Psalm 104

Praise the Lord my soul. Here’s why:
God is very great
God is clothed with splendor and majesty
God wraps Himself in light
The heavens are God’s tent
The clouds are God’s chariots
God rides on the wings of the wind
God makes wind His messenger
God makes fire His servant
God set the earth on its foundation so it can’t be moved
God covered the earth with oceans higher than the mountains
At God’s word the waters receded to where He assigned them
God set a boundary for the waters
God makes springs to flow between the mountains into ravines
God waters the animals
God provides nests for the birds
God waters the mountains from heaven
God satisfies the earth with His work and its fruit
God grows grass for the cattle
God grows plants for man to cultivate
God brings forth food
God brings forth wine to gladden hearts
God brings forth oil to make faces shine
God brings forth bread to sustain hearts
God waters His trees that He planted
Birds make their nests in the trees that God planted
The stork has its home in the pine trees
The high mountains belong to the high goats
The crags are a refuge for the rock badgers
The moon marks off the seasons
The sun knows when to go down
God brings darkness and at night the beast of the forest prowl
The lions roar for their prey and seek their food from God
The sun rises, the beasts of the forest return to their dens, and man goes out to his work until evening.

God’s works are many!
God made them in wisdom
The earth is full of God’s creatures
The sea teems with creatures beyond number – large and small
The ships go to and fro in the vast and spacious sea
The sea monster frolics there
All creatures look to God for their food
When You give they gather and are satisfied
When You hide their face, they are terrified
When You take away their breath, they die and return to dust
When You send Your spirit, they are created and renewed

God’s glory endures forever
God rejoices in his work
God looks at the earth and it trembles
God touches the mountains and they smoke

Sing praise all your life
Rejoice and make your meditation pleasing
Sinner and wicked will vanish

Praise the Lord!
