Praise for the LORD's Everlasting Mercy

136 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever. 2  Give thanks to the God of gods, for his steadfast love endures forever. 3  Give thanks to the Lord of lords, for his steadfast love endures forever; 4  to him who alone does great wonders, for his steadfast love endures forever; 5  to him who by understanding made the heavens, for his steadfast love endures forever; 6  to him who spread out the earth above the waters, for his steadfast love endures forever; 7  to him who made the great lights, for his steadfast love endures forever; 8  the sun to rule over the day, for his steadfast love endures forever; 9  the moon and stars to rule over the night, for his steadfast love endures forever;

10  to him who struck down the firstborn of Egypt, for his steadfast love endures forever; 11  and brought Israel out from among them, for his steadfast love endures forever; 12  with a strong hand and an outstretched arm, for his steadfast love endures forever; 13  to him who divided the Red Sea in two, for his steadfast love endures forever; 14  and made Israel pass through the midst of it, for his steadfast love endures forever; 15  but overthrew[1] Pharaoh and his host in the Red Sea, for his steadfast love endures forever; 16  to him who led his people through the wilderness, for his steadfast love endures forever; 17  to him who struck down great kings, for his steadfast love endures forever; 18  and killed mighty kings, for his steadfast love endures forever; 19  Sihon, king of the Amorites, for his steadfast love endures forever; 20  and Og, king of Bashan, for his steadfast love endures forever; 21  and gave their land as a heritage, for his steadfast love endures forever; 22  a heritage to Israel his servant, for his steadfast love endures forever.

23  It is he who remembered us in our low estate, for his steadfast love endures forever; 24  and rescued us from our foes, for his steadfast love endures forever; 25  he who gives food to all flesh, for his steadfast love endures forever. 26  Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever.
