To God the mighty Lord,
Your joyful thanks repeat.
To Him due praise afford
As good as He is great;
For God does prove
Our constant friend,
His boundless love
Shall never end.

To him whose wondrous power,
All other gods obey.
Whom earthly kings adore.
This grateful homage pay:
For God does prove
Our constant friend,
His boundless love
Shall never end.

By his Almighty hand
Amazing works are wrought;
The heavens by his command
Were to perfection brought.
For God does prove
Our constant friend,
His boundless love
Shall never end.

He spread the oceans round
About the spacious Land;
And made the rising ground
Above the waters stand.
For God does prove
Our constant friend,
His boundless love
Shall never end.

 

Through heaven he did display
His numerous hosts of light:
The Sun to rule by day,
The moon and stars by night.
For God does prove
Our constant friend,
His boundless love
Shall never end.

He struck the first-born dead
Of Egypt's stubborn land;
And thence his people led
With his resistless hand,
For God does prove
Our constant friend,
His boundless love
Shall never end.

By him the raging sea,
As if in pieces rent,
Disclosed a middle way
Through which his people went.
For God does prove
Our constant friend,
His boundless love
Shall never end.

Where soon he overthrew
Proud Pharaoh and his host,
Who daring to pursue,
Were in the billows lost.
For God does prove
Our constant friend,
His boundless love
Shall never end.

 

Through deserts vast and wild
He led the chosen seed,
And famous princes foiled.
And made great monarchs bleed.
For God does prove
Our constant friend,
His boundless love
Shall never end.

Sion, whose potent hand
Great Ammon's scepter swayed.
And Og, whose stern command
Rich Bashan's land obeyed.
For God does prove
Our constant friend,
His boundless love
Shall never end.

And of his wondrous grace,
Their lands, whom he destroyed.
He gave to Israel's race,
To be by them enjoyed.
For God does prove
Our constant friend,
His boundless love
Shall never end.

He in our depth of woes
On us with favor thought,
And from our cruel foes
In peace and safety brought.
For God does prove
Our constant friend,
His boundless love
Shall never end.

 

He does the food supply
On which all creatures live:
To God who reigns on high
Eternal praises give.
For God does prove
Our constant friend,
His boundless love
Shall never end.

(PART 1) C. M.
Give thanks to God the sovereign Lord;
His mercies still endure;
And be the King of kings adored;
His truth is ever sure.

What wonders hath his wisdom done!
How mighty is his hand!
Heaven, earth, and sea, he framed alone;
How wide is his command!

The sun supplies the day with light;
How bright his counsels shine!
The moon and stars adorn the night;
His works are all divine.

He struck the sons of Egypt dead;
How dreadful is his rod!
And thence with joy his people led;
How gracious is our God!

He cleft the swelling sea in two;
His arm is great in might;
And gave the tribes a passage through;
His power and grace unite.

But Pharaoh's army there he drowned;
How glorious are his ways!
And brought his saints through desert ground;
Eternal be his praise!

Great monarchs fell beneath his hand;
Victorious is his sword;
While Israel took the promised land;
And faithful is his word.

He saw the nations dead in sin;
He felt his pity move:
How sad the state the world was in!
How boundless was his love!

He sent to save us from our woe;
His goodness never fails;
From death, and hell, and every foe;
And still his grace prevails.

Give thanks to God the heavenly King;
His mercies still endure:
Let the whole earth his praises sing;
His truth is ever sure.

 

(PART 2) 66.66.44.44.
Give thanks to God most high,
The universal Lord,
The sovereign King of kings;
And be his grace adored.
His power and grace
Are still the same;
And let his name
Have endless praise.

How mighty is his hand!
What wonders hath he done!
He formed the earth and seas,
And spread the heavens alone.
Thy mercy, Lord,
Shall still endure;
And ever sure
Abides thy word.

His wisdom framed the sun
To crown the day with light;
The moon and twinkling stars
To cheer the darksome night.
His power and grace
Are still the same;
And let his name
Have endless praise.

He smote the first-born sons,
The flower of Egypt, dead;
And thence his chosen tribes
With joy and glory led.
Thy mercy, Lord,
Shall still endure;
And ever sure
Abides thy word.

His power and lifted rod
Cleft the Red Sea in two;
And for his people made
A wondrous passage through.
His power and grace
Are still the same;
And let his name
Have endless praise.

But cruel Pharaoh there,
With all his host, he drowned;
And brought his Israel safe
Through a long desert ground.
Thy mercy, Lord,
Shall still endure;
And ever sure
Abides thy word.

The kings of Canaan fell
Beneath his dreadful hand;
While his own servants took
Possession of their land.
His power and grace
Are still the same;
And let his name
Have endless praise.

He saw the nations lie
All perishing in sin,
And pitied the sad state
The ruined world was in.
Thy mercy, Lord,
Shall still endure;
And ever sure
Abides thy word.

He sent his only Son
To save us from our woe,
From Satan, sin, and death,
And every hurtful foe.
His power and grace
Are still the same;
And let his name
Have endless praise.

Give thanks aloud to God,
To God the heavenly King;
And let the spacious earth
His works and glories sing.
Thy mercy, Lord,
Shall still endure;
And ever sure
Abides thy word.

 

(PART 3, "Abridged") L. M.
Give to our God immortal praise;
Mercy and truth are all his ways:
Wonders of grace to God belong,
Repeat his mercies in your song.

Give to the Lord of lords renown,
The King of kings with glory crown:
His mercies ever shall endure,
When lords and kings are known no more.

He built the earth, he spread the sky,
And fixed the starry lights on high:
Wonders of grace to God belong,
Repeat his mercies in your song.

He fills the sun with morning light;
He bids the moon direct the night:
His mercies ever shall endure,
When suns and moons shall shine no more.

The Jews he freed from Pharaoh's hand,
And brought them to the promised land
Wonders of grace to God belong,
Repeat his mercies in your song.

He saw the Gentiles dead in sin,
And felt his pity work within
His mercies ever shall endure,
When death and sin shall reign no more.

He sent his Son with power to save
From guilt, and darkness, and the grave
Wonders of grace to God belong,
Repeat his mercies in your song.

Through this vain world he guides our feet,
And leads us to his heavenly seat
His mercies ever shall endure,
When this vain world shall be no more.
