Give praise, you servants of the LORD;*
praise the Name of the LORD.
2 Let the Name of the LORD be blessed,*
from this time forth for evermore.
3 From the rising of the sun to its going down*
let the Name of the LORD be praised.
4 The LORD is high above all nations,*
and his glory above the heavens.
5 Who is like the LORD our God, who sits enthroned on high,*
but stoops to behold the heavens and the earth?
6 He takes up the weak out of the dust*
and lifts up the poor from the ashes.
7 He sets them with the princes,*
with the princes of his people.
8 He makes the woman of a childless house*
to be a joyful mother of children.
