3 Give praise unto the Lord of lords;
for his mercy, &c.
4 Who only doth great wondrous works;
for his mercy, &c.
5 Who by his wisdom made the heavens;
for his mercy, &c.
6 Who on the waters stretched the earth;
for his mercy, &c.
7 Who made great lights to shine abroad;
for his mercy, &c.
8 The sun to rule the lightsome day;
for his mercy, &c.
9 The moon and stars to rule the night;
for his mercy, &c.
10 Who Egypt smote with the first-born;
for his mercy, &c.
11 And Israel brought out from thence;
for his mercy, &c.
12 With mighty hand and out-stretched arm;
for his mercy, &c.
13 Who cut the Red Sea in two parts;
for his mercy, &c.
14 And Israel made to pass through;
for his mercy, &c.
15 And drowned Pharaoh and his host;
for his mercy, &c.

for his mercy, &c.
17 Who did smite great and noble kings;
for his mercy, &c.
18 Yea, and also slew mighty kings;

19 Sehon king of the Amorltes;
for his mercy, &c,
20 And Og the king of Basan land;
for his mercy, &c.
21 And gave their land for heritage;
for his mercy, &c.
22 Even to his servant Israel;
for his mercy, &c.
23 Rememb'ring us in Iow estate;
for his mercy, &c.
24 And from oppressors rescued us;
for his mercy, &c.
25 Who giveth food unto all flesh;
for his mercy, &c.
26 Praise ye the Lord of heav'n above;
for his mercy, &c.
27 Give thanks unto the Lord of lords;
for his mercy endureth forever.
