PSALM 104:24-34, 35b
METER:  LMD (88 88 88 88)

1.  O Lord, how man-y are your works!
    In wis-dom you have made them all.
    Full of your crea-tures is the earth.
    There is the sea, so great and wide,
    Teem-ing with things in-num-era-ble,
    The liv-ing things both small and great;
    There go the ships; sea mon-sters play.
    They look to you for food they need.
2.  They eat the food that you give them.
    You pro-vide food, and they are filled.
    You turn a-way, and they're a-fraid;
    When you re-move their breath from them
    They die, and they re-turn to dust.
    But when you send your spi-rit forth,
    They are cre-at-ed all a-new,
    And you give new life to your earth.
3.  May Yah-weh's glory e'er en-dure,
    May he re-joice in all his works;
    Earth trem-bles when he looks on it,
    He touch-es moun-tains and they smoke.
    I'll sing to God long as I live;
    I'll praise him ev-er with a song.
    May he be pleased with all my thoughts;
    For I re-joice and bless the Lord.
