POETRY: Laudate Dominum by Mary Herbert, Countess of Pembroke

Laudate Dominum by Mary Herbert, Countess of Pembroke

O praise the Lord, all ye nation: praise him, all ye people. For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the Lord endureth for ever. Praise ye the Lord. (Psalm 117:1–2)

Praise him that aye
Remains the same:
All tongues display
Iehavoa’s fame.
Sing all that share
This Earthly ball:
His mercies are
Exposed to all:
Like as the word
Once he doth give,
Rolled in record,
Doth time outlive.
