The Lord praise, praise Jehovah

The Lord praise, praise Jehovah

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 The Lord praise, praise Jehovah's name,
Jehovah's servants praise him ye.
2 Who in the Lord's house stand, the same
Who in courts of our God's house be.
3 The Lord praise for the Lord is good
For it's sweet to his name to sing.
4 For Jacob to him chose hath God,
And Isra'l for his precious thing.
5 For that the Lord is great I know,
And over all gods our Lord keeps.

6 What he doth will, the Lord doth do
In heav'n, earth, seas, and in all deeps.
7 For vapours he a course doth take,
That they from ends of th' earth should rise,
He for the rain doth lightning make,
And wind brings from his treasuries.

8 Firft-born of Egypt smite did he,
Of mankind and of beast also.
9 O Egypt, wonders sent midst thee,
On Pharaoh, and his servants too.
10 Who smote great nations, slew great kings,
11 Slew Sihon king of th' Amorites,
Og also, one of Bashan's kings,
All kingdoms of the Cana'nites.

12 And gave their land an heritage
His people Isra'ls lot to fall.
13 For aye thy name, Lord, thro' each age,
O Lord, is thy memorial.
14 The Lord his people judge will he.
And of his servants he'll take care.
15 The heathens idols silver be,
And gold, mens hand did them prepare.

16 Mouths have they, yet they never speak;
Eyes have they, but they do not see;
17 Ears have they but no hearing have
And in their mouths no breathings be,
18 They that them make, alike them be,
That trust in them so each one is.
19 O Isra'ls house the Lord bless ye.
Thou Aaron's house Jehovah bless.

20 O house of Levi bless the Lord.
Who fear the Lord, him bless let them;
From Sion blessed be the Lord
Who dwelleth at Jerusalem. Hallelujah
