Praise ye the Lord for he is good his me




Praise ye the Lord for he is good,
his mercy lasts alway;
Who can express his noble acts,
or all his praise display?


They blessèd are that judgment keep,
and justly do alway:
With favor of thy people, Lord,
remember me, I pray;


And with thy saving health, O Lord,
vouchsafe to visit me,
That I the great felicity
of thine elect may see;


And with thy people's joy I may
a joyful mind possess,
And may with thine inheritance
a cheerful heart express.


Both we and our forefathers all
have sinèd every one;
We have committed wickedness,
and very lewdly done.


The wonders great which thou, O Lord,
hast done in Egypt s land
Our fathers, though they saw them all,
yet did not understand:


Nor yet thy mercies manifold
did keep in memory;
But at the sea, yea, the Red Sea,
Rebelled ungratefully.


Nevertheless he savèd them
for honor of his Name;
That he might make his power known,
and spread abroad his fame.


The Red Sea he did then rebuke,
and forthwith it was dried;
As in the wilderness, so through
the deep he did them guide.


He saved them from the cruel hand
of their most spiteful foe,
And from their enemies he did
deliver them also.
