The Majesty and Condescension of God
1Praise the Lord!
#Ps. 135:1Praise, O servants of the Lord,
Praise the name of the Lord!
2#(Dan. 2:20)Blessed be the name of the Lord
From this time forth and forevermore!
3#Is. 59:19; Mal. 1:11From the rising of the sun to its going down
The Lord’s name is to be praised.
4The Lord is #Ps. 97:9; 99:2high above all nations,
#(Ps. 8:1)His glory above the heavens.
5#Ps. 89:6; (Is. 57:15)Who is like the Lord our God,
Who dwells on high,
6#(Ps. 11:4; Is. 57:15)Who humbles Himself to behold
The things that are in the heavens and in the earth?
7#1 Sam. 2:8; Ps. 107:41He raises the poor out of the dust,
And lifts the #Ps. 72:12needy out of the ash heap,
8That He may #(Job 36:7)seat him with princes—
With the princes of His people.
9#1 Sam. 2:5; Is. 54:1He grants the barren woman a home,
Like a joyful mother of children.
Praise the Lord!
