The King of creation
O my soul, praise Him, for He is
Thy health and salvation
All ye who hear
Brothers and sisters draw near
Praise Him in glad adoration

Praise to the Lord, who doth prosper thy
Work and defend thee
Surely His goodness and mercy here
Daily attend thee
Ponder anew
What the Almighty can do
Who with His love doth befriend thee

Praise to the Lord, who doth nourish thy life
And restore thee
Fitting thee well for the tasks that are ever
Before thee
Then to thy need
He like a mother doth speed
Spreading the wings of grace o'er thee

Praise to the Lord! O let all that is within 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

Joachim Neander (1650-80)
Tr. Catherine Winkworth (1829-78)
and Percy Dearmer (1867-1936)
