Give ye thanks to God the Lord for very




Give ye thanks to God the Lord,
for very kind is he;
Because his mercy doth endure
to all eternity.


Let Israel confess that his
mercy doth ever dure,
Let Aaron's house likewise confess,
his mercy is most sure.


Let all that fear the Lord our God
e'en now confess and say,
The mercy of the Lord our God
endureth still alway.


In trouble and in heaviness
unto the Lord I cried,
Who lovingly heard me at large,
my suit was not denied.


The Lord himself is on my side,
I will not stand in doubt,
Nor fear what man can do to me,
when God stands me about.


The Lord doth take my part with them
that help to succor me,
Therefore I shall see my desire
upon mine enemy.


Better it is to trust in God,
than in man's mortal seed;
Or to put confidence in kings
or princes in our need.


All nations have enclosèd me,
and compassed me round;
But in the Name of God shall I
my enemies confound.


They kept me in on ev'ry side,
and did me quite surround;
But in the Lord's most mighty Name
I cast them to the ground.


They came about me all like bees,
but in the Lord's great Name
I quenched their thorns that were on fire,
and did destroy the same.
