118a. To Jehovah hymn the lay

1 TO Jehovah hymn the lay,
"Ever shall His love endure."
O let grateful Israel say,
"Stands His love forever sure."

2 O let Aaron's house reply,
Evermore His love shall last."
All who fear Him, shout and cry,
"Stands His love forever fast."

3 On the ever-living name,
In distress on JAH I cried;
JAH to my deliverance came,
And my prison open'd wide.

4 See Jehovah near me stand!
What from mortals shall I dread?
See Jehovah lift the hand!
Victor on my foes I tread.

5 Hark! the voice of joy and song
Echoes from the faithful seed;
By His right hand firm and strong
He hath done a mighty deed.

6 High Jehovah's hand is rais'd
By the conquest he hath won.
Be Jehovah's right hand prais'd!
He a mighty deed hath done.
