1 Let us gladly with one mind
praise the Lord, for he is kind:
for his mercy shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

2 He has made the realms of space,
all things have their ordered place:
for his mercy shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

3 He created sky and sea,
field and mountain, flower and tree:
for his mercy shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

4 Every creature, great and small
God alone has made them all:
for his mercy shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

5 Then he fashioned humankind,
crown of all that he designed:
for his mercy shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

6 He has shaped our destiny
heaven for all eternity:
for his mercy shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

7 Glory then to God on high,
'Glory!' let creation cry:
for his mercy shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

John Milton (1608 - 1674) adapted by Michael Saward (born 1932) from Psalm 136
