57. 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!
All you who hear, now to his temple draw near;
join me in glad adoration.

2 Praise to the Lord, who o'er all things is wondrously reigning,
Shelters you under his wings, oh, so gently sustaining.
Have you not seen: all that is needful has been
sent by his gracious ordaining.

3 Praise to the Lord, who will prosper your work and defend you.
Surely his goodness and mercy here daily attend you.
Ponder anew what the Almighty can do,
if with his love he befriends you.

4 Praise to the Lord! O let all that is in me adore him!
All that has life and breath, come now with praises before him!
Let the Amen sound from his people again;
gladly forever adore him.
