A. 1 Praise ye the LORD.
B. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD,
praise the name of the LORD.
2 Blessed be the name of the LORD
from this time forth and for evermore
3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same
the LORD’s name is to be praised.
C. 4 The LORD is high above all nations,
and his glory above the heavens.
D. 5 Who is like unto the LORD our God,
who dwelleth on high,
C’. 6 Who humbleth himself to behold
the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!
B’. 7 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust,
and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;
8 That he may set him with princes,
even with the princes of his people.
9 He maketh the barren woman to keep house,
and to be a joyful mother of children.
A’. Praise ye the LORD.
