136. Let Us with a Gladsome Mind

1 Let us with a gladsome mind
praise the Lord, for he is kind:
for his mercies shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

2 Let us sound his name abroad,
for of gods he is the God:
for his mercies shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

3 He, with all-commanding might,
filled the new-made world with light;
for his mercies shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

4 All things living he doth feed;
his full hand supplies their need:
for his mercies shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

5 Let us then with gladsome mind
praise the Lord, for he is kind:
for his mercies shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.
