Praise for the Lord’s Kindness
1Praise the Lord!
Praise him, you servants of the Lord;
praise the name of the Lord.
2The Lord’s name should be praised
now and forever.
3The Lord’s name should be praised
from where the sun rises to where it sets.
4The Lord is supreme over all the nations;
his glory reaches to the skies.
5No one is like the Lord our God,
who rules from heaven,
6who bends down to look
at the skies and the earth.
7The Lord lifts the poor from the dirt
and takes the helpless from the ashes.
8He seats them with princes,
the princes of his people.
9He gives children to the woman who has none
and makes her a happy mother.
Praise the Lord!
