PSALM 106:1-6, 19-23
METER:  88 88 88
This is the meter for such hymns as "Faith of Our Fathers."

1.  Praise the Lord!  Thank him, for he's good;
    His stead-fast love al-ways en-dures.
    Who can speak of his might-y deeds,
    Who can de-clare his praise in full?
    Happy are those who just-ice do,
    Who at all times do right-eous-ness.
2.  Re-mem-ber me when you send help,
    When to your peo-ple you send aid;
    That I may see your peo-ple thrive,
    That I may share your na-tion's joy,
    That I may glo-ry in your own.
    We and our fore-bears all have sinned.
3.  At Si-nai's mount they made a calf,
    An i-dol that they called their god.
    The true God's glo-ry they ex-changed
    For a grass-eat-ing ox-'s form.
    Their God, their Sav-ior, they for-got,
    Who won-ders had in E-gypt done.
4.  God did great things in E-gypt's land,
    Won-ders he did at the Red Sea.
    So God said he would them de-stroy
    Had not his serv-ant, Mo-ses, stood
    Be-tween God and his cho-sen ones
    To turn back his de-struc-tive wrath.
