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;
Praise Him in glad adoration.
Praise to the Lord, who over all things so wonderf'ly reigneth,
shelters thee under His wings, yea, so gently sustaineth.
Hast thou not seen how thy desires ever have been
granted in what He ordaineth?
Let the "Amen" sound from his people again;
who forever adore Him.
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,
if with His love He befriend thee.
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.
