O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is gracious *
and his mercy endureth for ever.
Who can express the noble acts of the Lord *
or shew forth all his praise?
Blessed are they that alway keep judgement *
and do righteousness.
Remember me, O Lord, according to the favour that thou bearest unto thy people *
O visit me with thy salvation;
That I may see the felicity of thy chosen *
and rejoice in the gladness of thy people, and give thanks with thine inheritance.
We have sinned with our fathers *
we have done amiss, and dealt wickedly.
Our fathers regarded not thy wonders in Egypt, neither kept they thy great goodness in remembrance *
but were disobedient at the sea, even at the Red sea.
Nevertheless, he helped them for his Name’s sake *
that he might make his power to be known.
He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up *
so he led them through the deep, as through a wilderness.
And he saved them from the adversaries’ hand *
and delivered them from the hand of the enemy.
As for those that troubled them, the waters overwhelmed them *
there was not one of them left.
Then believed they his words *
and sang praise unto him.
But within a while they forgat his works *
and would not abide his counsel.
But lust came upon them in the wilderness *
and they tempted God in the desert.
And he gave them their desire *
and sent leanness withal into their soul.
They angered Moses also in the tents *
and Aaron the saint of the Lord.
So the earth opened, and swallowed up Dathan *
and covered the congregation of Abiram.
And the fire was kindled in their company *
the flame burnt up the ungodly.
