O Lord, how many are Your works!
[a]In wisdom You have made them all;
The earth is full of Your [b]possessions.
[c]There is the sea, great and [d]broad,
In which are swarms without number,
Animals both small and great.
There the ships move along,
And [e]Leviathan, which You have formed to sport in it.
They all wait for You
To give them their food in [f]due season.
You give to them, they gather it up;
You open Your hand, they are satisfied with good.
You hide Your face, they are dismayed;
You take away their [g]spirit, they expire
And return to their dust.
You send forth Your [h]Spirit, they are created;
And You renew the face of the ground.
