1 I will give thanks to you, O Lord, with my whole heart; ♦︎
before the gods will I sing praise to you.
2 I will bow down towards your holy temple and praise your name,
because of your love and faithfulness; ♦︎
for you have glorified your name
and your word above all things.
3 In the day that I called to you, you answered me; ♦︎
you put new strength in my soul.
4 All the kings of the earth shall praise you, O Lord, ♦︎
for they have heard the words of your mouth.
5 They shall sing of the ways of the Lord, ♦︎
that great is the glory of the Lord.
6 Though the Lord be high, he watches over the lowly; ♦︎
as for the proud, he regards them from afar.
7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
you will preserve me; ♦︎
you will stretch forth your hand against the fury of my enemies;
your right hand will save me.
8 The Lord shall make good his purpose for me; ♦︎
your loving-kindness, O Lord, endures for ever;
forsake not the work of your hands.
Praise the Lord from the heavens; ♦︎
praise him in the heights.
2 Praise him, all you his angels; ♦︎
praise him, all his host.
3 Praise him, sun and moon; ♦︎
praise him, all you stars of light.
4 Praise him, heaven of heavens, ♦︎
and you waters above the heavens.
5 Let them praise the name of the Lord, ♦︎
for he commanded and they were created.
6 He made them fast for ever and ever; ♦︎
he gave them a law which shall not pass away.
7 Praise the Lord from the earth, ♦︎
you sea monsters and all deeps;
8 Fire and hail, snow and mist, ♦︎
tempestuous wind, fulfilling his word;
9 Mountains and all hills, ♦︎
fruit trees and all cedars;
10 Wild beasts and all cattle, ♦︎
creeping things and birds on the wing;
11 Kings of the earth and all peoples, ♦︎
princes and all rulers of the world;
12 Young men and women,
old and young together; ♦︎
let them praise the name of the Lord.
13 For his name only is exalted, ♦︎
his splendour above earth and heaven.
14 He has raised up the horn of his people
and praise for all his faithful servants, ♦︎
the children of Israel, a people who are near him.
