Psalm 147

O praise the Lord,
   for it is good to sing praises to our God :
 and to praise him is joyful and right.
The Lord is rebuilding Jerusalem :
 he is gathering together the scattered outcasts of Israel.
He heals the broken in spirit :
 and binds up their wounds.
He counts the number of the stars :
 and calls them all by name.
Great is our Lord, and great is his power :
 there is no measuring his understanding.
The Lord restores the humble :
 but he brings down the wicked to the dust.
O sing to the Lord a song of thanksgiving :
 sing praises to our God upon the harp.
He covers the heavens with cloud,
   and prepares rain for the earth :
 and makes the grass to sprout upon the mountains.
He gives the cattle their food :
 and feeds the young ravens that call to him.
He takes no pleasure in the strength of a horse :
 nor does he delight in any man’s legs,
But the Lord’s delight is in those that fear him :
 who wait in hope for his mercy.
Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem :
 sing praises to your God, O Zion.
For he has strengthened the bars of your gates :
 and blessed your children within you.
