From the Trinity Psalter, © Crown and Covenant, used with permission

1O thank the Lord; on His name call; His deeds tell peoples all;
2O sing to Him, sing psalms to Him, His wonders all recall.
3Let hearts that seek the Lord rejoice; His holy name adore;
4O seek Jehovah and His strength; His face seek evermore.

5Remember all His miracles; the judgments He has done;
6On Abrah’m’s children, serving Him, all Jacob’s sons, His own.
7He only is the Lord our God; His judgments fill the land;
8He keeps in mind His covenant, that it may always stand.

A thousand ages to endure, commanded He His word;
9With Abrah’m made a covenant, the promise Isaac heard;
10A law to Jacob He confirmed, a bond for Israel:
11“I will to you give Canaan’s land, where you as heir may dwell.”

12When few in number, scarcely known, they sojourned in the land;
13From nation on to nation went, a restless, wand’ring band;
14He let none hurt them; for their sakes, to kings He gave alarm:
15“Touch not my own anointed ones, nor do my prophets harm.”

16When He brought famine on the land, and broke their staff of bread;
17Our Joseph they sold as a slave; He had sent on ahead.
18His feet they hurt with fetters strong, and him in irons did bind;
19Till what he prophesied came true; The Lord’s word him refined.

20The king, the peoples’ ruler, sent to loose and set him free;
21He made him lord of all his house; Guard of his wealth to be.
22He gave him pow’r to bind at will the princes of the land;
To share his wisdom, and to make his elders understand.

23When Is-ra-el to Egypt came, when Jacob journeyed west,
To settle in the land of Ham, the Lord his children blessed.
24He made them stronger than their foes; whose hearts He filled with hate,
25That made them hunt his people out; His servants chide and cheat.

26Then He His servant Moses sent, and Aaron whom He chose;
27They miracles in Egypt wrought; His signs among their foes.
28He darkness sent, the land made dark, so they His words might try;
29He turned their waters into blood, and caused their fish to die.

30He made their land to swarm with frogs; Kings’ chambers filled with them;
31He spoke, and swarms of flies and gnats throughout their country came.
32He gave them hail instead of rain, flashed lightning through their land;
33He smote their fig trees and their vines, slashed trees on ev’ry hand.

34/5He spoke, and countless locusts came; Their fruits and leaves devoured;
36He killed each firstborn in the land; The firstborn of their pow’r.
37He led His people forth enriched with silver and with gold;
And there was none among His tribes who stumbled, young or old.

38How glad was Egypt when they went! It shook with dread of them;
39He spread a cloud to cover them; by night it shined like flame.
40At their request, He brought them quail; He bread from heav’n bestowed;
41He split the rock and water gushed; Through desert lands it flowed.

42His holy promise He recalled; How Abrah’m served Him long;
43He led His people forth with joy; His chosen ones with song.
44The nations’ lands, the peoples’ toil, He gave them for their own;
45That they should keep and heed his law; O praise the Lord alone.
