O give thanks unto the Lord, and call upon his Name *
tell the people what things he hath done.
O let your songs be of him, and praise him *
and let your talking be of all his wondrous works.
Rejoice in his holy Name *
let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord.
Seek the Lord and his strength *
seek his face evermore.
Remember the marvellous works that he hath done *
his wonders, and the judgements of his mouth.
O ye seed of Abraham his servant *
ye children of Jacob his chosen.
He is the Lord our God *
his judgements are in all the world.
He hath been alway mindful of his covenant and promise *
that he made to a thousand generations;
Even the covenant that he made with Abraham *
and the oath that he sware unto Isaac;
And appointed the same unto Jacob for a law *
and to Israel for an everlasting testament;
Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan *
the lot of your inheritance;
When there were yet but a few of them *
and they strangers in the land;
What time as they went from one nation to another *
from one kingdom to another people;
He suffered no man to do them wrong *
but reproved even kings for their sakes;
Touch not mine Anointed *
and do my prophets no harm.
Moreover, he called for a dearth upon the land *
and destroyed all the provision of bread.
But he had sent a man before them *
even Joseph, who was sold to be a bond-servant;
Whose feet they hurt in the stocks *
the iron entered into his soul;
Until the time came that his cause was known *
the word of the Lord tried him.
The king sent, and delivered him *
the prince of the people let him go free.
He made him lord also of his house *
and ruler of all his substance;
That he might inform his princes after his will *
and teach his senators wisdom.
Israel also came into Egypt *
and Jacob was a stranger in the land of Ham.
And he increased his people exceedingly *
and made them stronger than their enemies;
Whose heart turned, so that they hated his people *
and dealt untruly with his servants.
Then sent he Moses his servant *
and Aaron whom he had chosen.
And these shewed his tokens among them *
and wonders in the land of Ham.
He sent darkness, and it was dark *
and they were not obedient unto his word.
He turned their waters into blood *
and slew their fish.
Their land brought forth frogs *
yea, even in their kings’ chambers.
He spake the word, and there came all manner of flies *
and lice in all their quarters.
He gave them hail-stones for rain *
and flames of fire in their land.
He smote their vines also and fig-trees *
and destroyed the trees that were in their coasts.
He spake the word, and the grasshoppers came, and caterpillars innumerable *
and did eat up all the grass in their land, and devoured the fruit of their ground.
He smote all the first-born in their land *
even the chief of all their strength.
He brought them forth also with silver and gold *
there was not one feeble person among their tribes.
Egypt was glad at their departing *
for they were afraid of them.
He spread out a cloud to be a covering *
and fire to give light in the night-season.
At their desire he brought quails *
and he filled them with the bread of heaven.
He opened the rock of stone, and the waters flowed out *
so that rivers ran in the dry places.
For why? he remembered his holy promise *
and Abraham his servant.
And he brought forth his people with joy *
and his chosen with gladness;
And gave them the lands of the heathen *
and they took the labours of the people in possession;
That they might keep his statutes *
and observe his laws.
