1 It is good to sing Your praises
and to thank You, O Most High,
showing forth Your lovingkindness
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 our hearts with gladness
at the works Your hands have wrought;
You have made our lives victorious;
great Your works and deep Your thoughts.
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 disp0lays;
God, our Rock, our Strength and Refuge,
just and true are all Your ways!
