The Lord is gracious and compassionate,(A)
    slow to anger and rich in love.(B)

The Lord is good(C) to all;
    he has compassion(D) on all he has made.
10 All your works praise you,(E) Lord;
    your faithful people extol(F) you.(G)
11 They tell of the glory of your kingdom(H)
    and speak of your might,(I)
12 so that all people may know of your mighty acts(J)
    and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.(K)
13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,(L)
    and your dominion endures through all generations.

The Lord is trustworthy(M) in all he promises(N)
    and faithful in all he does.[a]
14 The Lord upholds(O) all who fall
    and lifts up all(P) who are bowed down.(Q)
15 The eyes of all look to you,
    and you give them their food(R) at the proper time.
16 You open your hand
    and satisfy the desires(S) of every living thing.

17 The Lord is righteous(T) in all his ways
    and faithful in all he does.(U)
18 The Lord is near(V) to all who call on him,(W)
    to all who call on him in truth.
19 He fulfills the desires(X) of those who fear him;(Y)
    he hears their cry(Z) and saves them.(AA)
20 The Lord watches over(AB) all who love him,(AC)
    but all the wicked he will destroy.(AD)

21 My mouth will speak(AE) in praise of the Lord.
    Let every creature(AF) praise his holy name(AG)
    for ever and ever.
