Easy Play Psalm 135
2014 BOOK OF PRAISE OF THE CANADIAN REFORMED CHURCHES
1. Hallelujah! Praise the LORD
and exalt his holy name.
You that serve within his house,
praise his greatness, voice his fame.
You his servants, shout his laud
in the temple courts of God.
2. Praise the LORD, for he is good;
sing your praise to him alone.
He chose Jacob for himself;
Israel he made his own.
Far above all gods is he,
great in power and majesty.
3. He does all that pleases him;
heaven, earth, the deepest sea
do his bidding, heed his will;
clouds rise up at his decree.
With the rain he lightning sends;
winds and tempests he commands.
4. Egypt’s firstborn he destroyed,
striking down both man and beast.
He his signs and wonders sent;
Egypt’s kingdom he laid waste,
showing Pharaoh and his court
that no man his will can thwart.
5. Many nations he struck down,
kings and princes great in might:
Og, the king of Bashan’s hills,
Sihon of the Amorites.
He smote Canaan’s kingdoms all,
gave their land to Israel.
6. Your exalted name, O LORD,
will stand firm for evermore;
your great glory and renown
through all ages will endure.
For the LORD will vindicate
all who for his mercy wait.
7. Idols are but precious ore,
fashioned by the hands of men.
They have eyes, but cannot see;
nations worship them in vain.
They have mouths, but cannot speak.
Why should men their favour seek?
8. They have ears, but cannot hear;
nothing can they understand.
In their mouths there is no breath,
and their makers, in the end,
like their idols will become;
so will all who trust in them.
9. Come, O house of Israel,
sing the praises of the LORD.
Come, O Aaron’s priestly house,
bless his name with one accord.
Levi’s house, your voices raise.
You that fear him, sing his praise.
10. Blest from Zion be the LORD,
who dwells in Jerusalem.
Let his people all rejoice;
let them praise and worship him.
Hallelujah! Praise the LORD!
Bless his name with one accord.
