Praise God for He is kind




Praise God, for he is kind:
His mercy lasts for aye.
Give thanks with heart and mind
To God of gods alway:
For certainly His mercies dure
Most firm and sure Eternally.


The Lord of lords praise ye,
Whose mercies still endure.
Great wonders only he
Doth work by his great pow’r
For certainly His mercies dure
Most firm and sure Eternally.


Which God omnipotent,
By might and wisdom high,
The heav’n and firmament
Did frame, as we may see:
For certainly His mercies dure
Most firm and sure Eternally.


To him who did outstretch
This earth so great and wide,
Above the waters’ reach
Making it to abide:
For certainly His mercies dure
Most firm and sure Eternally.


Great lights he made to be;
For his grace lasteth aye:
Such as the sun we see,
To rule the lightsome day:
For certainly His mercies dure
Most firm and sure Eternally.


Also the moon so clear,
Which shineth in our sight;
The stars that do appear,
To guide the darksome night:
For certainly His mercies dure
Most firm and sure Eternally.


To him that Egypt smote,
Who did his message scorn;
And in his anger hot
Did kill all their first-born:
For certainly His mercies dure
Most firm and sure Eternally.


Thence Isr’el out he brought;
For his grace lasteth ever.
With a strong hand he wrought,
And stretch’d-out arm deliver:
For certainly His mercies dure
Most firm and sure Eternally.


The sea he cut in two;
For his grace lasteth still.
And through its midst to go
Made his own Israel:
For certainly His mercies dure
Most firm and sure Eternally.


But overwhelm’d and lost
Was proud king Pharaoh,
With all his mighty host,
And chariots there also:
For certainly His mercies dure
Most firm and sure Eternally.


To him who pow’rfully
His chosen people led,
Ev’n through the desert dry,
And in that place them fed:
For certainly His mercies dure
Most firm and sure Eternally.


To him great kings who smote;
For his grace hath no bound.
Who slew, and spared not
Kings famous and renown’d:
For certainly His mercies dure
Most firm and sure Eternally.


Sihon the Am’rites’ king;
For his grace lasteth ever:
Og also, who did reign
The land of Bashan over:
For certainly His mercies dure
Most firm and sure Eternally.


Their land by lot he gave;
For his grace faileth never,
That Isr’el might it have
In heritage for ever:
For certainly His mercies dure
Most firm and sure Eternally.


Who hath remembered
Us in our low estate;
And us delivered
From foes which did us hate:
For certainly His mercies dure
Most firm and sure Eternally.


Who to all flesh gives food;
For his grace faileth never.
Give thanks to God most good,
The God of heav’n, for ever:
For certainly His mercies dure
Most firm and sure Eternally.
