1. I will extol Thee, LORD, Thy mercies I will / praise, / And of Thy steadfast love I’ll sing through all my / days. / LORD, with my mouth I will to ev’ry generation / Proclaim Thy faithfulness with joyful adoration. / Thy steadfast love Thou hast established, LORD, / forever; / Thy faithfulness is firm, Thy cov’nant changes / never. /
2. LORD, Thou hast said, “I’ve made a steady / covenant / With him, My chosen one, that I will not recant. / To David as My servant I did once assever, / ‘I will establish your descendants’ reign forever; / Your kingdom will endure, for I laid its / foundations, / And I will build your throne throughout all / generations.’“ /
3. The heavens praise, O LORD, Thy wonders all / their days; / The holy ones in their assembly sing Thy praise. / Thy faithfulness they laud when they, O LORD, / adore Thee, / For who in all the skies can proudly stand before / Thee? / And who can be compared to Thee, our strength / and tower? / Among the sons of God none equals Thee in / power. / W. van der Kamp, 1972; rev.
