1Let us with a gladsome mind
Praise the Lord, for He is kind,
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure. 
2Let us blaze His Name abroad,
For of gods He is the God,
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.
3O let us His praises tell,
Who doth wrathful tyrants quell,
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.
4Who with miracles doth make
Heaven and earth amazed to shake,
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.
5He with all-commanding might,
Filled the new-made world with light,
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.
6Caused the golden-tressèd sun
All day long his course to run,
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.
7And the moon to shine by night,
’Mong her spangled sisters bright,
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.
8He, with thunder-clasping hand,
Smote the first of Egypt’s land,
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.
9And, despite of Pharaoh fell,
Brought from hence His Israel,
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.
10All things living He doth feed:
His full hand supplies their need;
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.
11Let us, therefore, warble forth
His great majesty and worth;
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.
12Who His mansion hath on high,
Passing reach of mortal eye;
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.
