The storm makes my heart beat wildly.
Listen all of you to the voice of God,
To the thunder that comes from His mouth.
He sends the lightning accross the sky,
From one end of the earth to the other.
Then the roar of His voice is heard,
The majestic sound of thunder,
And all the while the lightning flashes.
At God's command amazing things happen,
Wonderful things that we can't understand.
He commands snow to fall on the earth,
And sends toreents of drenching rain.
He brings our work to a stop,
He shows us what He can do.
The wild animals go their dens.
The storm winds come from the south,
And the biting cold from the north.
The breadth of God freezes the waters,
And turns them to solid ice.
Lightning flashes from the clouds,
As they move at God's will.
They all do what God commands,
Everywhere throughout the world.
God sends rain to water the earth,
He may send it to punish us,
Or to show us His favour.
I thank you Lord with all my heart,
I sing praise to you before the gods.
I face your holy temple,
Bow down and praise your name,
Because of your constant love and faithfulness,
Because you have shown that your name and your commands are supreme.
You answered me when I called to you,
With your strength you strengthened me.
Even though you are so high above,
You care for the lowly,
And the proud cannot hide from you.
When I am sorrounded by troubles,
You keep me safe.
You oppose my angry enemies
And save me by your power.
You will do everything you have promised,
Lord, your love is eternal.
Complete the work that you have begun.
