Easy Play Psalm 145
2014 BOOK OF PRAISE OF THE CANADIAN REFORMED CHURCHES
1. I will exalt you, O my God and King,
and bless your name forever as I sing.
Yes, daily blessing you, I will adore
and praise your holy name for evermore.
Great is the LORD, worthy of praise unending;
his greatness is beyond all understanding.
One age will to the next proclaim the story
of his great deeds, his acts of might and glory.
2. They will, O LORD, your wondrous works relate,
and I will on your splendour meditate.
They of your glorious deeds will speak at length,
while I declare your awesome acts of strength.
They will acclaim your goodness with rejoicing,
sing of your justice, joyful praises voicing.
Great is your love and boundless your compassion;
slow is your wrath in dealing with transgression.
3. You show to all your goodness and your grace;
you all your creatures in your love embrace.
Your tender mercy they, O LORD, will bless,
and all your saints will praise your faithfulness.
They will extol your kingdom’s power and grandeur,
your mighty acts and your majestic splendour,
and so make known to every tribe and nation
your glorious deeds, your kingdom’s exaltation.
4. Your kingdom will from age to age extend;
of your dominion there will be no end.
In mercy you uphold all those who fall,
and you lift up the lowly when they call.
All look to you in hope, and with good reason,
for you prepare their food for them in season.
Your hand you open in most gracious giving
to satisfy the needs of all things living.
5. The LORD is just and kind in all his ways;
he in his deeds his steadfast love displays.
To all who call on him, the LORD is near;
he satisfies all those who him revere.
He hears the cry of those who seek him truly
but will destroy the wicked and unruly.
My mouth to him its praises will deliver.
Let every creature praise his name forever.
