1 Bless the Lord, O my soul. ♦︎
O Lord my God, how excellent is your greatness!
2 You are clothed with majesty and honour, ♦︎
wrapped in light as in a garment.
3 You spread out the heavens like a curtain ♦︎
and lay the beams of your dwelling place in the waters above.
4 You make the clouds your chariot ♦︎
and ride on the wings of the wind.
5 You make the winds your messengers ♦︎
and flames of fire your servants.
6 You laid the foundations of the earth, ♦︎
that it never should move at any time.
7 You covered it with the deep like a garment; ♦︎
the waters stood high above the hills.
8 At your rebuke they fled; ♦︎
at the voice of your thunder they hastened away.
9 They rose up to the hills and flowed down to the valleys beneath, ♦︎
to the place which you had appointed for them.
10 You have set them their bounds that they should not pass, ♦︎
nor turn again to cover the earth.
26 O Lord, how manifold are your works! ♦︎
In wisdom you have made them all;
the earth is full of your creatures.
35 I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; ♦︎
I will make music to my God while I have my being.
