I will give thanks unto thee, O Lord,
with my whole heart:
Ev'n before the gods will I sing praises unto thee.
I will worship and praise thy Name,
because thou hast magnified thy Name,
and thy word above all things:
When I called upon thee,
thou heardest me,
and enduedst my soul with much strength.
For tho' the Lord be high,
yet hath he respect unto the lowly:
but beholdeth the proud afar off.
Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
yet shalt thou refresh me,
thou shalt stretch forth thy hands
upon the furiousness of mine enemies,
And thy right hand shall save me.
All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O Lord:
Yea, they shall sing that great is the Glory of the Lord,
A-men.
