Praise to the Sovereign Lord for His Creation and Providence(A)

104 Bless (B)the Lord, O my soul!

O Lord my God, You are very great:
You are clothed with honor and majesty,
Who cover Yourself with light as with a garment,
Who stretch out the heavens like a curtain.

(C)He lays the beams of His upper chambers in the waters,
Who makes the clouds His chariot,
Who walks on the wings of the wind,
Who makes His angels spirits,
His [a]ministers a flame of fire.

  1. Psalm 104:4 servants

24 (A)O Lord, how manifold are Your works!
In wisdom You have made them all.
The earth is full of Your (B)possessions—
25 This great and wide sea,
In which are innumerable teeming things,
Living things both small and great.
26 There the ships sail about;
There is that (C)Leviathan[a]
Which You have [b]made to play there.

27 (D)These all wait for You,
That You may give them their food in due season.
28 What You give them they gather in;
You open Your hand, they are filled with good.
29 You hide Your face, they are troubled;
(E)You take away their breath, they die and return to their dust.
30 (F)You send forth Your Spirit, they are created;
And You renew the face of the earth.
