1 My God and king, I'll Thee extol,
thy name I'll ever bless;
2 For ever will I praise thy name
in daily thankfulness.
3 Great is the LORD, most worthy praise;
his greatness search exceeds:
4 Age shall to age extol thy works
and show thy mighty deeds.

5 Of thy transcendent comeliness,
thy glory, majesty,
And of thy admirable works
with pleasure speak will I.
6 Yea, they shall of thy mighty works
discourse, which dreadful are;
And I will thy magnificence
to all the world declare.

7 The mem'ry of thy goodness great
they largely shall express;
And shall in joyful hymns of praise,
sing of thy right'ousness.

[2 Part]
8 Most gracious our JEHOVAH is,
most merciful is He;
Slow is to anger, and He is
great in benignity.
9 The LORD is good, and ev'n to all
his goodness does appear;
And over all his works behold
his tender mercies are.

10 LORD, all thy works shew forth thy praise;
and Thee thy saits shall bless:
11 Shall of thy kingdom's glory speak,
and thy great power express.
12 That so the sons of men abroad
thy mighty acts may know;
And that thy kingdom's majesty
and glory they may show.

13 Thy kingdom firm establish'd is,
never to know an end;
And thy supreme dominion shall
through ev'ry age extend.

[3 Part]
14 Those who just ready are to fall,
JEHOVAH doth sustain;
And those he sees are bowed down
He raises up again.
15 All eyes wait on Him, and their food
He in fit season gives:
16 His open hand fills the desire
of ev'ry thing that lives.

17 The LORD is just in all his ways,
his works ae holy all:
18 He's near to all who call on Him,
in truth that on Him call.
19 He will of them who Him revere,
the just desire fulfill;
And He will hear their cry to Him,
and save them then He will.

20 All who the LORD sincerely love
his safe-guard shall enjoy;
But He all those who wicked are
will utterly destroy.
21 My mouth the praises of the LORD,
shall gratefully express:
And let all flesh his holy name
ever and ever bless.
