1 My God O King, I'll thee extol,
And bless thy name for aye.
2 For ever will I praise thy name,
And bless thee ev'ry day,
3 Great is the Lord most worthy praise,
His greatness search can none.
4 Age unto age shall praise thy works,
And thy great ads make known.

5 Thy glory honour, majesty,
Of them difcourfe will I,
And of the admirable works
By thee done wondrously.
6 Also men of thy mighty works
Shall speak, which dreadful are;
And I thy great magnificence,
Will openly declare.

7 The mem'ry of thy goodness great
They largely shall express;
And they shall with a thankful voice
Sing of thy righteousness.
8 Jehovah he is gracious,
And merciful is he:
Slow unto anger: and he is
Great in benignity.


9 The Lord is good to all; on all
His works his tenderness.
io Thee all thy works shall praise, O Lord,
And thee thy saints fhall bless
11 They'll of thy kingdom's glory speak,
And talk of thy pow'r high
12 To make mens sons his great acts know,
And kingdom's majefty.

13 Thy kingdom is a kingdom aye,
And thy reign lasts always
14 The Lord doth hold up all who fall,
And all bow'd down ones raise,
15 All eyes wait on thee, and their meat
Thou dost in season bring.
16 Thy open hand fills the desire
Of ev'ry living thing.

17 The Lord is just in all his ways,
And holy in's works all.
18 He's near to all who call on him,
In truth who on him call.
19 He of all them who do him fear
Will their desire fulfil:
And he will hearken to their cry,
Them likewise save he will.

20 The Lord preserveth all of them
Of him that lovers be:
But whosoever wicked are
Destroy them quite will he.
21 My mouth the praises of the Lord,
Discoursing shall express;
And let all flesh his holy name;
For ever, ever bless.
