Thank and praise Jehovah's name;
For his mercies, firm and sure,
From eternity the same
To eternity endure.
2 Let the ransomed thus rejoice,
Gathered out of every land;
As the people of his choice,
Plucked from the destroyer's hand.
3 Praise him, ye who know his love;
Praise him from the depths beneath;
Praise him in the heights above;
Praise your Maker all that breathe.
4 For his truth and mercy stand,
Past, and present, and to be,
Like the years of his right hand --
Like his own eternity.
James Montgomery, 1822.
