Psalm 113

1Praise the Lord!

Praise, O servants | of the Lord,*

       praise the name | of the Lord!

2Blessèd be the name | of the Lord*

       from this time forth and for- | evermore!

3From the rising of the sun to its | setting,*

       the name of the Lord is | to be praised!

4The Lord is high above all | nations,*

       and his glory above the | heavens!

5Who is like the |Lord our God,*

       who is seated | on high,

6who looks | far down*

       on the heavens | and the earth?

7He raises the poor | from the dust*

       and lifts the needy from the | ash heap,

8to make them sit with | princes,*

       with the princes of his | people.

9He gives the barren wom- | an a home,*

       making her the joyous mother

       of children. | Praise the Lord!
