Give thanks to God,
All ye His saints!
Lift up your voice,
Sing and rejoice,
All glory, laud;
No more complaints,
All ye His saints,
Give thanks to God!

This poem is written in the style of many of the psalms, but it is not patterned after any one of them in particular. I wrote this in response to Linda Luna’s San Hsien Challenge from Dark Side of the Moon.
San Hsien [SAN-she-in] = decastich (10-line poem) in iambic dimeter
with rhyme scheme: ABbaccabBA
Lines 1 and 2 are repeated as lines 10 and 9, respectively.
