1 THe Lord praise, praise ye the Lords Name:
the Lords servants o praise him ye.
2 That in the Lords house stand: the same
i'th Courts of our Gods house who be.
3 The Lords praise, for the Lord is good:
for sweet its to his Name to sing.
4 For Jacob to him chose hath God:
and Isr’el for his precious thing.
5 For that the Lord is great I know:
and over all gods, our Lord keeps.
6 All that he wills, the Lord doth do:
in heav’n, earth, seas, and all deeps.
7 The vapours he doth them constrain,
forth from the ends of th’ earth to rise;
he maketh lightning for the rain:
the wind brings from his treasuries,
8 Of Egypt he the first borne smite:
and that of man, of beasts also.
9 Sent wondrous signs midst thee, Egypt:
on Pharaoh, on all’s servants too.
10 Who smote great nations, slew great Kings:
11 Slew Sihon King of th’ Amorites,
Og also one of Bashans kings:
all kingdoms of the Canaanites,
12 And gave their land an heritage:
his people Isr’ell’s lot to fall.
13 For aye thy Name, Lord, through each age
o Lord, is thy memorial.
14 For his folks judge, the Lord is he:
and of his servants he’ll repent.
15 The heathens Idols silver be,
and gold: men’s hands did them invent.
16 Mouths have they, yet they never spake:
eyes have they, but they do’e not see:
17 Ears have they, but no hearing take:
and in their mouth no breathings be.
18 They that them make, have their likeness:
that trust in them so is each one.
19 The Lord o house of Isr’el bless;
the Lord bless, thou house of Aaron.
20 O house of Levi, bless the Lord:
who fear the Lord, bless ye the Lord.
21 From Sion blessed be the Lord;
who dwells at Salem praise the Lord.
