Thank and praise Jehovah's name

Full Text

1. Thank and praise Jehovah’s name;
For His mercies, firm and sure,
From eternity the same
To eternity endure.

2. Let the ransomed thus rejoice,
Gathered out of every land,
As the people of His choice,
Plucked from the destroyer’s hand.

3. Let the elders praise the Lord,
Him let all the people praise,
When they meet with one accord,
In His courts on holy days.

4. Praise Him, ye who know His love;
Praise Him from the depths beneath;
Praise Him in the heights above;
Praise your maker all that breathe.

5. For His truth and mercy stand,
Past, and present, and to be,
Like the years of His right hand—
Like His own eternity.
