111 1Hallelujah! I give thanks to God with everything I’ve got— Wherever good people gather, and in the congregation. 2God’s works are so great, worth A lifetime of study—endless enjoyment! 3Splendor and beauty mark his craft; His generosity never gives out. 4His miracles are his memorial— This God of Grace, this God of Love. 5He gave food to those who fear him, He remembered to keep his ancient promise. 6He proved to his people that he could do what he said: Hand them the nations on a platter—a gift! 7He manufactures truth and justice; All his products are guaranteed to last— 8Never out–of–date, never obsolete, rust–proof. All that he makes and does is honest and true: 9He paid the ransom for his people, He ordered his Covenant kept forever. He’s so personal and holy, worthy of our respect. 10The good life begins in the fear of God— Do that and you’ll know the blessing of God. His Hallelujah lasts forever!
