24 How many are your works,(A) Lord!
    In wisdom you made(B) them all;
    the earth is full of your creatures.(C)
25 There is the sea,(D) vast and spacious,
    teeming with creatures beyond number—
    living things both large and small.(E)
26 There the ships(F) go to and fro,
    and Leviathan,(G) which you formed to frolic(H) there.(I)

27 All creatures look to you
    to give them their food(J) at the proper time.
28 When you give it to them,
    they gather it up;
when you open your hand,
    they are satisfied(K) with good things.
29 When you hide your face,(L)
    they are terrified;
when you take away their breath,
    they die and return to the dust.(M)
30 When you send your Spirit,(N)
    they are created,
    and you renew the face of the ground.

31 May the glory of the Lord(O) endure forever;
    may the Lord rejoice in his works(P)
32 he who looks at the earth, and it trembles,(Q)
    who touches the mountains,(R) and they smoke.(S)

33 I will sing(T) to the Lord all my life;
    I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
34 May my meditation be pleasing to him,
    as I rejoice(U) in the Lord.
