564. Praise to the Lord, the Almighty

1 Praise to the Lord,
the Almighty, the king of creation!
O my soul, praise him,
for he is your health and salvation!
Come, all who hear:
Brothers and sisters, draw near,
Join in profound adoration!

2 Praise to the Lord,
who does prosper our work and defend us;
Surely God's goodness and mercy
here daily attend us.
Ponder anew
What the Almighty can do,
Who with divine love befriends us.

3 Praise to the Lord,
O let all that is in us adore him!
All that has life and breath
come now with praises before him!
Let the "Amen!"
Sound from God's people again.
Gladly with praise we adore him!
