"Bless the LORD, O my soul! O LORD my God, thou art very great! Thou art clothed with honor and majesty,
who coverest thyself with light as with a garment, who hast stretched out the heavens like a tent,
who hast laid the beams of thy chambers on the waters, who makest the clouds thy chariot, who ridest on the wings of the wind,
who makest the winds thy messengers, fire and flame thy ministers.
Thou didst set the earth on its foundations, so that it should never be shaken.
Thou didst cover it with the deep as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains.
At thy rebuke they fled; at the sound of thy thunder they took to flight.
The mountains rose, the valleys sank down to the place which thou didst appoint for them.
Thou didst set a bound which they should not pass, so that they might not again cover the earth...
O LORD, how manifold are thy works! In wisdom hast thou made them all; the earth is full of thy creatures...
Praise the LORD!"
- from Psalm 104 (RSV)
