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.

Whenever I got thru tough times I refer to this hymn. I love the line that says 'what need of grief, even hath failed to relief?'

The truth is every grief gets relief. Hallelujah!!

Let the Amen sound from His people again!!!

There are 2 additional stanzas before the last stanza:

4b Praise to the Lord, who, when tempests

their warfare are waging,

Who, when the elements

madly around thee are raging,

Biddeth them cease,

turneth their fury to peace,

Whirlwinds and waters assuaging.

------------

4c Praise to the Lord, who, when darkness

of sin is abounding,

Who, when the Godless do triumph,

all virtue confounding,

Sheddeth His light,

chaseth the horrors of night,

Saints with His mercy surrounding.

This hymn stirs my soul to praise and worship the God of our creation, He lives on the planet Heaven, but sent His Spirit-made-flesh to become our Saviour on earth, we know Him as Jesus Christ.... I believe in Heavenly Jesus and His plan of happiness. Merry Christmas! To know us from above, as well as on earth, re-incarnation... pray about it and be taught by His Holy Spirit, as I learnt, on the wind...
