^1Praise ye the Lord: with my whole heart
I will God's praise declare,
Where the assemblies of the just
and congregations are.
^2The whole works of the Lord our God
are great above all measure,
Sought out they are of ev'ry one
that doth therein take pleasure.
^3His work most honourable is,
most glorious and pure,
And his untainted righteousness
for ever doth endure.
^4His works most wonderful he hath
made to be thought upon:
The Lord is gracious, and he is
full of compassion.
^5He giveth meat unto all those
that truly do him fear;
And evermore his covenant
he in his mind will bear.
^6He did the power of his works
unto his people show,
When he the heathen's heritage
upon them did bestow.
^7His handy-works are truth and right;
all his commands are sure:
^8And, done in truth and uprightness,
they evermore endure.
^9He sent redemption to his folk;
his covenant for aye
He did command: holy his name
and rev'rend is alway.
^10Wisdom's beginning is God's fear:
good understanding they
Have all that his commands fulfill:
his praise endures for aye.
