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.
