My song shall be always of the loving-kindness of the Lord; *
with my mouth will I ever be proclaiming your faithfulness, from one generation to another.
For I have said, “Mercy shall be built up for ever; *
your faithfulness shall be established in the heavens.”
I have made a covenant with my chosen one; *
I have sworn to David my servant:
“Your seed will I establish for ever, *
and set up your throne from one generation to another.”
O Lord, the heavens will praise your wondrous works *
and your faithfulness in the assembly of the saints.
For who in the clouds can be compared unto the Lord? *
And who among the gods is like unto the Lord?
God is greatly to be feared in the council of the saints, *
and to be held in reverence by all those who are round about him.
O Lord God of hosts, who is like you? *
Your faithfulness, most mighty Lord, is round about you.
You rule the raging of the sea; *
you still the waves when they arise.
You have subdued Rahab of the deep, and destroyed her; *
you have scattered your enemies with your mighty arm.
The heavens are yours; the earth also is yours; *
you laid the foundation of the world, and all that is in it.
You have made the north and the south; *
Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in your Name.
You have a mighty arm; *
strong is your hand, and high is your right hand.
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; *
mercy and truth shall go before your face.
Blessed are the people, O Lord, who rejoice in you; *
they shall walk in the light of your countenance.
Their delight shall be in your Name all the day long, *
and in your righteousness shall they make their boast.
For you are the glory of their strength, *
and by your favor you shall lift up our might.
For the Lord is our defense; *
the Holy One of Israel is our King.
