1 Praise ye the Lord: with my whole heart
the Lord’s praise I'll declare,
where the assemblies of the just
and congregations are.
2 The doings of Jehovah are
exceeding great in might;
sought out they are of every one
that doth therein delight.

3 His work most honourable is,
most glorious and pure,
and his untainted righteousness
for ever doth endure.
4 His works most wondrous he hath made
remembered still to be,
the Lord is most compassionate,
and merciful is he.

5 He giveth meat unto all those
that truly do him fear;
and evermore his covenant
he in his mind will bear.
6 He did the power of his works
unto his people show,
when he the heathen’s heritage
upon them did bestow.
7 His hand's works all are truth and right,
all his commands are sure:
8 and, done in truth and uprightness,
they evermore endure.
9 He sent redemption to his folk,
his covenant set for aye:
holy and reverend is his name
to be adored alway.

10 Wisdom’s beginning is God’s fear:
and wise in heart are they
who his most holy precepts keep:
his praise endures for aye.
