113 Praise the Lord!
Praise, O servants of the Lord,
praise the name of the Lord!
2 Blessed be the name of the Lord
from this time forth and forevermore!
3 From the rising of the sun to its setting,
the name of the Lord is to be praised!
4 The Lord is high above all nations,
and his glory above the heavens!
5 Who is like the Lord our God,
who is seated on high,
6 who looks far down
on the heavens and the earth?
7 He raises the poor from the dust
and lifts the needy from the ash heap,
8 to make them sit with princes,
with the princes of his people.
9 He gives the barren woman a home,
making her the joyous mother of children.
Praise the Lord!
Praise the name of the Lord God. Everyone who works for God be encouraged to praise his Holy name.
Don’t praise Him only now but instead praise him now and forever.
From your time of getting up to the time of resting praise the Lord.
God is not like anything common. For he is exalted above all nations and the glory of heaven. No one can compare to our Lord God who created the heavens and the earth.
Merciful is the Lord for he uplifts the poor and needy. He places them with the princes of his people.
Bountiful are the Lord God’s blessings. He lifts up the barren woman in her affliction so that she receives children bringing much joy to her.
Praise God because he is worthy to be praised!
