1
Praise ye the LORD.
Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD.
2
Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.
3
From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord’s name is to be praised.
4
The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens.
5
Who is like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high,
6
Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!
7
He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;
8
That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.
9
He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children.
Praise ye the LORD.
