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,
Brothers and sisters draw near,
Praise Him In glad adoration.

2.Praise to the Lord, who doth prosper
thy work 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.

3.Praise to the Lord,who,
when tempests their warfare are waging,
Who,when the elements madly around
thee are raging, Biddeth them cease,
Turneth  their  fury  to  peace,
Whirlwinds and waters assuaging.

4.Praise to the Lord, who when
darkness of sin Is abounding,
Who, when the godless do triumph,
all virtue confounding,
Sheddeth His light,
Chaseth the horrors of night,
Saints with His mercy surrounding.

5.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 for aye we adore Him.
Amen.
