15  A Song of God’s Greatness

1    Bless the Lord, O my soul.  

O Lord my God, how excellent is your greatness!

2    You are clothed with majesty and honour,  

wrapped in light as in a garment.

3    The sun knows the time for its setting.  

You make darkness that it may be night.

4    O Lord, how manifold are your works!  

In wisdom you have made them all;

the earth is full of your creatures.

5    When you send forth your spirit, they are created,  

and you renew the face of the earth.

6    May the glory of the Lord endure for ever;  

may the Lord rejoice in his works;

7    I will sing to the Lord as long as I live;  

I will make music to my God while I have my being.

Psalm 104.1,2,21b,22a,26,32,33,35

All   Glory to the Father and to the Son

and to the Holy Spirit;

as it was in the beginning is now

and shall be for ever. Amen.
