O sing unto the Lord with thanksgiving;
Sing praises upon the harp unto our God.
Great is our Lord, and great is his pow'r;
yea, and his wisdom is infinite.
The Lord setteth up the meek,
and bringeth the ungodly down to the ground.
The Lord delighteth in them that fear him,
and put their trust in his mercy.
Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem;
Praise thy God, O Sion.
