1O praise ye the Lord! Prepare your glad voice,
His praise in the great assembly to sing:
In their great Creator let Israel rejoice;
And children of Sion be glad in their King.
2Let them His great Name extol in their songs,
With hearts well atuned His praises express;
Who always takes pleasure to hear their glad tongues,
And waits with salvation the humble to bless.
3With glory adorned, His people shall sing
To God, Who their heads with safety doth shield;
Such honor and triumph His favor shall bring:
O therefore forever, all praise to Him yield! Amen.
