Thanks Be To God




Psalm 136

God’s Work in Creation and in History

O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
    for his steadfast love endures forever.
O give thanks to the God of gods,
    for his steadfast love endures forever.
O give thanks to the Lord of lords,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
who alone does great wonders,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
who by understanding made the heavens,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
who spread out the earth on the waters,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
who made the great lights,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
the sun to rule over the day,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
the moon and stars to rule over the night,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
10 
who struck Egypt through their firstborn,
    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 
who divided the Red Sea[a] 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 Pharaoh and his army in the Red Sea,[b]
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
16 
who led his people through the wilderness,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
17 
who struck down great kings,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
18 
and killed famous 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 his servant Israel,
    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 
who gives food to all flesh,
    for his steadfast love endures forever.
26 
O give thanks to the God of heaven,
    for his steadfast love endures forever.
