Original text and translations
O give thanks unto the Lord for he is gracious: and his mercy endureth for ever.
O sing praises unto the Lord: and give thanks unto him,
with a remembrance of his goodness.
God hath shewed his goodness plenteously:
and our eyes have seen their desire upon our enemies.
The Lord's name be praised therefore: from this time forth for evermore.
