1 Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation!
O my soul, praise him, for he is thy health and salvation;
all ye who hear, now to his temple draw near,
joining in glad adoration.
2 Praise to the Lord, who o'er all things so wondrously reigneth,
shieldeth thee gently from harm, or when fainting sustaineth;
hast thou not seen, how thy heart's wishes have been
granted in what he ordaineth?
3 Praise to the Lord, who doth prosper thy work and defend thee;
surely his goodness and mercy shall daily attend thee;
ponder anew what the Almighty can do
who with his love doth befriend thee.
4 Praise to the Lord! O let all that is in me adore him!
All that hath life and breath come now with praises before him!
Let the Amen sound from his people again:
gladly for aye we adore him!
