Thank and praise Jehovah's name

Representative Text

1 Thank and praise Jehovah's name;
For His mercies, firm and sure,
From eternity the same

2 Let the ransomed thus rejoice,
Gathered out of every land,
As the people of His choice,
Plucked from the destroyer's hand.

3 Praise Him, ye who know His love;
Praise Him from the depths beneath;
Praise Him in the heights above;
Praise your Maker, all that breathe.

4 For His truth and mercy stand,
Past, and present, and to be.
Like the years of His right hand,
Like His own eternity.

Amen.
