1 Hallelujah! Give praise, you servants of the LORD. Praise the name of the LORD! 2 May the name of the LORD be blessed from now to eternity. 3 From rising to setting sun, may the name of the LORD be praised.
4 The LORD is exalted high above all the nations; his glory beyond the heavens. 5 Who is like the LORD our God, enthroned on high, 6 yet stooping low to observe the sky and the earth? 7 He lifts the poor person from the dust, raising the needy from the trash pile 8 and giving him a seat among nobles with the nobles of his people. 9 He makes the barren woman among her household a happy mother of joyful children. Hallelujah!
