Praise to the Lord, the Almighty

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty (written by Joachim Neander, translated by Catherine Winkworth, sung by Fernando Ortega)

"Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise His holy name. 
 Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits--
 who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,
 who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,
 who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's." Psalm 103:1-5
"May the peoples praise You, O God; may all the peoples praise You." Psalm 67:3

"Praise to the Lord, who with marvelous wisdom hath made thee, decked thee with health, and with loving hand guided and stayed thee. How oft in grief hath not He brought thee relief, spreading His wings to o'er shade thee!" (the fourth stanza of the hymn that is not sung in this video)

Thanks for posting a version of Joachim Neander's great hymn. Today is the 330th anniversary of his death, but his notes of praise are still sounding forth. You can learn a bit more about this man on my daily blog on hymns, Wordwise Hymns for today.
