From The Message, the opening verses of Psalm 104 read: “O my soul, bless God! God, my God, how great you are: beautifully robed, dressed up in sunshine, and all heaven stretched out for your tent. You built your palace on the ocean deeps, made a chariot out of clouds, and took off on wind-wings.

In the wild wind’s song;
in the snowflakes’ whirling dance,
hearts beat fast with joy.
