1 O sing ye HALLELUJAH now,
And praise JEHOVAH's holy name;
O all ye servants of the LORD,
His praises all abroad proclaim.
2 Ye who within the house do stand,
Wherein the LORD has his abode;
And in the court-yards of his house,
Who is by covenant our God.

3 Sing HALLELUJAH; for the LORD
Is good: sing praises to his name;
For it is sweet to be employ'd
His praife in singing to proclaim.
4 For the eternal JAH hath chose,
Jacob for his propriety;
And his peculiar treasure hath,
He taken Israel to be.

5 For well we know, the LORD is great,
And that this sov'reign Lord of ours
Transcends all that are called GODS,
And reigns o'er all created pow'rs.
6 In heaven and earth the LORD hath done,
Whatever his own mind did please;
In the deep caverns of the earth,
And in the great and swelling seas.

7 From the wide surface of the earth
He makes the vapours to arise;
He makes the lightning for the rain,
And winds brings from his treasuries.

[2 Part]
8 Egypt's first born, both man and beast
9 He slew: and wondrous tokens He
On Pharaoh and his servants sent,
O Egypt in the midst of thee.
10 Great nations smote, great kings he slew,
11 Sihon, who was of Heshhbon king,
And Og of Bashan; and to nought
All Canaan's kingdoms he did bring.

12 And gave their land an heritage,
To his own people Israel.
13 O LORD, eternal is thy name,
LORD, endless thy memorial.
14 JEHOVAH will his people judge,
And for his servants turn again.
15 The heathen idols silver are
And gold; the handy work of men.

16 Mouths have they, yet they cannot speak;
And they have eyes, but never saw;
17 Ears have they, yet they nothing hear;
Their mouths no breath can ever draw.
18 Such senseless flocks are they themselves,
Who did these senseless idols frame;
And such are all who to them pray,
And put their confidence in them.

19 O house of Isr'el bless the LORD:
The LORD bless - who of Aaron's are:
20 The LORD, O house of Levi bless:
The LORD bless ye, the LORD who fear.
21 From Zion-hill his sacred seat,
O let JEHOVAH blessed be;
Who dwells within Jerusalem:
O sing, sing HALLELUJAH ye.
