1 Sing HALLELUJAH! praise the LORD
I will with all my mind,
Where upright ones in private meet,
and are in publick join'd.
2 JEHOVAH's works are wondrous great,
and show his boundless might;
And are sought out by ev'ry soul,
who views them with delight.
3 His work is glorious majesty,
and comely honour is;
And to perpetual ages stands
that righteousness of his.
4 His works most marvellous He made
still to be kept in mind:
Full of compassion is the LORD,
most merciful and kind.
5 A portion of fit food He gives
to all who fear his name;
And ever will He bear in mind
his covenant with them.
6 He of his work the mighty pow'r
did to his people show,
In that the heathens heritage
He did on them bestow.
7 Unshaken truth and judgment are
the working of his hands,
Sure ail his threatnings, promises,
and sure all his commands,
8 They firmly are established
And are fulfill'd and perfected
in truth and equity.
9 He to his flock redemption sent:
that covenant of his
For ever He ordain':: his name
holy and rev'rend is.
10 The LORD's fear the beginning is
of wisdom: they are wise
Who do his will: and evermore
endures highest praise.
