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!
