++Psalm 103 (104)++
Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord, my God, you are verygreat. You are clothed in praise and honor; who covers yourself with light as with a garment, spreading out the heavens as acurtain. You cover your chambers with the waters; you makethe clouds your chariot; you walk on the wings of the wind,you make the angels spirits, and your ministers a flaming fire.You established the earth on its sure foundation; it shall never  be moved. You covered it with the deep as with a garment; thewaters shall stand on the hills. At your rebuke they shall flee; atthe voice of your thunder they shall be alarmed. They go up tothe mountains and down to the plains, to the place which youfounded for them. You have set a boundary which they shallnot pass, neither shall they turn again to cover the earth. Yousend forth fountains among the valleys; the waters shall run between the mountains. They shall give drink to all the beastsof the field; the wild donkeys shall quench their thirst. By themthe birds of the heavens shall have their habitation; they shallsing among the rocks. You water the mountains from your chambers; the earth is satisfied with the fruit of your miracles.You make grass grow for the cattle, and vegetation for theservice of man that you may bring bread out of the earth, andwine that gladdens the heart of man, oil to make his facecheerful, and bread which strengthens man’s heart. The trees of the plain shall be full of sap, even the cedars of Lebanon whichyou have planted. There birds will build their nests; the stork has her home in the fir trees. The high mountains are a refugefor stags, and the rock for the rabbits. You appointed the moonfor seasons; the sun knows his going down. You makedarkness and it is night; in it all the wild beasts of the forestwill creep about. Young lions roar for prey, and seek their foodfrom God. The sun rises, and they gather together, and lie downin their dens. Man goes forth to his work, and to his labor untilthe evening. O Lord, how great are your works. In wisdom youhave made them all. The earth is filled with your creation. Thisgreat and wide sea, in which are innumerable living things bothsmall and great. There sail the ships, and there is Leviathanwhich you have made to play there. All wait for you, to givethem their food in due season. When you give it to them, theywill gather it up; when you open your hand, they shall be filledwith goodness. But when you have turned away your face, theyshall be troubled. When you take away their breath, they fail,and return to their dust. You sent forth your Spirit, and they arecreated; and you renew the face of the earth. May the glory of the Lord endure forever; may the Lord rejoice in his works;who looks upon the earth and makes it tremble; who touchesthe mountains and they smoke. I will sing praises to the Lordall my life; I will sing praises to my God as long as I live. Maymy meditation be sweet to him; I will rejoice in the Lord. Maysinners and wicked men disappear from the earth and may they be no more. Bless the Lord, O my soul.(Again)The sun knows its going down. You make darkness, and it isnight. O Lord, how great are your works. In wisdom you havemade them all.+Glory to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now andforever and to the ages of ages. Amen.Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia. Glory to you, O God (3). our hope,O Lord, glory to you.
