Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

126. My Soul, Bless the Lord!

1 My soul, bless the Lord! The Lord is most great,
with glory arrayed, majestic his state;
the light is his garment, the skies are his shade,
and over the waters his courts he has laid.

2 He rides on the clouds, the wings of the storm,
the lightning and wind his mission perform;
the earth he has founded her station to keep,
and wrapped as a vesture about her the deep.

3 He waters the hills with rain from the skies,
and plentiful grass and herbs he supplies,
supplying the cattle, and blessing man's toil
with bread in abundance, with wine and with oil.

4 The trees which the Lord has planted are fed,
and over the earth their branches are spread;
they keep in their shelter the birds of the air,
the life of each creature the Lord makes his care.

5 Your Spirit, O Lord, makes life to abound,
the earth is renewed, and fruitful the ground;
to God ascribe glory and wisdom and might,
let God in his creatures forever delight.

6 Rejoicing in God, my thought shall be sweet,
while sinners depart in ruin complete;
my soul, bless Jehovah, his name be adored,
come, praise him, you people, and worship the Lord.
