Psalm 104
Douay-Rheims Bible

O Lord, My God, You Are Very Great

1{103:1}For David himself. Bless the Lord, O my soul: O Lord my God, thou art exceedingly great. Thou hast put on praise and beauty:

2{103:2}And art clothed with light as with a garment. Who stretchest out the heaven like a pavilion:

3{103:3}Who coverest the higher rooms thereof with water. Who makest the clouds thy chariot: who walkest upon the wings of the winds.

4{103:4}Who makest thy angels spirits: and thy ministers a burning fire.

5{103:5}Who hast founded the earth upon its own bases: it shall not be moved for ever and ever.

6{103:6}The deep like a garment is its clothing: above the mountains shall the waters stand.

7{103:7}At thy rebuke they shall flee: at the voice of thy thunder they shall fear.

8{103:8}The mountains ascend, and the plains descend into the place which thou hast founded for them.

9{103:9}Thou hast set a bound which they shall not pass over; neither shall they return to cover the earth.

10{103:10}Thou sendest forth springs in the vales: between the midst of the hills the waters shall pass.

11{103:11}All the beasts of the field shall drink: the wild asses shall expect in their thirst.

12{103:12}Over them the birds of the air shall dwell: from the midst of the rocks they shall give forth their voices.

13{103:13}Thou waterest the hills from thy upper rooms: the earth shall be filled with the fruit of thy works:

14{103:14}Bringing forth grass for cattle, and herb for the service of men. That thou mayst bring bread out of the earth:

15{103:15}And that wine may cheer the heart of man. That he may make the face cheerful with oil: and that bread may strengthen man's heart.

16{103:16}The trees of the field shall be filled, and the cedars of Libanus which he hath planted:

17{103:17}There the sparrows shall make their nests. The highest of them is the house of the heron.

18{103:18}The high hills are a refuge for the harts, the rock for the irchins.

19{103:19}He hath made the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.

20{103:20}Thou hast appointed darkness, and it is night: in it shall all the beasts of the woods go about:

21{103:21}The young lions roaring after their prey, and seeking their meat from God.

22{103:22}The sun ariseth, and they are gathered together: and they shall lie down in their dens.

23{103:23}Man shall go forth to his work, and to his labour until the evening.

24{103:24}How great are thy works, O Lord ? thou hast made all things in wisdom: the earth is filled with thy riches.

25{103:25}So is this great sea, which stretcheth wide its arms: there are creeping things without number: Creatures little and great.

26{103:26}There the ships shall go. This sea dragon which thou hast formed to play therein.

27{103:27}All expect of thee that thou give them food in season.

28{103:28}What thou givest to them they shall gather up: when thou openest thy hand, they shall all be filled with good.

29{103:29}But if thou turnest away thy face, they shall be troubled: thou shalt take away their breath, and they shall fail, and shall return to their dust.

30{103:30}Thou shalt send forth thy spirit, and they shall be created: and thou shalt renew the face of the earth.

31{103:31}May the glory of the Lord endure for ever: the Lord shall rejoice in his works.

32{103:32}He looketh upon the earth, and maketh it tremble: he troubleth the mountains, and they smoke.

33{103:33}I will sing to the Lord as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.

34{103:34}Let my speech be acceptable to him: but I will take delight in the Lord.

35{103:35}Let sinners be consumed out of the earth, and the unjust, so that they be no more: O my soul, bless thou the Lord.
