A HYMN FOR TODAY – Let Us, With a Gladsome Mind

A HYMN FOR TODAY

Let us, with a gladsome mind,
Praise the LORD, for He is kind.
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

Let us blaze His name abroad,
For of gods He is the God.
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

He with all commanding might
Filled the new-made world with light.
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

All things living He doth feed;
His full hand supplies their need.
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

Let us then, with gladsome mind,
Praise the LORD, for He is kind.
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.
