CAMBRIDGE NEW | Bible Passage
JOHN RANDALL, 1715-1799
1 l'LL thee extol, my God, O King;
I'll bless thy name always.
2 Thee will I bless each day, and will
Thy name for ever praise.
3 Great is the Lord, much to be praised;
His greatness search exceeds.
4 Race unto race shall praise thy works,
And show thy mighty deeds.
5 I of thy glorious majesty
The honour will record;
I'll speak of all thy mighty works,
Which wondrous are, O Lord.
6 Men of thine acts the might shall show,
Thine acts that dreadful are;
And I, thy glory to advance,
Thy greatness will declare.
7 The memory of thy goodness great
They largely shall express;
With songs of praise they shall extol
Thy perfect righteousness.
8 Jehovah very gracious is,
In him compassions flow;
In mercy he is very great,
And is to anger slow.
9 The Lord most bountiful extends
His goodness unto all:
And over all that he hath made
His tender mercies fall.
10 Thee all thy works shall praise, O Lord,
And thee thy saints shall bless;
11 They shall thy kingdom's glory show,
Thy power by speech express:
12 To make the sons of men to know
His acts done mightily,
And of his kingdom excellent
The glorious majesty.
13 Thy kingdom shall endure for aye,
Thy reign through ages all.
14 God raiseth all that are bowed down,
Upholdeth all that fall.
15 The eyes of all things wait on thee,
The giver of all good;
And thou in time convenient dost
Bestow on them their food.
16 Thy bounteous hand thou openest,
And dost in kindness give
Enough to satisfy the wants
Of all on earth that live.
17 The Lord is just in ali his ways,
Holy in his works all.
18 He's near to all that call on him,
In truth that on him call.
19 He will accomplish the desire
Of those that do him fear:
He also will deliver them,
And he their cry will hear.
20 The Lord preserves all who him love,
That nought can them annoy:
But he all those that wicked are
Will utterly destroy.
21 My mouth the praises of the Lord
Shall constantly proclaim;
And let all flesh for ever give
Praise to his holy name.
1 ¬∂ I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.
2 Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.
3 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.
4 One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.
5 I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works.
6 And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and I will declare thy greatness.
7 They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness.
8 The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.
9 The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.
10 ¬∂ All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD; and thy saints shall bless thee.
11 They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power;
12 To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom.
13 Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.
14 The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down.
15 The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season.
16 Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.
17 The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works.
18 The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.
19 He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.
20 The LORD preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy.
21 My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.
