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;
Sing now in glad adoration!
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?
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.
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.
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.

I played this song during my daily devotions and reflect on my school days. We would have morning prayers and assembly and the Kolij boys would thunderously this favourite. Praise to the Lord O let all that is in me adore Him. What a blessed saviour He is.

This beautiful hymn of Zion blessed my heart this morning. I had not heard it or sang it in years. It’s all good but ….. Ponder anew, what The Almighty can do, Who with His love doth befriend thee…. really stood out for me this morning. All praise and all adoration to The Lord who is Our Soon Coming King. Amen & Amen.

A soul stirring hymn! When I sing this hymn two to three times at the beginning of my personal prayer to savour the words and meaning of the hymn, I feel a holy presence and I cannot my joy and then tears come rolling down. I love His presence... it’s like a fire burning inside of me. Thanks to the lyrics writer and to the one who gave the rhythm and melody to this song.

This song welled up from within my spirit after a session of recalling the faithfulness of God together with my mother. Indeed being in Christ is the greatest blessing ever, through it we have unhindered access to all of God's goodness! Hallelujah!!!
