Verse 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,
Brothers and sisters draw near,
Praise him in glad adoration.

Verse 2

Praise to the Lord, who doth prosper thy
work and defend thee;
Surely his goodness and mercy here daily
attend thee:
Ponder anew
What the Almighty can do,
lf with his love doth befriend thee.

Verse 3

Praise to the Lord who, when tempests
their warfare are waging,
Who, when the elements madly around
thee are raging,
Biddeth them cease,
Turneth their fury to peace,
Whirlwinds and waters assuaging.

Verse 4

Praise to the Lord, who when darkness
of sin is abounding,
Who, when godless do triumph, all virtue
confounding,
Sheddeth his light,
Chaseth the horrors of night,
Saints with his mercy surrounding.

Verse 5

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.
