1 To God, the mighty Lord, your joyful thanks repeat; To him due praise afford, as good as he is great. For God does prove our constant friend; His boundless love shall never end.
2,3 To him whose wondrous pow'r all other gods obey, Whom earthly kings adore, this grateful homage pay. For God, &c.

6 He spread the ocean round about the spacious land; And made the rising ground above the waters stand. For God, &c.
7,8,9 Thro' heav'n he did display his num'rous hosts of light; The sun to rule by day, the moon and stars by night, For God, &c.
10,11,12 He struck the first-born dead of Egypt's stubborn land; And thence his people led with his resistless hand. For God, &c.
13,14 By him the raging sea, as if in pieces rent, Disclosed a middle way, thro' which his people went. For God, &c.
15 Where soon he overthrew proud Pharaoh and his host, Who, daring to pursue, were in the billows lost. For God, &c.
16,17,18 Thro' deserts vast and wild he led the chosen seed; And famous princes foiled, and made great monarchs bleed. For God, &c.
19,20 Sihon, whose potent hand great Ammon's scepter swayed; And Or, whose stern command rich Bashan's land obeyed, For God, &c.
21,22 And of his wondrous grace, their lands, whom he destroyed, He gave to Israel's race, to be by them enjoyed. For God, &c.
23,24 He, in oar depth of woes, on us with favor thought, And from our cruel foes in peace and safety brought. For God, &c.
25,26 He does the food supply on which all creatures live: To God who reigns on high eternal praises give. For God will prove our constant friend; His boundless love shall never end.
