All you big things bless the Lord

Mount Kilimanjaro and Lake Victoria

the Rift Valley and the Serengeti Plain

fat baobabs and shady mango trees

bless the Lord

praise and extol him for ever and ever.

All you tiny things bless the Lord

busy black ants and hopping fleas

wriggling tadpoles and mosquito larvae

flying locusts and water drops

pollen dust and tsetse flies

millet seeds and dried dagga

bless the Lord

praise and extol him for ever and ever.
