Praise the Lord. Sing praises, you servants of the Lord; *
O praise the Name of the Lord.
Blessed be the Name of the Lord, *
from this time forth for evermore.
The Lord’s Name be praised *
from the rising up of the sun to the going down of the same.
The Lord is high above all nations, *
and his glory above the heavens.
Who is like the Lord our God, who has his dwelling so high, *
and yet humbles himself to behold the things that are in heaven and earth?
He takes up the lowly out of the dust, *
and lifts the poor out of the ashes,
That he may set them with the princes, *
even with the princes of his people.
He gives the barren woman a home to dwell in, *
and makes her to be a joyful mother of children. Praise the Lord.
