O praise ye the Lord, pre­pare your glad voice,
His praise in the great as­sem­bly to sing;
In their great cre­at­or let Is­ra­el re­joice,
And child­ren of Zi­on be glad in their king.

Let them His great name ex­tol in their songs,
With hearts well at­tuned His prais­es ex­press;
Who always takes plea­sure to hear their glad tongues,
And waits with sal­va­tion the hum­ble to bless.

With glo­ry adorned, His people shall sing
To God, who their heads with safe­ty doth shield;
Such hon­or and tri­umph His fa­vor shall bring,
O there­fore for ev­er all praise to Him yield!
