1 Alleluia. Servants, praise ye the Lord; praise ye the name of the Lord.
2The name of the Lord be blessed; from this time now, and till into the world.
3From the rising of the sun till to the going down; the name of the Lord is worthy to be praised.
4The Lord is high above all folks; and his glory is above heavens.
5Who is as our Lord God, that dwelleth in high things;
6and beholdeth meek things in heaven and in earth?
7Raising a needy man from the earth; and enhancing a poor man from drit.
8That he set him with princes; with the princes of his people.
9Which maketh a barren woman dwell in the house; a glad mother of sons.
