A meditation upon the mighty power,
Psalms 104:1 Prayse the LORDE o my soule: O LORDE my God, thou art become exceadinge glorious, thou art clothed with maiesty and honoure. Psalms 104:2 Thou deckest thy self with light, as it were wt a garment, thou spredest out the heauen like a curtayne. Psalms 104:3 Thou voltest it aboue with waters, thou makest the cloudes thy charet, and goest vpon the wynges of the wynde. Psalms 104:4 Thou makest thine angels spretes, and thy ministers flammes of fyre. Psalms 104:5 Thou hast layed ye earth vpon hir foundacion, that it neuer moueth at eny tyme. Psalms 104:6 Thou couerest it with the depe like as with a garmet, so that the waters stonde aboue the hilles.
and wonderful providence of God.
Psalms 104:7 But at thy rebuke they fle, at the voyce of thy thonder they are afrayed. Psalms 104:8 Then are the hilles sene alofte, & the valleys beneth in their place which thou hast appoynted for the. Psalms 104:9 Thou hast set them their boundes, which they maie not passe, that they turne not agayne to couer ye earth. Psalms 104:10 Thou causest the welles to sprynge vp amonge the valleys, and the waters runne amonge ye hilles. Psalms 104:11 That all the beastes of the felde maye haue drynke, & that the wylde asses maye quench their thyrste. Psalms 104:12 Aboue vpon the hilles haue the foules of the ayre their habitacion, and synge amonge the braunches. Psalms 104:13 Thou watrest the hylles from aboue, the erth is fylled with ye frutes of thy workes. Psalms 104:14 Thou bryngest forth grasse for the catell, and grene herbe for the seruyce of men. Psalms 104:15 Thou bryngest fode out of the earth: wyne to make glad ye herte of ma, oyle to make him a chearfull countenaunce, & bred to strength mans herte. Psalms 104:16 The trees of the LORDE are full of sappe, euen the trees of Libanus which he hath planted. Psalms 104:17 There make the byrdes their nestes, and the fyrre trees are a dwellinge for the storcke. Psalms 104:18 The hilles are a refuge for the wylde goates, and so are the stony rockes for ye conyes. Psalms 104:19 Thou hast appoynted the Moone for certayne seasons, the Sonne knoweth his goinge downe. Psalms 104:20 Thou makest darcknesse, that it maye be night, wherin all the beastes of the forest do moue. Psalms 104:21 Yee and the yonge lyons which roare after the praye, and seke their meate at God. Psalms 104:22 But when the Sonne ariseth, they get them awaye together, and lye them downe in their dennes. Psalms 104:23 Then goeth man forth to his worke, and to till his londe vntill the euenynge. Psalms 104:24 O LORDE, how manifolde are thy workes, right wysely hast thou made the all: yee the earth is full of thy riches. Psalms 104:25 So is this greate and wyde see also, wherin are thinges crepinge innumerable, both small and greate beastes. Psalms 104:26 There go the shippes ouer, and there is that Leuiathan, whom thou hast made, to take his pastyme therin. Psalms 104:27 They wayte all vpo the, that thou mayest geue them meate in due season. Psalms 104:28 Whe thou geuest it them, they gather it: whe thou openest thine honde, they are fylled with good. Psalms 104:29 But when thou hydest thy face, they are soroufull: yf thou takest awaye their breth, they dye, & are turned agayne to their dust. Psalms 104:30 Agayne, when thou lattest thy breth go forth, they are made, and so thou renuest the face of the earth.
God's glory is eternal.
Psalms 104:31 The glorious magesty of the LORDE endureth for euer, and the LORDE reioyseth in his workes. Psalms 104:32 The earth trebleth at the loke of him, he doth but touch ye hilles and they smoke.
The prophet voweth perpetually to praise God.
Psalms 104:33 I will synge vnto the LORDE as longe as I lyue, I wil prayse my God whyle I haue my beinge. Psalms 104:34 O that my wordes might please him, for my ioye is in the LORDE. Psalms 104:35 As for synners, they shalbe cosumed out of the earth, and the vngodly shal come to an ende: but prayse thou the LORDE, o my soule. Halleluya.
