first part of Psalm 104

He appointed the moon for seasons:
the sun knoweth his going down.
Thou makest darkness, and it is night:
wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth .
The young lions roar after their prey,
and seek their meat from God.
The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together,
and lay them down in their dens.
Man goeth forth unto his work
and to his labour until the evening.

O LORD, how manifold are thy works!
in wisdom hast thou made them all:
the earth is full of thy riches.

So is this great and wide sea,
wherein are things creeping innumerable,
both small and great beasts.
There go the ships:
there is that leviathan,
whom thou hast made to play therein.

These wait all upon thee;
that thou mayest give them their meat in due season.
hat thou givest them they gather:
thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good.
Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled:
thou takest away their breath,
they die, and return to their dust.
Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created:
and thou renewest the face of the earth.

The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever:
the LORD shall rejoice in his works.

He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth:
he toucheth the hills, and they smoke.

I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live:
I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.

My meditation of him shall be sweet:
I will be glad in the LORD.

Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth,
and let the wicked be no more.

Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.

Psalm 104
