Psalm 136.

61

Milton.

Let us with a joyful mind

Praise the Lord, for he is kind;

For his mercies shall endure,

Ever faithful, ever sure.

Let us sound his name abroad,

For of gods he is the God

Who by wisdom did create

Heaven’s expanse and all its state;

2 Did the solid earth ordain

How to rise above the main;

Who, by his commanding might,

Filled the new-made world with light;

Caused the golden-tresséd sun

All the day his course to run;

And the moon to shine by night,

’Mid her spangled sisters bright.

3 All his creatures God doth feed,

His full hand supplies their need;

Let us therefore warble forth

His high majesty and worth.

He his mansion hath on high,

’Bove the reach of mortal eye;

And his mercies shall endure,

Ever faithful, ever sure.
