1 I will speak highly of you, my God and King, and I will bless your name forever and ever. 2 I will bless you every day and I will praise your name forever and ever.
3 The LORD is great, and to be praised highly, though his greatness is indescribable. 4 One generation will acclaim your works to another and will describe your mighty actions. 5 I will speak about the glorious splendor of your majesty as well as your awesome actions. 6 People will speak about the might of your great deeds, and I will announce your greatness. 7 They will extol the fame of your abundant goodness, and will sing out loud about your righteousness.
8 Gracious and merciful is the LORD, slow to become angry, and overflowing with gracious love. 9 The LORD is good to everyone and his mercies extend to everything he does. 10 LORD, everything you have done will praise you, and your holy ones will bless you. 11 They will speak about the glory of your kingdom, and they will talk about your might, 12 in order to make known your mighty acts to mankind as well as the majestic splendor of your kingdom. 13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your authority endures from one generation to another. God is faithful about everything he says and merciful in everything he does.
14 The LORD supports everyone who falls and raises up those who are bowed down. 15 Everyone's eyes are on you, as you give them their food in due time. 16 You open your hand and keep on satisfying the desire of every living thing.
17 The LORD is righteous in all of his ways and graciously loving in all of his activities. 18 The LORD remains near to all who call out to him, to everyone who calls out to him sincerely. 19 He fulfills the desire of those who fear him, hearing their cry and saving them. 20 The LORD preserves everyone who loves him, but he will destroy all of the wicked. 21 My mouth will praise the LORD, and all creatures will bless his holy name forever and ever.
