A Psalm of praise; of David.
1I will extol thee, my God, O King; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever. 2Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever. 3Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable. 4One generation shall laud thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts. 5Of the glorious majesty of thine honour, and of thy wondrous works, will I meditate. 6And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts; and I will declare thy greatness. 7They shall utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness. 8The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. 9The Lord is good to all; and his tender mercies are over all his works. 10All thy works shall give thanks unto thee, O Lord; and thy saints shall bless thee. 11They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power; 12To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glory of the majesty of his kingdom. 13Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations. 14The Lord upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down. 15The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season. 16Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing. 17The Lord is righteous in all his ways, and gracious in all his works. 18The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. 19He will fulfill the desire of them that fear him; he also will hear their cry, and will save them. 20The Lord preserveth all them that love him; but all the wicked will he destroy. 21My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord; and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.
