1 I will lift my praise above everything to You, my God and King! I will continually bless Your name forever and always. 2 My praise will never cease— I will praise You every day; I will lift up Your name forever. 3 The Eternal is great and deserves endless praise; His greatness knows no limit, recognizes no boundary. No one can measure or comprehend His magnificence.
4 One generation after another will celebrate Your great works; they will pass on the story of Your powerful acts to their children. 5 Your majesty and glorious splendor have captivated me; I will meditate on Your wonders, sing songs of Your worth. 6 We confess—there is nothing greater than You, God, nothing mightier than Your awesome works. I will tell of Your greatness as long as I have breath. 7 The news of Your rich goodness is no secret— Your people love to recall it and sing songs of joy to celebrate Your righteousness.
8 The Eternal is gracious. He shows mercy to His people. For Him anger does not come easily, but faithful love does—and it is rich and abundant. 9 But the Eternal’s goodness is not exclusive—it is offered freely to all. His mercy extends to all His creation.
10 All creation will stand in awe of You, O Eternal One. Thanks will pour from the mouths of every one of Your creatures; Your holy people will bless You. 11 They will not be silent; they will talk of the grandeur of Your kingdom and celebrate the wonder of Your power 12 Until everyone on earth who has ears to hear knows Your valiant acts and the splendor of Your kingdom. 13 Your kingdom will never end; Your rule will endure forever.
[You are faithful to Your promise, and Your acts are marked with grace.][b] 14 The Eternal sustains all who stumble on their way. For those who are broken down, God is near. He raises them up in hope. 15 All eyes have turned toward You, waiting in expectation; when they are hungry, You feed them right on time. 16 The desires of every living thing are met by Your open hand. 17 The Eternal is right in all His ways, and He is kind in all His acts. 18 The Eternal stays close to those who call on Him, those who pray sincerely. 19 All of you who revere Him— God will satisfy your desires. He hears the cries for help, and He brings salvation. 20 All of you who love God— He will watch out for you, but total destruction is around the corner for all the wicked.
21 My lips will sing the praise of the Eternal. Let every creature join me and praise the holy name of God—forever and always!
