                                                       Psalm 104

I will sing to the Lord as long as I live

O Lord, how manifold are your works! In wisdom you have made them all;

the earth is full of your creatures.

There go the ships, and Leviathan that you formed to sport in the sea.

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 for ever; 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.

Let sinners be consumed from the earth, and let the wicked be no more.

Bless the Lord, O my soul.

Praise the Lord!

I will sing to the Lord as long as I live
