Lobe den Herren, den mächtigen König

Gesangbuch (1996), no. 39

Arranger: William S. Bennett; Otto Goldschmidt

1. Lobe den Herren, den mächtigen König der Ehren, meine geliebete Seele, das ist mein Begehren. Kommet zuhauf, Psalter und Harfe, wacht auf, lasset den Lobgesang hören!

2. Lobe den Herren, der alles so herrlich regieret, der dich auf Adelers Fittichen sicher geführet, der dich erhält, wie es dir selber gefällt; hast du nicht dieses verspüret?

3. Lobe den Herren, der deinen Stand sichtbar gesegnet, der aus dem Himmel mit Strömen der Liebe geregnet. Denke daran, was der Allmächtige kann, der dir mit Liebe begegnet.

4. Lobe den Herren; was in mir ist, lobe den Namen. Alles, was Odem hat, lobe mit Abrahams Samen. Er ist dein Licht, Seele, vergiß es ja nicht! Lob ihn in Ewigkeit. Amen!

Translator: Catherine Winkworth

Arranger: William S. Bennett; Otto Goldschmidt

1. Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation! O my soul, praise him, for he is thy health and salvation! Join the great throng, Psaltery, organ and song, Sounding in glad adoration!

2. Praise to the Lord! Over all things he gloriously reigneth. Borne as on eagle wings, safely his Saints he sustaineth. Hast thou not seen How all thou needest hath been Granted in what he ordaineth?

3. Praise to the Lord, who doth prosper thy way and defend thee. Surely his goodness and mercy shall ever attend thee. Ponder anew What the Almighty can do, Who with his love doth befriend thee.

4. Praise to the Lord! Oh, let all that is in me adore him! All that hath breath, join with Abraham’s seed to adore him! Let the “amen” Sum all our praises again, Now as we worship before him.
