1 Praise ye the Lord, Jehovah I
With all my heart will praise-:
In private meetings of th' upright,
And publick meeting-place.
2 The operations of the Lord
Exceeding are in might:
Sought out they are by all of those
Who have in them delight.
3 His work is glorious majesty,
And comely honour is:
And to perpetual ages stands
That righteousness of his.
4 To be remembred he hath made
His doings marvellous:
Full of compassion is the Lord,
And likewise gracious.
5 To them who fear him he doth give
Their meat as for a prey,
He in remembrance will retain
His covenant for aye.
6 He of his work the mighty pow'r
Did to his people show:
In that the heathen's heritage,
He did on them bestow.
7 Both verity and judgment are
The working of his hands:
Yea, very faithful also are
Each one of his commands.
8 They settled are in stableness
For ever and for aye:
Yea, perfected in verity,
And uprightness are they.
9 He to his folk redemption sent,
That covenant of his
For aye he hath ordain'd, his name
Holy and reverend is.
10 The Lord's fear the beginning is
Of wisdom: and all they
Who do his will, have prudence good,
His praise endures for aye.
