1  I'll extol Thee, my God, the King,
bless Your name fore'er and e'er.
2 In every day I will bless Thee,
praise Your name fore'er and e'er.

 Great is the LORD, and greatly to,
He's so greatly to be praised.
His greatness is unsearchable,
though we seek in all our days.

4 Generations shall laud Thy works
and Thy mighty acts declare.
5 I'll speak of Thy marvelous works
and Thy glorious  splendor ,

 6. and they'll tell of Thy fearsome might ,
and Thy great deeds I'll declare.
The mem'ry of Thy great goodness
they shall abundantly pour,

and Thy righteousness they shall sing.
 Gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger, of great mercy
is the LORD, our advocate.

Good is the LORD unto all, and
o'er all His works is mercy.
10 All Thy works, LORD, they shall praise Thee,
and Thy saints, they shall bless Thee.

11 They shall talk about the glory
of Thy kingdom and Thy pow'r
12 to make known to the sons of men
His acts and kingdom's splendor.

13  Thy great kingdom is a kingdom
unto all ages to come;
thy dominion a dominion
unto all generations.

13b Faithful is the LORD in His words
and in all His works kindly.
14 The LORD upholds all the falling,
raises up all the lowly.

15The eyes of all wait upon Thee.
Food in season You're giving.
16 You open Your hand and fillest
the desire of all living.

17The LORD's righteous in all His ways
and in all His works kindly.
18 . The LORD's near to all that call Him,
all that call Him sincerely.

19  The desire of them that fear Him
He does, saves and hears their cry.
20 The LORD preserves all that love Him,
but all wicked He'll destroy.

21 Praise to the LORD my mouth shall speak;
let all flesh His name extol,
bless His holy name forever.
This for a memorial.

Praise to the LORD my mouth shall speak;
let all flesh His name extol,
bless His holy name forever.
This for a memorial.

And day by day, continuing steadfastly with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread at home, they took their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, (Act 2:46)
