Ponder anew what the Almighty can do

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation!
O my soul, praise Him, for He is thy health and salvation!
All ye who hear, now to His temple draw near;
Praise Him in glad adoration.

Praise to the Lord, Who doth prosper thy work and defend thee;
Surely His goodness and mercy here daily attend thee.
Ponder anew what the Almighty can do,
If with His love He befriend thee.

Praise to the Lord, O let all that is in me adore Him!
All that hath life and breath, come now with praises before Him.
Let the Amen sound from His people again,
Gladly for aye we adore Him.

Hymn written by
Joachim Neander in 1680 (translated by Catherine Winkworth).
See
Praise to the Lord, the Almighty in the Cyber Hymnal for all the verses. Thanks to Julian Smithe for sending this via e-mail.
