Give thanks unto the Lord; for He is good: for His mercy endureth for ever.@Psalm 136:1

Paraphrase of Psalm 136; author unknown.

Burnham Thomas Clark (1775-1859) (🔊 pdf nwc).

Praise God, for He is kind;
His mercy lasts for aye.
Give thanks with heart and mind
To God of gods alway.

Refrain

For certainly His mercies dure,
For certainly His mercies dure,
Most firm, most firm and sure eternally.

The Lord of lords praise ye,
Whose mercies still endure.
Great wonders only He
Doth work by His great pow’r.

Refrain

Which God omnipotent,
By might and wisdom high,
The Heav’n and firmament
Did frame, as we may see.

Refrain

To Him who did outstretch
This earth so great and wide,
Above the waters’ reach
Making it to abide.
