Praise to the Lord, the Almighty
Joachim Neander, 1679; German text
|Praise to the Lord, the Almighty,|
The King of creation!
O my soul, praise Him,
For He is Thy Health and Salvation!
Join the full throng:
Wake, harp and psalter and song;
Sound forth in glad adoration!
2. Praise to the Lord, who o'er all things
|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
|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.
