PSALM 105:1-6, 37-45
METER:  CMD (86 86 D)
SUGGESTED TUNE:  CLEANSING FOUNTAIN
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.
    He brought them out with so much wealth,
    And yet the tribes fell not.
3.  E-gypt was glad to see them leave,
    They were a-fraid of them.
    God spread a cloud to cov-er them,
    And fire for light at night.
    They asked, he gave them quails to eat,
    And boun-teous food from heav'n.
    He gave them wa-ter from the rock,
    It like a riv-er flowed.
4.  God kept in mind his prom-is-es
    To A-brah'm, who served him.
    He brought his peo-ple out with joy,
    His cho-sen ones with song.
    He gave them many na-tions' lands,
    They took the peo-ples' wealth,
    That they might e'er o-bey his laws.
    So let us praise the Lord!
