1Praise ye the LORD: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.2
The LORD doth build upJerusalem: he gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.3
He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.a4
He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.5Great is our Lord, and of greatpower: his understanding is infinite.6
The LORD lifteth up the meek: he casteth the wickeddown to the ground.7Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God:8
Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who preparethrain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.
