1 Praise ye the Lord. Praise, O ye servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord.
2 Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and for evermore.
3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord's name to be praised.
4 The Lord high above all nations, his glory above the heavens.
5 Who like unto the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high,
6 Who humbleth to behold in heaven, and in the earth!
7 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;
8 That he may set with princes, with the princes of his people.
9 He maketh the barren woman to keep house, a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the Lord.
