Words

O GIVE thanks unto the LORD; for he is gracious, * and his mercy endureth for ever.
2 Who can express the noble acts of the LORD, * or show forth all his praise?
3 Blessed are they that alway keep judgment, * and do righteousness.
4 Remember me, O LORD, according to the favour that thou bearest unto thy people; * O visit me with thy salvation;
5 That I may see the felicity of thy chosen, * and rejoice in the gladness of thy people, and give thanks with thine inheritance.
6 We have sinned with our fathers; * we have done amiss, and dealt wickedly.
7 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.
8 Nevertheless, he helped them for his Name's sake, * that he might make his power to be known.
9 He rebuked the Red Sea also, and it was dried up; * so he led them through the deep, as through a wilderness.
10 And he saved them from the adversary's hand, * and delivered them from the hand of the enemy.
11 As for those that troubled them, the waters overwhelmed them; * there was not one of them left.
12 Then believed they his words, * and sang praise unto him.
Gloria
