92. Psalm 136

1 Praise God, for he is kind:
his mercy lasts for aye.
Give thanks with heart and mind
to God of gods alway:

[Refrain:]
For certainly
his mercies dure
most firm and sure
eternally.

2 The Lord of lords praise ye,
whose mercies still endure.
Great wonders only he
Doth work by his great power: [Refrain]

3 Give praise to his great name,
who, by his wisdom high,
the heaven above did frame,
and built the lofty sky: [Refrain]

4 Who hath remembered us
when in our low estate;
and hath delivered us
from foes who did us hate: [Refrain]

5 Who to all flesh gives food;
for his grace faileth never.
Give thanks to God most good,
the God of heaven, for ever: [Refrain]
