Praise of God the Creator


All of these look to you

to give them food in due time.

When you give it to them, they gather;

when you open your hand, they are well filled.

When you hide your face, they panic.

Take away their breath, they perish

and return to the dust.

Send forth your spirit, they are created

and you renew the face of the earth.

May the glory of the LORD endure forever;

may the LORD be glad in his works!

Who looks at the earth and it trembles,

touches the mountains and they smoke!

I will sing to the LORD all my life;

I will sing praise to my God while I live.

May my meditation be pleasing to him;

I will rejoice in the LORD.

May sinners vanish from the earth,

and the wicked be no more.

Bless the LORD, my soul! Hallelujah!

Psalm 104.27-35
