O Praise the Lord, for He Is Good

  1. O praise the Lord, for he is good,
    give thanks and bless his name;
    his lovingkindness changes not,
    from age to age the same.
  2. What tongue can tell his mighty deeds,
    his wondrous works and ways?
    O who can show his glory forth,
    or utter all his praise?
  3. The Lord will bless and prosper those—
    yea, blest indeed are they—
    whose ways are just, who constantly
    his righteous laws obey.
  4. O Lord, remember me in grace,
    let me salvation see;
    the grace you show unto your saints,
    that grace reveal to me.
  5. Let me behold your people’s good
    and in their joy rejoice;
    with your triumphant heritage
    let me lift up my voice.
  6. In evil we have gone astray,
    and sinful is our race;
    rebelliously our fathers walked
    forgetful of your grace.
  7. Though they rebelled, yet for their help
    in saving strength he came
    to make his pow’r almighty known
    and glorify his name.
  8. He brought them safely through the sea
    and overwhelmed their foes;
    their faith was stirred, and for the time
    their songs of praise arose.
  9. Forgetful soon, they tempted God,
    nor for his counsel cared;
    he sent them leanness in their souls,
    while they earth’s bounties shared.
  10. Their God and Savior they forgot,
    their helper and their stay,
    but Moses sought the promised grace
    and turned God’s wrath away.
  11. But they despised the pleasant land,
    the promised land of God,
    and tempted him to make them fall
    and scatter them abroad.
  12. Against his own inheritance
    the Lord’s great wrath arose;
    his chosen people he condemned
    to serve their heathen foes.
  13. Save us, O Lord, our gracious God,
    from alien lands reclaim,
    that we may triumph in your praise
    and bless your holy name.
  14. Blest be the Lord, our covenant God,
    all praise to him accord;
    let all the people say, “Amen!”
    Forever praise the Lord.
