Psalm text (Salmo 103, 1-2a. 5-6. 10 y 12. 13-14. 24 y 35c.)

Bendice al Señor, alma mía.

Bendice al Señor, alma mía;
Señor y Dios mío, inmensa es tu grandeza.
Te vistes de belleza y majestad,
la luz te envuelve como un manto.

Sobre bases inconmovibles
asentaste la tierra para siempre.
con un vestido de mares la cubriste
y las aguasen los montes concentraste.

En los valles hacer brotar las fuentes,
que van corriendo entre montañas;
junto al arroyo vienen a vivir las aves,
que cantan entre las ramas.

Desde tu cielo riegas los montes
y sacias la tierra del fruto de tus manos;
haces brotar hierba para los ganados
y pasto para los que sirven al hombre.

¡Que numerosas son tus obras, Señor,
y todas las hiciste con maestría!
La tierra está llena de tus creaturas.
Bendice al Señor, alma mía

Psalm text (Ps 104:1-2, 5-6, 10+12, 13-14, 24+35)

Lord, send out Your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth.

Bless the Lord, O my soul!
O Lord, my God, You are great indeed!
You are clothed with majesty and glory,
robed in light as with a cloak.

You fixed the earth upon its foundation,
not to be moved forever;
with the ocean, as with a grament, You covered it;
above the mountains the waters stood.

You send forth springs into the watercourses
that wind among the mountains.
Beside them the birds of heaven dwell;
from among the branches they send forth their song.

You water the mountains from Your palace;
the earth is replete with the fruit of Your works.
You raise grass for the cattle, and vegetation for man's use,
producing bread from the earth.

How manifold are Your works, O Lord!
In wisdom You have wrought them all--
the earth is full of Your creatures.
Bless the Lord, O my soul!
