Let Us With a Gladsome Mind


Let us with a gladsome mind,
Praise the Lord, for he is kind:

Refrain  For his mercies aye endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

Let us blaze his name abroad,
For of gods he is the God: Refrain

He with all-commanding might
Filled the new-made world with light: Refrain

All things living he doth feed;
His full hand supplies their need: Refrain

He his chosen race did bless
In the wasteful wilderness: Refrain

He hath with a piteous eye
Looked upon our misery: Refrain

Let us therefore warble forth
His high majesty and worth: Refrain

~ John Milton, 1623, English
