Praise to the Lord, the Almighty

Melody - "Lobe Den Herren", 1665

Joachim Neander

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,
Now to His temple draw near;
Praise Him in glad adoration.

2. Praise to the Lord, who o'er all things
So wondrously reigneth,
Shelters thee under His wings,
Yea, so gently sustaineth!
Hast thou not seen
How thy desires e'er have been
Granted in what He ordaineth?

  3. 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.

4. 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.

5. Praise to the Lord, who with
Marvelous wisdom hath made thee,
Decked thee with health, and with
Loving hand guided and stayed thee!
How oft in grief
Hath not He brought thee relief,
Spreading His wings for to shade thee!
