I give thanks to God with everything I’ve got—
Wherever good people gather, and in the congregation.
God’s works are so great, worth
A lifetime of study—endless enjoyment!
Splendor and beauty mark his craft;
His generosity never gives out.
His miracles are his memorial—
This God of Grace, this God of Love.
He gave food to those who fear him,
He remembered to keep his ancient promise.
He proved to his people that he could do what he said:
Hand them the nations on a platter—a gift!
He manufactures truth and justice;
All his products are guaranteed to last—
Never out-of-date, never obsolete, rust-proof.
All that he makes and does is honest and true:
He paid the ransom for his people,
He ordered his Covenant kept forever.
He’s so personal and holy, worthy of our respect.
The good life begins in the fear of God—
Do that and you’ll know the blessing of God.
His Hallelujah lasts forever!
The Lord Praised for His Goodness.
1[a]Praise [b]the Lord!
I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart,
In the company of the upright and in the assembly.
2 Great are the works of the Lord;
They are [c]studied by all who delight in them.
3 [d]Splendid and majestic is His work,
And His righteousness endures forever.
4 He has made His [e]wonders [f]to be remembered;
The Lord is gracious and compassionate.
5 He has given [g]food to those who [h]fear Him;
He will remember His covenant forever.
6 He has made known to His people the power of His works,
In giving them the heritage of the nations.
7 The works of His hands are [i]truth and justice;
All His precepts are [j]sure.
8 They are upheld forever and ever;
They are performed in [k]truth and uprightness.
9 He has sent redemption to His people;
He has [l]ordained His covenant forever;
Holy and [m]awesome is His name.
10 The [n]fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
A good understanding have all those who [o]do His commandments;
His praise endures forever.
