O praise the Lord.
I will praise the Lord with my whole heart :
in the company of the upright and among the congregation.
The works of the Lord are great :
and studied by all who take delight in them.
His deeds are majestic and glorious :
and his righteousness stands for ever.
His marvellous acts have won him a name to be remembered :
the Lord is gracious and merciful.
He gives food to those that fear him :
he remembers his covenant for ever.
He showed his people the power of his acts :
in giving them the heritage of the heathen.
The works of his hands are faithful and just :
and all his commandments are sure;
They stand firm for ever and ever :
they are done in faithfulness and in truth.
He sent redemption to his people,
he ordained his covenant for ever :
holy is his name and worthy to be feared.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
and of good understanding are those that keep his commandments :
his praise shall endure for ever.
