1 Oh, praise the Lord, all ye nations!
Praise Him, all ye people!
For His merciful kindness is great toward us,
And the truth of the Lord endureth forever;
Praise ye the Lord!

Praise Him, praise Him!
Praise ye the Lord!
Praise Him, praise Him!
Praise ye the Lord!

2 Oh, praise the Lord, all ye nations!
Praise Him for His goodness;
For He saveth His people from all their sins,
And preserveth the souls of all who will trust Him;
Praise ye the Lord! [Refrain]

3 Oh, praise the Lord, all ye nations!
He is strong and mighty;
For He keepeth our steps that we shall not fall,
And delivers His saints from all their temptations;
Praise ye the Lord! [Refrain]

4 Oh, praise the Lord, all ye nations!
For His love unfailing;
He doth tenderly lead in the path of peace,
And His name is a refuge from the oppressor;
Praise ye the Lord! [Refrain]
