PSALM 105:1-6, 16-22, 45b
METER:  CMD (86 86 D)
This is the meter to 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 al-ways 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.
    God sent a fam-ine to the land
    And took away their food.
3.  But God sent one a-head of them,
    Jo-seph, sold as a slave.
    In chains and neck irons he was kept,
    Till what he said came true.
    The word of God had proved him right,
    The king had him re-leased,
    And gave him rule o'er all his land,
    Of-fi-cials to in-struct.
