9B. Wholehearted Thanksgiving

1 Wholehearted thanksgiving to thee I will bring,
in praise of thy marvelous deeds I will sing;
in thee I will joy and exultingly cry,
thy name I will praise, O Jehovah Most High.

Refrain:
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the earth hear his voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the people rejoice!
O come to Jehovah, declare ye his fame,
and give him all honor, for just is his name.

2 Thou Lord, art a refuge for all the oppressed;
all trust thee who know thee, and trusting are blest;
for never, O Lord, did thy mercy forsake
the soul that has sought of thy grace to partake. [Refrain]

3 Give praise to Jehovah, the mighty deeds tell
of him who has chosen in Zion to dwell,
of him to whom justice and vengeance belong,
who visits the lowly and overthrows wrong. [Refrain]

4 Behold my affliction, thy mercy accord,
and back from death's portals restore me, O Lord,
that I in the gates of thy Zion may raise
my song of salvation and show forth thy praise. [Refrain]
