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