Hallelujah! It's a good thing to sing praise to our God; praise is beautiful, praise is fitting.
God's the one who rebuilds Jerusalem, who regathers Israel's scattered exiles.
He heals the heartbroken and bandages their wounds.
He counts the stars and assigns each a name.
Our Lord is great, with limitless strength; we'll never comprehend what he knows and does
God puts the fallen on their feet again and pushes the wicked into the ditch.
