O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;

For His mercy endureth forever. 

God of all gods, who are only falsehood;

For His mercy endureth forever. 

O give thanks to the Lord of all earthly lords;

For His mercy endureth forever. 

To the One Who alone doth great things afford;

For His mercy endureth forever. 

To the One that by wisdom the heavens did make;

For His mercy endureth forever. 

To Him Who stretched earth o’re the water’s deep wake;

For His mercy endureth forever. 

To the One Who great lights made to guide mankind’s way;

For His mercy endureth forever. 

Made the sun to rule during earth’s long day;

For His mercy endureth forever. 

Made the moon and the stars to rule ’till the morn;

For His mercy endureth forever. 

To the One Who smote Egypt, took all their firstborn;

For His mercy endureth forever. 

To the One Who brought Israel out free from all harm;

For His mercy endureth forever. 

Delivered with strong hand, and with stretched-out arm;

For His mercy endureth forever. 

Before Him, the Red Sea into parts quickly rushed;

For His mercy endureth forever. 

And He made all Israel to pass through untouched; 

For His mercy endureth forever. 

But overthrew Pharaoh and his avarice;

For His mercy endureth forever. 

Then led He His people through the harsh wilderness; 

For His mercy endureth forever. 

Smote kings, though great and famous men;

For His mercy endureth forever. 

Og of Bashan and Sichon of Ammon; 

For His mercy endureth forever. 

Giving their land for an heritage fair;

For His mercy endureth forever. 

Even for Israel His servant gave there;

For His mercy endureth forever. 

Who remembered us in our lowest estate;

For His mercy endureth forever. 

And redeemed us from all our enemies great;

For His mercy endureth forever. 

To Him who grants food for all under the sky;

For His mercy endureth forever. 

O give thanks to the God of heaven most high;

For His mercy endureth forever.
