Praise the Lord,
O sing praises, you that are his servants :
O praise the name of the Lord.
Let the name of the Lord be blessed :
from this time forward and for ever.
From the rising of the sun to its going down :
let the name of the Lord be praised.
The Lord is exalted over all the nations :
and his glory is above the heavens.
Who can be likened to the Lord our God :
in heaven or upon the earth,
Who has his dwelling so high :
yet condescends to look on things beneath?
He raises the lowly from the dust :
and lifts the poor from out of the dungheap;
He gives them a place among the princes :
even among the princes of his people.
He causes the barren woman to keep house :
and makes her a joyful mother of children.
Praise the Lord.
