To Render Thanks Unto The Lord


To render thanks unto our God
it is a comely thing;
and to your name, O God most high,
due praise aloud to sing.

Your loving-kindness to show forth
when shines the morning light;
and to declare your faithfulness
with pleasure every night,

upon a ten-stringed instrument,
upon the psaltery,
and on the harp with solemn sound,
and grave sweet melody.

For you, God, by your mighty works
have made my heart so glad;
and I will triumph in the works
which by your hands were made.

Those that within the house of God
are planted by your grace,
they shall grow up, and flourish all
within your holy place.
