Praise to the Lord, the Almighty

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;
Join me in glad adoration.

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 we befriend thee.

Catherine Winkworth (1827-1878)
from Joachim Neander (1650-1680)
