Give thanks unto the Lord our God for




Give thanks unto the Lord our God,
for very kind is he;
And that his mercy hath no end
all mortal men may see.


Such as the Lord redeemèd hath
with thanks shall praise his Name
And show how they from foes were freed
And how he wrought the same.


He gathered them forth of the lands
that lay so far about;
From east to west, from north to south
his hand did find them out.


They wandered in the wilderness,
and strayèd from the way,
Finding no city where to dwell,
that might serve for their stay:


Whose thirst and hunger was so great
within those deserts void,
That faintness them assaulted, and
their souls greatly annoyed.


Then did they cry in their distress
unto the Lord for aid,
Who did remove their troublous state,
according as they prayed.


And by the way which was most right
he led them like a guide;
That they might to their city go,
and safely there abide.


Let men therefore before the Lord
confess his goodness then,
And show the wonders that he does
before the sons of men.


For he their empty souls sustained
whom thirst had made to faint;
Their hungry souls with goodness fed,
and heard their sad complaint.


Such as do dwell in darkness deep,
where they on death do wait,
Fast bound to bear such grievous pains,
as iron chains do threat;
