1 Praise the Lord! aPraise, O bservants of the Lord, Praise the name of the Lord. 2 aBlessed be the name of the Lord From this time forth and forever. 3 aFrom the rising of the sun to its setting The bname of the Lord is to be praised. 4 The Lord is ahigh above all nations; His bglory is above the heavens. 5 aWho is like the Lord our God, Who bis enthroned on high, 6 Who ahumbles Himself to behold The things that are in heaven and in the earth? 7 He araises the poor from the dust And lifts the needy from the ash heap, 8 To make them asit with princes, With the princes of His people. 9 He amakes the barren woman abide in the house As a joyful mother of children. Praise the Lord!
