447. Let Us with a Gladsome Mind

1. Let us with a gladsome mind
Praise the Lord, for He is kind:
For His mercies aye endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

2. Let us blaze His Name abroad,
For of gods He is the God:
For His mercies aye endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

3. He, with all-commanding might,
Filled the new-made world with light:
For His mercies aye endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

4. He the golden-tressed sun
Caused all day his course to run;
For His mercies aye endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

5. And the moon to shine by night,
'Mid her spangled sisters bright:
For His mercies aye endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

6. All things living He doth feed;
His full hand supplies their need:
For His mercies aye endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

7. Let us therefore warble forth
His high majesty and worth:
For His mercies aye endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.
