1 I will extol you, O my God,
and praise you, O my King;
yes, every day and evermore
your praises I will sing.
Great is the Lord, our mighty God,
and greatly to be praised;
his greatness is unsearchable,
above all glory raised.
2 Each generation to the next
shall testimony bear,
and to your praise, from age to age,
your wondrous acts declare.
Upon your glorious majesty
and honor I will dwell,
and all your grand and glorious works
and greatness I will tell.
3 Your mighty acts and glorious deeds
we shall with awe confess
and sing of your great goodness and
your perfect righteousness.
Most gracious and compassionate
is God, who reigns above;
his wrath is ever slow to rise,
unbounded is his love.
Psalter Hymnal, 1987
st. 1 = Ps. 145:1-3
st. 2 = Ps. 145:4-6

Based on Psalm 145: 1-8, "I Will Extol You" is reprinted, with a few alterations, from the 1912 Psalter. This part of the psalm centers on the well-known Hebrew confession "God is great, God is good!" See PHH 145 for further commentary on Psalm 145.
