PSALM 105:1-11, 45b
METER: CMD (86 86 D)
SUGGESTED TUNE: CLEANSING FOUNTAIN
This is the meter of such hymns as "There Is a Fountain Filled with Blood."
1. Give thanks to God, call on his name,
Tell his deeds to the earth.
Sing praise and tell his won-drous works,
Give glo-ry to his name;
Let those who wor-ship the Lord God
Re-joice and e'er be glad.
Seek God and call on him for help,
His pres-ence always seek.
2. Re-mem-ber the great things he's done,
Won-ders and judg-ments great,
You off-spring of him who served God,
Your fa-ther A-bra-ham,
And you, de-scend-ants of Ja-cob,
The ones whom God did choose.
He is the Lord our God; in all
The earth his judg-ments are.
3. He keeps his cov-e-nant al-ways,
To gen-e-ra-tions all;
His cov-e-nant to A-bra-ham,
Which he to I-saac swore,
Which he with Ja-cob did con-firm,
Which lasts through-out all time.
He prom-ised them fair Ca-naan's land
As their in-her-it-ance.
(in the fashion of an Amen [this is optional]:)
Praise the Lord!
