319. 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 thy health and salvation!
All ye who hear, now to His temple draw near;
praise Him in glad adoration.

2 Praise to the Lord,
who o'er all things so wondrously reigneth,
shelters thee under His wings,
yea, so gently attaineth!
Hast thou not seen how thy desires e'er have been
granted in what He ordaineth?

3 Praise to the Lord,
who doth prosper thy works 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.

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 forever adore Him.
