1 Praise the LORD! Extol his goodness!
for his love endures always.
2 Who can tell his mighty actions,
or in full declare his praise?
3 Blessed are those whose way is right,
acting justly in his sight.
4 When you show your people favour,
then, O LORD, remember me.
Help me when you come to save them;
5 Let me know prosperity -
joyful with your chosen race,
joining them in giving praise.
6 We have sinned just like our fathers;
we have done what was not right.
7 When our fathers were in Egypt
they despised your deeds of might.
All your mercies they ignored -
at the Red Sea spurned the LORD.
8 Yet for his name's sake he saved them
and revealed his mighty hand.
9 By his word the Sea he parted,
led them through as on dry land -
10 From the hand of foes set free,
rescued from the enemy.
11 Then their adversaries foundered;
not a single one survived.
12 So the people sang his praises,
and his promises believed;
13 But his works they soon forgot,
and his counsel set at nought.
