93b. Psalm 136

1 Let us, with a gladsome mind,
praise the Lord, for he is kind:

For his mercies aye endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

2 Let us blaze his name abroad,
for of gods he is the God: [Refrain]

3 He with all-commanding might
filled the new-made world with light: [Refrain]

4 He his chosen race did bless
in the wasteful wilderness: [Refrain]

5 All things living he doth feed,
his full hand supplies their need: [Refrain]

6 Let us then with gladsome mind,
praise the Lord, for he is kind: [Refrain]
