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,
Now to His temple draw near;
Sing now in glad adoration!
2
Praise to the Lord, who o’er all
  things so wondrously reigneth,
Who, as on wings of an eagle,
  uplifteth, sustaineth.
    Hast thou not seen
How thy desires all have been
Granted in what He ordaineth?
3
Praise to the Lord, who hath fearfully,
  wondrously, made thee!
Health hath vouchsafed and, when
  heedlessly falling, hath stayed thee.
    What need or grief
Ever hath failed of relief?
Wings of His mercy did shade thee.
4
Praise to the Lord, who doth prosper
  thy work and defend thee,
Who from the heavens the streams of
  His mercy doth send thee.
    Ponder anew
What the Almighty can do,
Who with His love doth befriend thee.
5
Praise to the Lord! Oh, 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.

This melody came to me this morning so I looked up the lyrics. We sang this in my childhood church. The second verse brought tears to my eyes. He is good. Spread the word: He is good!!

Praise to the Lord the Almighty and the King of creation. All that is in me truly praises Your holy name. This song uplifts my spirit and makes me feel the presence of God around me even more. Sang it as a youth in the church, still feels so new and inspiring even now.

One of the hymns I remember from my Lutheran upbringing in Wisconsin. I just sang all five verses and feel renewed. I am delighted to find the lyrics to this hymn on the Internet.

"Health hath vouchsafed and, when heedlessly falling, hath stayed thee.

What need or grief ever hath failed or relief?

Wings of His mercy did shade thee."

"Ponder anew what the Almighty can do, who with His love doth befriend thee. "

The Lord always comes through for us and is there for us with His loving presence when we stop and quiet ourselves to listen, when other streams run dry. Thank You Lord for Your mercy and faithfulness!
