Praise Jehovah for His love,
God of gods, enthroned above;
Praise the mighty King of kings,
Who alone doth wondrous things;
For His mercy doth endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

God by wisdom framed the skies,
Made the earth from ocean rise,
Gave the sun by day for light,
Moon and stars to rule the night;
For His mercy doth endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

He made Egypt’s greatness vain,
Caused their first-born to be slain,
Brought forth Israel from their land,
Stretching out His mighty hand;
For His mercy doth endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

God the sea asunder clave,
Brought His people through the wave,
Drowned their foes beneath the deep,
Through the desert led His sheep;
For His mercy doth endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

Mighty kings of mighty name
He destroyed and put to shame,
Made their land a heritage
For His saints from age to age;
For His mercy doth endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

God remembered all our woe,
Rescued us from every foe,
Food to all doth He supply,
Praise the Lord enthroned on high;
For His mercy doth endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.
