All Creation Praise the Creator
1Sing for joy to Adonai, you righteous. Praise is fitting for the upright.
2Praise Adonai with the harp. Sing praises to Him with a ten string lyre.
3Sing to Him a new song! Play skillfully amid shouts of joy.
4For the word of Adonai is upright and all His work is done in faithfulness.
5He loves righteousness and justice. The earth is full of the love of Adonai.
6By Adonai’s word were the heavens made, and all their host by the breath of His mouth.
7He gathers the waters of the sea together in a heap. He lays up deep waters in storehouses.
8Let all the earth fear Adonai. Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
9For He spoke, and it came to be. He commanded, and it stood firm.
10Adonai foils the purpose of the nations. He thwarts the plans of the peoples.
11The plan of Adonai stands forever, the purposes of His heart from generation to generation.
12Blessed is the nation whose God is Adonai, the people He chose for His own inheritance.
13Adonai looks down from heaven. He observes all humanity.
14From His dwelling place He gazes on all the inhabitants of the earth—
15He who fashions the hearts of all, who discerns all their deeds.
16No king is saved by his great army, no warrior is delivered by great strength.
17A horse is a false hope for victory, nor can its great strength save.
18Behold, the eyes of Adonai are on those who fear Him, waiting for His love,
19to deliver their souls from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
20Our soul waits for Adonai— He is our help and our shield.
21Our heart rejoices in Him, because we trusted in His holy Name.
22Let Your lovingkindness, Adonai, be upon us, as we have waited for You.
