Psalm 136

Second Version (6.6.6.6.8.8.)

6,6,6,6,8,8

1Praise God, for he is kind:

His mercy lasts for aye.

2Give thanks with heart and mind

To God of gods alway:

For certainly

His mercies dure

Most firm and sure

Eternally.

3The Lord of lords praise ye,

Whose mercies still endure.

4Great wonders only he

Doth work by his great pow’r

For certainly

His mercies dure

Most firm and sure

Eternally.

5Which God omnipotent,

By might and wisdom high,

The heav’n and firmament

Did frame, as we may see:

For certainly

His mercies dure

Most firm and sure

Eternally.

6To him who did outstretch

This earth so great and wide,

Above the waters’ reach

Making it to abide:

For certainly

His mercies dure

Most firm and sure

Eternally.

7Great lights he made to be;

For his grace lasteth aye:

8Such as the sun we see,

To rule the lightsome day:

For certainly

His mercies dure

Most firm and sure

Eternally.

9Also the moon so clear,

Which shineth in our sight;

The stars that do appear,

To guide the darksome night:

For certainly

His mercies dure

Most firm and sure

Eternally.

10To him that Egypt smote,

Who did his message scorn;

And in his anger hot

Did kill all their first-born:

For certainly

His mercies dure

Most firm and sure

Eternally.

11Thence Isr’el out he brought;

For his grace lasteth ever.

12With a strong hand he wrought,

And stretch’d-out arm deliver:

For certainly

His mercies dure

Most firm and sure

Eternally.

13The sea he cut in two;

For his grace lasteth still.

14And through its midst to go

Made his own Israel:

For certainly

His mercies dure

Most firm and sure

Eternally.

15But overwhelm’d and lost

Was proud king Pharaoh,

With all his mighty host,

And chariots there also:

For certainly

His mercies dure

Most firm and sure

Eternally.

16To him who pow’rfully

His chosen people led,

Ev’n through the desert dry,

And in that place them fed:

For certainly

His mercies dure

Most firm and sure

Eternally.

17To him great kings who smote;

For his grace hath no bound.

18Who slew, and spared not

Kings famous and renown’d:

For certainly

His mercies dure

Most firm and sure

Eternally.

19Sihon the Am’rites’ king;

For his grace lasteth ever:

20Og also, who did reign

The land of Bashan over:

For certainly

His mercies dure

Most firm and sure

Eternally.

21Their land by lot he gave;

For his grace faileth never,

22That Isr’el might it have

In heritage for ever:

For certainly

His mercies dure

Most firm and sure

Eternally.

23Who hath remembered

Us in our low estate;

24And us delivered

From foes which did us hate:

For certainly

His mercies dure

Most firm and sure

Eternally.

25Who to all flesh gives food;

For his grace faileth never.

26Give thanks to God most good,

The God of heav’n, for ever:

For certainly

His mercies dure

Most firm and sure

Eternally.
