O Praise the Lord praise ye his Name




O Praise the Lord, praise ye his Name,
praise him with one accord;
O praise him still, all ye that be
the servants of the Lord.


O praise him, ye that stand and be
in the house of the Lord;
Ye of his court and of his house,
praise him with one accord.


Praise ye the Lord, for he is good,
sing praises to his Name;
It is a good and pleasant thing
always to do the same.


For why? the Lord hath Jacob chose
his very own ye see;
So hath he chosen Israel
his treasure for to be.


For this I know and am right sure
the Lord is very great;
He is indeed above all gods,
most easy to entreat.


For whatsoever pleas-ed him,
all that full well he wrought
In heav'n, in earth, and in the sea,
which he hath made of naught.


He lifts the clouds above the earth,
he lightnings makes and rain;
He bringeth forth the winds also,
and nothing made in vain.


He smote the first, born of each thing
in Egypt that took rest;
He spared there no thing living,
the man, nor yet the beast.


He did likewise show wonders great
on their inhabitants,
Upon king Pharaoh, and also
on his severe servants.


He smote then many nations, and
did great and wondrous things;
He likewise slew the mightiest
and chiefest of their king.


Sehon king of the Amorites,
and Og king of Basan;
He slew also the kingdoms all
that were of Canaan;


And gave their land to Israel
an heritage to be,
To Israel his people, and
to their posterity.
