Lyrics:
1.  We thank You, Lord, for You are good;
    Your mercy lives forever.
    Your kindness from of old has stood;
    Your love will keep us ever.
    O God of gods, O sovereign Lord,
    We bless You now with one accord:
    Your love is everlasting.

2.  You, Lord, alone did wondrous deeds;
    Your mercy lives forever.
    From You alone all good proceeds;
    Your love will keep us ever.
    Your wisdom made the heavens to be;
    You formed the earth above the sea:
    Your love is everlasting.

3.  You made the starry lights to rise;
    Your mercy lives forever.
    Your glories shine in radiant skies;
    Your love will keep us ever.
    Your glowing moon enhances night.
    Your sun brings forth each mornings light:
    Your love is everlasting.

4.  You rescue us from every foe;
    Your mercy lives forever.
    You feed Your creatures here below;
    Your love will keep us ever.
    We give You thanks, Creator, Lord;
    We sing the glories of Your Word.
    Your love is everlasting.
