C83. Thanksgiving-Day

1 O praise the LORD for it is a good thing to sing praises unto our God; yea, a joyful and pleasant thing it is to be thankful.
2 The LORD doth build up Jerusalem and gather together the outcasts of Israel.
3 He healeth those that are broken in heart and giveth medicine to heal their sickness.
4 O sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving; sing praises upon the harp unto our God;
5 Who covereth the heaven with clouds and prepareth rain for the earth and maketh the grass to grow upon the mountains and herb for the use of men;
6 Who giveth fodder unto the cattle; And feedeth the young ravens that call upon him.
7 Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Sion.
8 For he hath made fast the bars of thy gates and hath blessed thy children within thee.
9 He maketh peace in thy borders and filleth thee with the flour of wheat.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
