Bless the Lord, O my soul.
O Lord, how manifold are ' your works!
In wisdom you have made ' them all; *
the earth is full " of your creatures.
Yonder is the sea, great ' and wide,
creeping things innumerable ' are there, *
living things both " small and great.
There go ' the ships,
and Leviathan that you formed to sport ' in it. *
These all look to you to give them their food " in due season;
when you give to them, they gather ' it up; *
when you open your hand, they are filled " with good things.
When you hide your face, they are ' dismayed;
when you take away their breath ' they die *
and return " to their dust.
When you send forth your spirit, they are ' created; *
and you renew the face " of the ground.
May the glory of the Lord endure ' forever; *
may the Lord rejoice " in his works,
who looks on the earth and ' it trembles, *
who touches the mountains " and they smoke.
I will sing to the Lord as long as ' I live; *
I will sing praise to my God while " I have being;
May my meditation be pleasing ' to him, *
for I rejoice " in the Lord.
