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.
