[a] God Is Kind

113 Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!
    Go ahead, praise the Lord, all you loving servants of God!
    Keep it up! Praise him some more!
For the glorious name of the Lord is blessed forever and ever.
From sunrise-brilliance to sunset-beauty,
    lift up his praise from dawn to dusk!
For he rules on high over the nations
    with a glory that outshines even the heavens.
No one can be compared to God, enthroned on high!
He stoops down to look upon the sky and the earth.
He promotes the poor, picking them up from the dirt,
    and rescues the needy from the garbage dump.
He turns paupers into princes and seats them
    on their royal thrones of honor.
God’s grace provides for the barren ones a joyful home with children
    so that even childless couples find a family.
    He makes them happy parents surrounded by their pride and joy.
    That’s the God we praise, so give it all to him!
