Extol in the dance,
With timbrel and harp
His praises express :
Who always takes pleasure
His saints to advance,
And with His salvation
The humble to bless.

N. V. O PRAISE the Lord in that bless'd place,
From whence His goodness largely flows; Praise Him in heaven, where He His face
Unveil'd in perfect glory shows. Praise Him for all the mighty acts
Which He in our behalf has done : His kindness this return exacts,
With which our praise should equal run. Let all that vital breath enjoy,
The breath He does to them afford, In just returns of praise employ:
Let ev'ry creature praise the Lord.
CL (II.) COME, praise the Lord, come praise Him,
Within His holy seat; In all His glories praise Him,
And His great acts repeat. As He excelleth, praise Him,
With trumpet and with flute; With harp and psaltery praise Him, With viol and with lute,
Upon the timbrel praise Him,
In song His praise advance; Upon the organs praise Him,
And praise Him in the dance. On tingling cymbals praise Him,
On cymbals loud that sound; And let all creatures praise Him,
In whom life-breath is found.
