An Exhortation to the Prayse of God, to Be Song before Morning Prayer
CXV. T. B.
PRAYSE 1 the Lord, O ye Gentiles all,
Which hath brought you into his light:
O prayse him all people mortall,
As it is most worthy and right.
For he is full determined        5
On vs to poure his mercy;
And the Lord’s trueth, be ye assured,
Abideth perpetually.
Glory to God the Father, and
To Jesus Christ his true Sonne,        10
With the Holy Ghost in like manner,
Now and at euery season.
Note 1. CXV. T. B.—The hymns to which these initials are affixed appear in the early editions of the Old Version of the Psalms. [back]
