1Let us with a gladsome mind
Praise the Lord, for He is kind;
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.
2He, with all-commanding might,
Filled the new-made world with light:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.
3He the golden-tressèd sun
Caused all day his course to run;
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.
4And the moon to shine by night
’Mong her spangled sisters bright:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.
5All things living He doth feed,
His full hand supplies their need:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.
6Let us then with gladsome mind
Praise the Lord, for He is kind:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure. Amen.
