Representative Text

1 Oh, praise the Lord! for he is good;
In him we rest obtain:
His mercy has through ages stood,
And ever shall remain.

2 Let all the people of the Lord
His praises spread around;
Let them his grace and love record,
Who have salvation found.

3 Now let the east in him rejoice,
The west its tribute bring,
The north and south lift up their voice,
In honor of their King.

4 Oh, praise the Lord! for he is good;
In him we rest obtain:
His mercy has through ages stood,
And ever shall remain.
