113 [a]Praise the Lord! ([b]Hallelujah!) Praise, O servants of the Lord, Praise the name of the Lord. 2 Blessed be the name of the Lord From this time forth and forever. 3 From the rising of the sun to its setting The name of the Lord is to be praised [with awe-inspired reverence]. 4 The Lord is high above all nations, And His glory above the heavens.
5 Who is like the Lord our God, Who is enthroned on high, 6 Who humbles Himself to regard The heavens and the earth? 7 He raises the poor out of the dust And lifts the needy from the ash heap, 8 That He may seat them with princes, With the princes of His people. 9 He makes the barren woman live in the house As a joyful mother of children. Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)
