O Praise our God, ye People,
 and make the voice of his praise to be heard.
who holdeth our soul in life,
and Suffereth not our feet to slip;
For thou O God hast proved us,
thou also hast tried us like as silver is tried,
to be heard,
O come hither and hearken,
all ye that fear God;
and I will tell you what he hath done for my soul.
God hath heard me,
and consider'd the voice of my prayer,
Praised be God,
who hath not cast out my pray'r,
nor turned his mercy from me.
