Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of Creation

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,
Praise Him in glad adoration.

2. Praise to the Lord, above all things
So wondrously reigning,
mf Sheltering you under His wings, and,
so gently sustaining,
Have you not seen,
All that is needful have been,
Sent by His gracious ordaining?


3. f Praise to the Lord, who will prosper
your work and defend you.
Surely His goodness and mercy
shall daily attend you.
Ponder anew
What the Almighty can do
If with His love He befriends you.


4. ff Praise to the Lord, who, when tempests
their warfare are waging,
Who, when the elements madly
around you are raging,
He bids them cease,
Turning their fury to peace,
Whirlwinds and waters assuaging.


5. ff 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. Amen

 [Joachim Neander Tr Catherine Winkworth]
