Hymn/Song Information

My soul bless the Lord the Lord is most




My soul, bless the Lord!
the Lord is most great,
With glory arrayed,
majestic His state;
The light is His garment,
the skies are his shade,
And over the waters
His courts has He laid.


He rides on the clouds,
the wings of the storm,
The lightning and wind
His mission perform;
The earth He has founded
her station to keep,
And wrapped as a vesture
about her the deep.


O’er mountain and plain
the dark waters raged;
His voice they obeyed,
the floods were assuaged;
Uplifting the mountains
He ordered a bound,
Forbidding the waters
to cover the ground.


He causes the springs
of water to flow
In streams ’mid the hills
and valleys below;
Beside them with singing
the birds greet the day,
And there the beasts gather
their thirst to allay.


He waters the hills
with rain from the skies,
And plentiful grass
and herbs He supplies,
Supplying the cattle,
and blessing man’s toil
With bread in abundance,
with wine and with oil.


The trees which the Lord
has planted are fed,
And over the earth
their branches are spread;
They keep in their shelter
the birds of the air,
The life of each creature
the Lord makes His care.


Thy Spirit, O Lord,
makes life to abound,
The earth is renewed,
and fruitful the ground;
To God ascribe glory
and wisdom and might,
Let God in His creatures
forever delight.


Rejoicing in God,
my thought shall be sweet,
While sinners depart
in ruin complete;
My soul, bless Jehovah,
His Name be adored,
Come, praise Him,
ye people, and worship the Lord.
