O praise the Lord
Language: English 
 O praise the Lord, for it is a good thing
 to sing praises unto our God;
 yea, a joyful and pleasant thing it is to be thankful.
 O let your songs be of him and praise him,
 and let your talking be of all his wondrous works.

 Remember the marvellous works that he hath done,
 his wonders and the judgements of his mouth.

   ---

 Praise the Lord, O my soul,
 and forget not all his benefits;
 Which forgiveth all thy sins
 and healeth all thy infirmities.
 And gathereth thee out of the land,
 from the East and from the West,
 from the North and from the South.
 And saveth thy life from destruction
 and crowneth thee with mercy and loving kindness.

   ---

 O praise the Lord. ye angels of his,
 ye that excel in strength, ye that fulfil his commandments
 and hearken unto the voice of his words.
 O speak good of the Lord, all ye works of his,
 in all places of his dominions.

 Praise thou the Lord, O my soul.
 Whilst I live will I praise the Lord.
