1 Hallelujah. Praise, O ye servants of the Lord, praise ye the name of the Lord.
2 Let the name of the Lord be blessed from this time forth and for evermore.
3 From the rising of the sun unto his going down the name of the Lord is praised.
4 High above all nations is the Lord, above the heavens is his glory.
5 Who is like the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high?
6 Who condescendeth to view what is done in the heavens, and on the earth?
7 He raiseth up out of the dust the poor, from the dunghill he lifteth up the needy:
8 That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.
9 He causeth the barren woman to dwell in the midst of [her] household, the joyful mother of children. Hallelujah.
