Psalm 136

God’s Work in Creation and in History

O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever.
O give thanks to the God of gods,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever.
O give thanks to the Lord of lords,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever;

who alone does great wonders,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever;
who by understanding made the heavens,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever;
who spread out the earth on the waters,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever;
who made the great lights,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever;
the sun to rule over the day,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever;
the moon and stars to rule over the night,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever;

10 who struck Egypt through their firstborn,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever;
11 and brought Israel out from among them,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever;
12 with a strong hand and an outstretched arm,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever;
13 who divided the Red Sea[a] in two,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever;
14 and made Israel pass through the midst of it,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever;
15 but overthrew Pharaoh and his army in the Red Sea,[b]
    for his steadfast love endures for ever;
16 who led his people through the wilderness,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever;
17 who struck down great kings,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever;
18 and killed famous kings,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever;
19 Sihon, king of the Amorites,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever;
20 and Og, king of Bashan,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever;
21 and gave their land as a heritage,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever;
22 a heritage to his servant Israel,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever.

23 It is he who remembered us in our low estate,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever;
24 and rescued us from our foes,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever;
25 who gives food to all flesh,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever.

26 O give thanks to the God of heaven,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever.
