever are we blest. [Refrain]

For all who keep Your ways,

Let us give eternal praise! [Refrain]
