1 Praise ye 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;
Join me in glad adoration!
2 Praise ye the Lord, who o'er all things he wondrously reigneth,
Shelters thee under His wings, yea, so gently sustaineth!
Hast thou not seen
How thy desires e'er have been
Granted in what He ordaineth?
3 Praise ye the Lord, who with marvelous wisdom that made thee!
Decked thee with health, and with loving hand guided and stayed thee;
How oft in grief
Hath not He brought thee relief,
Spreading His wings for to shad thee!
4 Praise ye 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:
