Hodu l'Adonai הדו ליהוה



Hodu l'Adonai ki tov,
ki lay'olam khas doe.
Hodu l'Adonai ki tov, 
ki layolam khas does.
Hodu, hodu
Hodu, hodu
Hodu l'Adonai ki tov,
Hodu, hodu
Hodu, hodu
Hodu l'Adonai ki tov.

Translation: Give Thanks unto the Lord for He is good, His mercy forever endures.  Give Thanks to the Lord for He is good, His mercy forever endures.  Give thanks, give thanks, give thanks, give thanks. Give Thanks unto the Lord for He is good!  Give thanks, give thanks, give thanks, give thanks.  Give thanks unto the Lord for He is good!
(from Psalm 107:1)

Psalm 136 

Give thanks to Adonai, for he is good,
for his grace continues forever.

Give thanks to the God of gods,
for his grace continues forever.

Give thanks to the Lord of lords,
for his grace continues forever;

to him who alone has done great wonders,
for his grace continues forever;

 to him who skillfully made the heavens,
for his grace continues forever; to him who spread out the earth on the water,
for his grace continues forever;
 to him who made the great lights,
for his grace continues forever;
the sun to rule the day,
for his grace continues forever;
 the moon and stars to rule the night,
for his grace continues forever;

 to him who struck down Egypt’s firstborn,
for his grace continues forever;
 and brought Isra’el out from among them,
for his grace continues forever;
 with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm,
for his grace continues forever;

 to him who split apart the Sea of Suf,
for his grace continues forever;
 and made Isra’el cross right through it,
for his grace continues forever;
 but swept Pharaoh and his army into the Sea of Suf,
for his grace continues forever;

 to him who led his people through the desert,
for his grace continues forever;
 to him who struck down great kings,
for his grace continues forever;
 yes, he slaughtered powerful kings,
for his grace continues forever;
 Sichon king of the Emori,
for his grace continues forever;
and ‘Og king of Bashan,
for his grace continues forever;

then he gave their land as a heritage,
for his grace continues forever;
 to be possessed by Isra’el his servant,
for his grace continues forever;

 who remembers us whenever we are brought low,
for his grace continues forever;
 and rescues us from our enemies,
for his grace continues forever;

 who provides food for every living creature,
for his grace continues forever.

 Give thanks to the God of heaven,
for his grace continues forever.
