1 Praise the LORD. Praise, you 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 the going down of the same, The LORD's name is to be praised.
4 The LORD is high above all nations, his glory above the heavens. 5 Who is like the LORD, our God, who has his seat on high, 6 Who stoops down to see in heaven and in the earth? 7 He raises up the poor out of the dust. Lifts up the needy from the ash heap; 8 that he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people. 9 He settles the barren woman in her home, as a joyful mother of children. Praise the LORD.
