[Diocese of Mauritius - Indian Ocean] Psa 104:1 O LORD, my God, how great you are! You are clothed with majesty and glory;
Psa 104:2 you cover yourself with light. You have spread out the heavens like a tent
Psa 104:3 and built your home on the waters above. You use the clouds as your chariot and ride on the wings of the wind.
Psa 104:4 You use the winds as your messengers and flashes of lightning as your servants.
Psa 104:5 You have set the earth firmly on its foundations, and it will never be moved.
Psa 104:6 You placed the ocean over it like a robe, and the water covered the mountains.
Psa 104:7 When you rebuked the waters, they fled; they rushed away when they heard your shout of command.
Psa 104:8 They flowed over the mountains and into the valleys, to the place you had made for them.
Psa 104:9 You set a boundary they can never pass, to keep them from covering the earth again.
Psa 104:10 You make springs flow in the valleys, and rivers run between the hills.
Psa 104:11 They provide water for the wild animals; there the wild donkeys quench their thirst.
Psa 104:12 In the trees near by, the birds make their nests and sing.
Psa 104:13 From the sky you send rain on the hills, and the earth is filled with your blessings.
Psa 104:14 You make grass grow for the cattle and plants for us to use, so that we can grow our crops
Psa 104:15 and produce wine to make us happy, olive oil to make us cheerful, and bread to give us strength.
Psa 104:16 The cedars of Lebanon get plenty of rain--- the LORD's own trees, which he planted.
