1 Praise the LORD. Praise, O 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 and his glory above the heavens.
5 Who is like the LORD our God who dwells on high,
6 Who humbles himself to behold the things that are in heaven and in the earth?
7 He raises the poor out of the dust and lifts the needy out of the dunghill,
8 So that he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.
9 He makes the barren woman to keep house and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise the LORD.
