Give Thanks unto the Lord, Jehovah

  1. Give thanks unto the Lord, Jehovah,
    For he is good, O praise his Name!
    Let Israel say: “The Lord be praised,
    His mercy ever is the same.”
    Let Aaron’s house now praise Jehovah;
    The Lord is good, O praise his Name;
    Let all that fear the Lord extol him,
    His mercy ever is the same.

  2. In a large place the Lord hath set me,
    In my distress he heard my cry;
    I will not fear; the Lord is with me–
    What can man do, when God is nigh?
    The Lord is chief among my helpers;
    And I shall see my foes o’erthrown:
    Far better than in man or princes,
    My trust I place in God alone.

  3. I shall not die, but live, declaring
    The works of God, who tried me sore,
    And chastened me; but in his mercy
    Not unto death has giv’n me o’er.
    The gates of righteousness set open,
    The gate of God! I’ll enter in
    To praise you, Lord, who pray’r have answered,
    And saved me from all my sin.

  4. The stone—-O Lord, it is thy doing—-
    The stone, the builders did despise,
    Is made the headstone of the corner,
    And it is marv’lous in our eyes.
    This is the day, of days most glorious,
    The Lord hath made; we’ll joy and sing:
    Send now prosperity, we pray, Lord;
    And, O our God, salvation bring!
