Behold now give heede such as be
the Lord's servants faithfull and true:
come praise the Lord every degree
with such songs as to him are due.

O ye that stand in the Lord's house,
even in our own God mansion:
praise ye the Lord so bouteous,
which worth our salvation.

Lift up your hands in his holy place,
yea, and that in the time of night:
praise ye the Lord which giveth al grace
for he is a Lord of great might.

Then shall the Lord out of Sion,
which made heav'n and earth by his power:
give to you and your nation
his blessing, mercy and favor.
