1 It is good to sing your praises
And to thank you, O Most High,
Showing forth your loving-kindness
When the morning lights the sky.
It is good when night is falling
Of your faithfulness to tell,
While with sweet, melodious praises
Songs of adoration swell.
2 You have filled my heart with gladness
Through the works your hands have wrought;
Your have made my life victorious;
Great your works and deep your thought.
You , O Lord, on high exalted,
reign forevermore in might;
All your enemies shall perish,
Sin be banished from your sight.
3 But the good shall live before you,
Planted in your dwelling-place,
Fruitful trees and ever verdant,
Nourished by your boundless grace.
In His goodness to the righteous
God His righteousness displays;
God my rock, my strength and refuge,
Just and true are all your ways.
