Praise to the Lord, the Almighty

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

Praise to the Lord,
who shall prosper our work and defend us;
Surely God's goodness
and mercy shall daily attend us.
Ponder anew
What the Almighty can do,
Who with his love will befriend us.

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!
