How good it is to make music for our God,
how joyful to honour him with praise.
2 The Lord builds up Jerusalem
and gathers together the outcasts of Israel.
3 He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up all their wounds.
4 He counts the number of the stars
and calls them all by their names.
5 Great is our Lord and mighty in power;
his wisdom is beyond all telling.
6 The Lord lifts up the poor,
but casts down the wicked to the ground.
7 Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving;
make music to our God upon the lyre;
