It Is Good to Sing Praises

1O prayse the LORDE, for it is a good thinge to synge prayses vnto or God: yee a ioyfull and pleasaunt thinge is it to be thankfull.

2The LORDE shal buylde vp Ierusale, & gather together ye outcastes of Israel.

3He healeth the contrite in herte, and byndeth vp their woundes.

4He telleth the nombre of the starres, and calleth them all by their names.

5Greate is or LORDE, and greate is his power, yee his wysdome is infinite.

6The LORDE setteth vp ye meke, & bryngeth ye vngodly downe to ye groude

7O synge vnto ye LORDE wt thankesgeuynge, synge prayses vpo ye harpe vnto or God.

8Which couereth ye heauen wt cloudes, prepareth rayne for ye earth, & maketh ye grasse to growe vpon the mountaynes.

9Which geueth foder vnto ye catell, & fedeth ye yonge rauens yt call vpo him.

10He hath no pleasure in the strength of an horse, nether delyteth he in eny mas legges.

11But the LORDES delyte is in them that feare him, and put their trust in his mercy.

12Prayse ye LORDE o Ierusale, prayse yi God o Sion.

13For he maketh fast ye barres of yi gates, & blesseth yi childre within ye.

14He maketh peace in yi borders, & fylleth ye with ye flor of wheate.

15He sendeth forth his comaundemet vpo earth, his worde runeth swiftly.

16He geueth snowe like woll, & scatereth ye horefrost like ashes.

17He casteth forth his yse like morsels, who is able to abyde his frost?

18He sendeth out his worde and melteth them, he bloweth wt his wynde, & the waters flowe.

19He sheweth his worde vnto Iacob, his statutes & ordinaunces vnto Israel.

20He hath not dealte so wt all the Heithen, nether haue they knowlege of his lawes. Halleluya.
