1 Praise the Lord. Praise him, you who serve the Lord. Praise the name of the Lord.
2 Let us praise the name of the Lord, both now and forever.
3 From the sunrise in the east to the sunset in the west, may the name of the LORD be praised.
4 The LORD is honored over all of the nations. His glory reaches to the highest heavens.
5 Who is like the LORD our God? He sits on his throne in heaven.
6 He bends down to look at the heavens and the earth.
7 He raises poor people up from the trash pile. He lifts needy people out of the ashes.
8 He lets them sit with princes. He lets them sit with the princes of their own people.
9 He gives children to the woman who doesn't have any children. He makes her a happy mother in her own home. Praise the Lord.
