Give thanks and bless His name;
His lov­ing­kind­ness chang­es not,
From age to age the same.


Praise ye the Lord, and give Him thanks,
For boun­ti­ful is He;
His ten­der mer­cy shall en­dure
To all eter­ni­ty.

The Lord will bless and pros­per those,
Yea, blest in­deed are they,
Whose ways are just, who cons­tant­ly
His right­eous law ob­ey.


Let me be­hold Thy peo­ple’s good
And in their joy re­joice;
With Thy tri­um­phant he­ri­tage
Let me lift up my voice.
