PSALM 136

6,6,6,6,4,4,4,4

God's wonders of creation, providence, redemption of Israel, and salvation of his people.

248249

PAUSE.

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 heav'ns 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 Isr'el 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 heav'nly King;

And let the spacious earth

His works and glories sing.

Thy mercy, Lord,

Shall still endure;

And ever sure

Abides thy word.
