The Excellency of God

Representative Text

1 My God, I will extol Thee
And ever bless Thy Name;
Each day will I give thanks to Thee
And all Thy praise proclaim.
Great is the Lord and mighty,
And highly to be praised;
His greatness is unsearchable,
Above our knowledge raised.

2 To every generation
thy glory shall be told,
Thy honor and Thy majesty
In memory I will hold;
Thy mighty power and greatness
Shall all mankind confess,
And tell the story of Thy love,
And sing Thy righteousness.

3 The Lord is very gracious
And most compassionate;
His anger is most slow to rise,
His mercy is most great;
On all His helpless creatures
His tender mercies rest;
By all His works He shall be praised,
By all His saints be blest.

4 The glory of His kingdom
Proclaimed abroad shall be,
That all may know His mighty deeds
And glorious majesty;
His kingdom is eternal,
His throne shall stand secure,
And His dominion without end
Through ages shall endure.
