26b. Let us with a gladsome mind

1 Let us, with a gladsome mind
praise the LORD, for He is kind:

For His mercy shall 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 has caused the golden sun
all the day his course to run. [Refrain]

5 And the moon to shine by night
with her starry sisters bright. [Refrain]

6 All things living He can feed,
His full hand supplies their need. [Refrain]

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