Psalm 145The Message (MSG)
145 I lift you high in praise, my God, O my King!
2 I’ll bless you every day,
3 God is magnificent; he can never be praised enough.
4 Generation after generation stands in awe of your work;
5 Your beauty and splendor have everyone talking;
6 Your marvelous doings are headline news;
7 The fame of your goodness spreads across the country;
8 God is all mercy and grace—
9 God is good to one and all;
10-11 Creation and creatures applaud you, God;
They talk about the glories of your rule,
12 Letting the world know of your power for good,
13 Your kingdom is a kingdom eternal;
God always does what he says,
14 God gives a hand to those down on their luck,
15 All eyes are on you, expectant;
16 Generous to a fault,
17 Everything God does is right—
18 God’s there, listening for all who pray,
19 He does what’s best for those who fear him—
20 God sticks by all who love him,
21 My mouth is filled with God’s praise.
