Praise to the Merciful God

1 Hallelujah!
Give praise, servants of Yahweh;
praise the name of Yahweh.(A)
2 Let the name of Yahweh be praised
both now and forever.(B)
3 From the rising of the sun to its setting,
let the name of Yahweh be praised.(C)
Yahweh is exalted above all the nations,(D)
His glory above the heavens.(E)
Who is like Yahweh our God—
the One enthroned on high,(F)
who stoops down to look
on the heavens and the earth?(G)
He raises the poor from the dust
and lifts the needy from the garbage pile(H)
in order to seat them with nobles—
with the nobles of His people.(I)
He gives the childless woman a household,
making her the joyful mother of children.(J)
