Praise, you servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord.
Blessed be the name of the Lord both now and forever.
From the rising of the sun to its setting let the name of the Lord be praised.
High above all nations is the Lord; above the heavens God’s glory.
Who is like the Lord, our God enthroned on high, looking down on heaven and earth?
The Lord raises the needy from the dust, lifts the poor from the ash heap,
seats them with princes, the princes of the people,
gives the childless wife a home, the joyful mother of children.
