PSALM 105:1-6, 23-26, 45c
METER:  CMD (86 86 D)
SUGGESTED TUNE:  CLEANSING FOUNTAIN
This is the meter for hymns such 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.
    For Is-rael came to E-gypt's land;
    They lived as a-liens there.
3.  God gave his peo-ple pro-gen-y,
    Till strong-er than their foes,
    Whose hearts God turned to hate his own,
    And treat them with de-ceit.
    His ser-vant, Mo-ses, he then sent,
    And Aa-ron, whom he chose.
    O praise the Lord, yes, praise his name!
    Praise God!  Hal-le-lu-jah!
