PSALM 107:1-3, 17-22
METER:  77 77 77
SUGGESTED TUNE:  DIX
This is the meter of the hymn "For the Beauty of the Earth."

1.  Give God thanks, for he is good,
    End-less is his stead-fast love.
    Let his ran-somed speak his praise,
    Who he has re-deemed from woe
    And has gath-ered from the lands,
    From the east, west, north, and south.
2.  Some fools suf-fered for their sins,
    For in-i-qui-ties they'd done.
    For they could not stand to eat;
    They drew near the gates of death.
    Then they cried out to the Lord,
    And he saved them from dis-tress..
3.  The Lord spoke, and heal-ing gave,
    From de-struc-tion he saved them.
    Let them thank God for his love,
    For his works to hu-man-kind.
    Let them thank with sac-ri-fice,
    Tell his deeds with joy-ous songs.
