O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good, because His mercy endureth forever.@Psalm 118:1

Shaker Hymnal (East Canterbury, New Hampshire: The Canterbury Shakers, 1906) (­čöŐ pdf nwc).

O give thanks, give thanks unto the Lord,
For He is good, and His mercy endureth forever.
To Him which led His people through the wilderness,
For He is good, and His mercy endureth forever.
He turn├Ęd the wilderness into a standing water,
And dry ground into water springs.
Strengthen ye the weak hands and confirm the feeble knees,
Say to them that are of a fearful heart,
Be strong, fear not, behold your God will come with a recompense.
Then shall the eyes of the blind be opened
And the ears of the deaf, of the deaf unstopp├Ęd.
And a highway shall be there,
And it shall be call├Ęd the way, the way of holiness,
The unclean shall not pass over it,
The unclean shall not pass over it,
But the redeem├Ęd of the Lord shall walk therein;
And the ransomed of the Lord shall return and come to Zion,
To Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads,
They shall obtain joy and gladness,
And sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
